Diabetes and Homeopathy
Diabetes is a condition in which your blood
glucose level (or blood sugar) is too high. Your blood always has and
requires some glucose in it as your body needs glucose for energy to keep
it functioning. However, too much glucose in the blood is not good for
your health. This condition of high glucose arises due to inability of
the body either to produce enough insulin or use it.
Glucose comes from the food you eat and the blood
carries the glucose to all the cells of your body. Insulin is a hormone
that is generated and released to blood by pancreas. Insulin helps the
glucose in the blood to be carried to cells of your body. If pancreas
doesn't make enough insulin or body doesn't use the insulin, glucose can
not get into the cells causing glucose the blood levels too high.
