Diagnosing diabetes involves blood tests to measure fasting blood sugar levels, oral glucose tolerance tests, and glycated hemoglobin (HbA1c) tests. Once diagnosed, Ayurvedic treatment for diabetes focuses on balancing the doshas, improving insulin sensitivity, and maintaining healthy blood sugar levels.
The treatment approach includes dietary modifications, lifestyle changes, herbal remedies, and Ayurvedic therapies. A personalized diet plan is created to manage blood sugar levels, emphasizing whole grains, fresh vegetables, lean proteins, and avoiding processed foods and sugary beverages. Regular exercise, stress management techniques, and adequate sleep are vital components of the treatment plan.
Ayurvedic therapies like Panchakarma (detoxification), Abhyanga (therapeutic massage), Swedana (herbal steam therapy), and specific herbal formulations may be prescribed to support overall well-being and enhance the body’s natural healing processes. Regular monitoring of blood sugar levels, medication adjustments, and follow-up consultations are essential for long-term management.
