Diabetes mellitus (DM) is a metabolic disorder in which the level of glucose (sugar) in an individual’s blood becomes too high because the body cannot use it properly.
There are two common forms of diabetes. Type 1 diabetes is due to destruction of the insulin producing islet cells in the pancreas (islet of langerhans). Type 2 diabetes is due to relative lack of insulin after many years of increased insulin production by the pancreatic islets, and resistance to the action of insulin in many tissues of the body, especially in muscle. Symptoms of high blood sugar include frequent urination (polyuria), increased thirst (polydipsia), and increased hunger (polyphagia). If left untreated, diabetes can cause many complications.
Chinese Medicine Management of Type 2 Diabetes:
In traditional Chinese medicine, diabetes is categorised as Xiao Ke Bing. The disorder of Xiao Ke refers to the clinical presentations of excessive drinking, excessive intake of food and excessive urination, thus matching the three characteristic presentations of diabetes.
