What is diabetes?

Diabetes is a chronic disorder of carbohydrate, fat, and protein metabolism characterized by fasting elevations of blood sugar (glucose) levels and a greatly increased risk of heart disease, stroke, kidney disease, and loss of nerve function. Diabetes can occur when the pancreas does not secrete enough insulin or if the cells of the body become resistant to insulin. Hence, the blood sugar cannot get into the cells, and this condition then leads to serious complications.

Diabetes is divided into two major categories, type 1 and type 2:

  • Type 1 is associated with complete destruction of the pancreas cells that manufacture the insulin. Type 1 patients require insulin injections for the control of blood sugar levels.
  • Type 2 patients suffer from insulin deficiency (but some is still produced). Type 2 diabetes historically started mostly after 40 years of age in overweight individuals, but today is seen even in children.

About 10% of all diabetics are type 1 and about 90% are type 2.

Useful herbs for diabetes

Herbs that can be used for diabetes usually have are hypoglycemic, which means they help to lower the level of sugar in the blood (also called blood glucose). This can be by inducing a boost of insulin production by the body.

For people suffering of type-1 diabetes are unlikely to respond to hypoglycemic herbs. This is due to the fact that the pancreas (that normally produces insulin) is not going to react and boost insulin production, because it cannot anymore.

Therefore, the following list of herbs is useful for diabetes, but only type-2 or prediabetes:

  • Pata de Vaca has hypoglycemic properties and can be useful for diabetics.
  • Burdock is known to help lower blood sugar level.
  • Fenugreek also has been found to lower blood sugar level. This seems to be due to the fact that it slows the digestion due to its fiber content, and therefore reduce the amount of sugar that goes into the blood.
  • Birch contains a specific compound called betulin, which helps reducing cholesterol level and can prevent diabetes.
