In Ayurveda diabetes is described as one of the Prameha diseases which means excessive secretion of diseased urine, and the general causes of Prameha can be long periods of physical inactivity, sleeping for long hours, laziness, freshly harvested cereals, alcoholic drinks, and excess use of food that increase Kapha like dairy products, aquatic animals, sugar preparations etc., which are heavy to digest in general. Prameha is classified in two types:
- Sahaja prameha/ beeja dosha – The patients with Prameha since birth or born to the parents suffering with this disease.
- Apathya nimitaja prameha –The patients with bad eating habits, lifestyles which lead to aggravation of doshas, suffer from this type of Prameha.
