Carefully planning meals is a simple and effective strategy for management of various aspects of diabetes. Knowing the best food for someone with diabetes can help promote good health. In Ayurveda, diabetes mellitus is known as Madhumeha and there are two ways it manifests: excess Vata Dosha and subsequent tissue depletion (dhatukshya) is one way diabetes develops. Obstruction of the channels (srotas) because of excess Kapha Dosha and fatty tissue (Kapha Meda Avarana) is another cause of diabetes.
Both of these causes increase Vata dosha which may manifest over time as diabetes mellitus. What can you do? What should you eat?
