" I was diagnosied for diabetes on July 15th 2005 .
from that day till july 21st I was extremely worried and then after lot of search on the net and I was confused what to do whether to take english medicine or ayurvedic. I had many sleepless nights . I thought so much, finally I got your website and sent an email and reply came from Ayurvedic Cure Doctor whom I will remember for my life .
He suggested me taking Diabeta twice daily. All worries stopped slowly. My initial blood glucose was 350. I was taking metformin thrice daily for about 15 days. Glucose was at 200 - 240. I had blurred vision for few days. Got eye check up . All was normal except for light allergy. Then I started taking diabeta from august and within a week my glucose was at 90 - 120 always from that day it has always been below 120. I walk an hour daily almost everyday. So thats my story.
I definately want to give my feed back on your website .
Thanks once again for your time .

Gestational diabetes is any type of diabetes that appears during pregnancy. Towards the end of a pregnancy (usually the third trimester), a woman may have higher than normal levels of glucose in her bloodstream.In 95 percent of the cases, the diabetes disappears after childbirth. For about 5% of the women, the diabetes remains after childbirth. Once a woman has had gestational diabetes, she's at risk for developing another form of diabetes (usually type II) later in life.
Diabeta is a combination of effective anti-diabetics fortified with potent immunomodulators, antihyperlipidemics, anti-stress and hepatoprotectives of total plant origin. The formulation of Diabeta is based on ancient ayurvedic references, further corroborated through modern research and clinical trials at major medical institutes. More..
The blood sugar lowering action of the fresh juice or extract of the unripe fruit has been clearly established in both experimental and clinical studies. Bitter melon is composed of several compounds with confirmed anti-diabetic properties. Charantin, extracted by alcohol, is a hypoglycaemic agent composed of mixed steroids that is more potent than the drug tolbutamide which is often used in the treatment of diabetes. Momordica also contains an insulin-like polypeptide, polypeptide-P, which lowers blood sugar levels when injected subcutaneously into type 1 diabetic patients. The oral administration of 50-60 ml of the juice has shown good results in clinical trials. More..
Shilajit has long been used for the prevention and treatment of diabeties in Ayervedic medicine. Shilajit counteracts Diabetes and regulates the blood sugar level. More..
Gymnema assists the pancreas in the production of insulin in Type 2 diabetes. Gymnema also improves the ability of insulin to lower blood sugar in both Type 1 and Type 2 diabetes. This herb can be an excellent substitute for oral blood sugar-lowering drugs in Type 2 diabetes. Some people take 500 mg per day of gymnema extract.
In two small studies of individuals with either type 1 or type 2 diabetes, fenugreek seed powder lowered blood glucose and improved levels of blood cholesterol and trigylcerides, among other beneficial effects. The active ingredient responsible for the antidiabetic properties of fenugreek is in the defatted portion of the seed that contains the alkaloid trogonelline, nicotinic acid and coumarin.
Onion and garlic have significant blood sugar lowering action. The principal active ingredients are believed to be allyl propyl disulphide (APDS) and diallyl disulphide oxide (allicin), although other constitutents such as flavonoids may play a role as well. Onion extract was found to reduce blood sugar levels during oral and intravenous glucose tolerance. The effect improved as the dosage was increased; however, beneficial effects were observed even for low levels that used in the diet (eg., 25 to 200 grams). The effects were similar in both raw and boiled onion extracts.
At present the best way to prevent diabetes is to have a healthy lifestyle
- eat meals regularly during the day;
- eat foods that are low in fat and salt;
- eat lots of fruit, vegetables and pulses such as beans, lentils, and peas; and
- cut down on sugar and have reduced sugar foods and drinks instead of chocolate, cakes and sugary drinks.
A healthy diet needs to be combined with regular exercise to help the weight stay off.
People with type 2 diabetes who exercise regularly have been shown to lose weight and gain better control over their blood pressure, thereby reducing their risk for cardiovascular disease (a major complication of diabetes). Studies have also shown that people with type 1 diabetes who regularly exercise reduce their need for insulin injections.
Learn to test your blood glucose. Ask your doctor about the best testing tools for you and how often to test. After you test your blood glucose, write down your blood glucose test results. Then ask your doctor teacher if your diabetes medicines are working. A good blood glucose reading before meals is between 70 and 140 mg/dL.
Ask your doctor about how low or how high your blood glucose should get before you take action. For many people, blood glucose is too low below 70 mg/dL and too high above 240 mg/dL.
One other number to know is the result of a blood test your doctor does called the A1C. It shows your blood glucose control during the past 2 to 3 months. For most people, the target for A1C is less than 7 percent.
It is very important to control stress. Avoid fatigue, and emotional upsets. Stresses create anxiety that send damaging hormones racing through your system. Exercise can be used to control stress. Exercise is one of the most effective ways to prevent diabetes and controlling blood sugar levels.
