About 50% of people who are diagnosed with diabetes do not exhibit any symptoms, so the medical condition is missed. And continuous lifestyle changes—munching unhealthy snacks throughout the day—and physical inactivity increase the risks of diabetes and weight gain.

Also, medical treatment for diabetes seems out of reach. So, here are the early signs of diabetes and ayurvedic tips to prevent it without any side effects.

Early signs of diabetes include frequent urination, terrible thirst, extreme hunger despite eating, losing weight even after eating more, severe tiredness, unclear vision, slow-healing cuts and bruises, a dry mouth, itchy skin, or hands or feet tingling, hurting, or numbness.

Ayurvedic tips to prevent sugar

  • As part of your dincharya (daily routine), incorporate ritucharya (a seasonal regimen). Eat seasonal fruits and vegetables, as they help keep your blood sugar levels stable.

  • Embrace Nidana Parivarjana, which refers to avoiding "too much" sweet fruit like mango, banana, grapes, fried foods, and dairy products.

  • Indulge in diabetic-friendly foods such as kiwi, jamun, strawberry, peaches, apples, pomegranate, drumsticks, garlic, and green vegetables, which have lower sugar levels as compared to other fruits. Sour fruits like amla and lemon and bitter vegetables like karela must be consumed often.

  • If you crave some snacks, munch on Chana (Bengal gram), as it keeps sugar under control. Increase your consumption of mudga (green grain), wheat, and barley for lunch and dinner with a variety of healthy variations.

  • To burn calories, engage in daily exercise routines, carve yourself some me-time, and go swimming or brisk walking. Regular practice of yoga asanas such as Tdasana, Katichakrasana, Gomukhasana, Shalabhasana, Vakrasana, Kunjala, Bhramari, and Surya Bhedana pranayama is required.

Diabetes difficulties are less likely to develop with early diagnosis, treatment, and care.
