Diabetes mellitus (generally: diabetes) is one of the metabolic diseases. Patients suffering from diabetes have an increased excretion of sugar in the urine. The reason for this is a disrupted insulin production in the pancreas.
A distinction is made between type 1 diabetes, in which the pancreas produces too little insulin – usually genetically or as a result of an autoimmune disease – and type 2 diabetes, in which insulin resistance is acquired over the course of life. This type of diabetes is also known as “adult diabetes” and is considered a component of the “metabolic syndrome”.
It is not possible to treat diabetes with homeopathy alone. However, homeopathic remedies can be used very well alongside medical therapy.
