What is Diabetes?
Diabetes is a disease that occurs when your blood glucose, also called blood sugar, is too high. Blood glucose is your main source of energy and comes from the food you eat. Insulin, a hormone made by the pancreas, helps glucose from food get into your cells to be used for energy.
Diabetes mellitus was well known to the ancient founders of Ayurveda, as judged from the detailed descriptions of the disease in the classic texts like Charaka –Samhita, Sushruta-Samhita and Bhrigu-Samhita etc. (Satyavati, 1989 and Dhanukar, 2000). It means, ‘Madhumeha’ is a disease in which a patient passes sweet urine and exhibits sweetness all over the body i.e. in sweat, mucus, breath, blood etc.
(Ashtang Hridayam, 2000 and Subbalakshmi, 2001). Diabetes mellitus (DM) is described in Ayurveda as madhumeha kshaudrameha which literally means “excessive urine with sweet taste like honey,” or dhatupak janya vikriti which means a disease caused by a defective metabolism leading to derangement in body tissue (seven dhatus) transformation process (Subbalakshmi,2001; and Dwivedi 2007).

Herbs are commonly used for treatment in Ayurveda. Indian healthcare consists of various systems of medicines and ayurveda still remains dominant compared to modern medicine, particularly for treatment of a variety of chronic disease conditions. Considerable research on pharmacognosy, chemistry, pharmacology and clinical therapeutics has been carried out on ayurvedic medicinal plants (Patwardhan, 2004). The Ayurvedic Pharmacopoeia of India is especially rich in herbal treatments for diabetes (Ayurvedic Pharmacopoeia of India, 2008). Ethnobotanical studies of traditional herbal remedies used for diabetes around the world, have identified more than 1,200 species of plants with hypoglycemic activity although only a few of them have been scientifically studied (Ajgaonkar, 1979; Yoshiharu, 1994; Alarcon, 2000; WHO, 2005 and
Vaidya, 1979). Medicinal plants used to treat hypoglycemic or hyperglycemic conditions are of considerable interest for ethno-botanical community as they are recognized to contain valuable medicinal properties in different parts of the plant and a number of plants have shown a varying degree of hypoglycemic and antihyperglycemic activity.
