I pay attention on level of blood sugar of diabetes patients but I do more on finding root cause of the condition during treatment sessions.
Diabetes affects the body’s ability to use blood sugar for energy. The main types include type 1 diabetes, type 2 diabetes, and gestational diabetes. Diabetes insipidus, a rare disorder, is not related to diabetes mellitus (sugar diabetes). Diabetes symptoms may include increased thirst and urination, blurred vision, and fatigue
Earlier onset of the condition, it is not easy to be recognized because there are few symptoms along with it. But early detection and constant managing is crucial. There also higher chance of appearing diabetic complications such as diabetic coma, hypoglycaemia and complications could affect on retina, kidneys and blood vessels.
In Asian medicine, cause of diabetes is heat in spleen. Certain constitutional body type is vulnerable to diabetes and the typed person exposed circumstances like excessive amount of fatty food intake without exercise could increase chance to have the disease.
Emotional conditions such as quick temper, unsolved stress cause internal fire. Asian medicine physiology explains that excessive internal fire stays upper body for a long time, water governing organs, kindey’s function will be failed due to excessive workload of suppressing fire by its water.
To be healthy, fire or heat governing organ, the heart should be always controlled by water governing organ, the kidney not to be overheated. To make long story short, diabetes is result of condition of lack of kidney water and excessive fire in the heart causing unbalance of qui circulation.
If you have following symptoms, you should consult with your doctors.
① Frequent urination
② Drink lot of water or drinks due to serious thirst
③ Feeling tired when eat too much
④ prurius ani
⑤ frequent eating
⑥ sudden weight loss
⑦ gets a boil easily and not disappear
⑧ blur vision or cannot clearly focus on object
I treat diabetes with Asian medicine to help balance of the body in order to maintain proper level of blood sugar and preventing diabetic complications.
