Ayurvedic diagnosis of Prameha
What is Prameha
There is a lot of similarity between diabetes mellitus and ayurvedic conditions such as the Prameha. In Indian traditional medicine system known as Ayurveda, there is a wealth of knowledge available regarding the treatment of diabetes. Prameha is a term that refers to a condition in which the body excretes more urine than usual.
Diabetes, regardless of its type, is characterized by the same pathophysiology: glucose intolerance, insulin resistance (i.e., the impaired response time of body tissues to insulin via the insulin receptor), and disruption of cell signaling as a result of a disrupted insulin pathway.
Samprapti or Pathogenesis
In general, our bodies have their own ways of dealing with Kleda or body fluids by excreting them via sweat or urine as a means of eliminating them. It is believed that urine is used to eliminate excess fluid/moisture, whereas sweat is used to retain it. In contrast, diabetic patients will not sweat due to their sedentary lifestyle and poor eating habits as a result of their sedentary lifestyle and poor eating habits. It is therefore clear that the kleda (fluid) will flow into the urinary system and will cause an increased amount of urine to be produced, resulting in excessive urination, ultimately leading to Prameha (constrictions in the urinary tract).
There are a few signs and symptoms present at this stage of the disease that are known as Poorva-roopa (premonitory symptoms), including impurities accumulating on the teeth (though this is after they have been cleaned), burning palms and soles, and so on.
It is important to note that if the condition is not treated properly at this stage, it will result in an increase in fatty tissue and a loss of the firmness of the skin. It is known that Kaphaja Prameha, which is the most common form of Kaphaja Prameha, occurs when there are more Kapha aggravating factors. There are similar aggravating factors associated with Pitta and Vata, which are responsible for the development of the respective Prameha types.
As a general rule, the Ayurvedic diagnosis of Prameha is based on the results of a patient’s urine examination. Depending on the nature of the urine, Kaphaja Prameha can be classified into ten types, Pittaja Prameha into six types, and Vataja Prameha into four types.
