To make use of this glucose for energy, a hormone named insulin is needed. People having Diabetes mellitus don’t have sufficient insulin production in their body or the insulin produced is not used for the conversion of glucose into energy. Due to this, the glucose levels in the body increases in the blood damaging the blood vessels of vital organs like the heart, kidneys, eyes or the nervous system. This can lead to complications like heart disease, kidney failure, blindness and can even suffer from a stroke.

What does Diabetes mean in Ayurveda?
