What is Diabetes mellitus?
Diabetes mellitus (DM) is a group of heterogeneous health problems characterised by hyperglycemia (high blood glucose levels) and disturbances of carbohydrate, fat, and protein metabolism. Absolute or relative deficiencies in insulin action and insulin secretion cause it. It is an endocrine disorder with manifestations of metabolic disease.

12 homeopathy medicines for diabetes
- Uranium nitrate. This remedy is praised highly by Hughes and others in diabetes originating in dyspepsia. It has polyuria, polydipsia, and dryness of the mouth and skin. It causes sugar in the urine. Dr. Laning said that no remedy gives such universally good results; it lessens the sugar and quantity of the urine, and he recommended the 3x trituration. It is when the disease is due to assimilative derangements that uranium is the remedy, and symptoms such as defective digestion, languor, debility and much sugar in the urine, enormous appetite and thirst, yet the patient continues to emaciate.
- Syzygium jambolana is a remedy capable of diminishing the amount of sugar in the urine, mainly when used in the tincture and lower triturations, and some cases have been reported cured, but it cannot be considered a reliable drug, and use seems entirely palliative
- Phosphoric acid corresponds to diabetes of nervous origin. The urine is increased, perhaps milky in colour and containing much sugar. It suits cases due to grief, worriment and anxiety, those who are indifferent and apathetic, poor in mental a.
physical force. It is unquestionably curative of diabetes mellitus in the early stages, great debility and bruised feeling in the muscles. There will be loss of appetite, sometimes unquenchable thirst, and perhaps the patient will be troubled with boils. When patients pass large quantities of pale colourless urine or where there is much phosphatic deposit in the urine, it is the remedy. It thus may be a remedy in the form known as diabetes insipidus. Hering considered Plumbum one of the most essential treatments in diabetes mellitus.
- Causticuni, Scilla and Strophanthus may be of use in diabetes insipidus. Lycopodium cured a case in a weary, wretch patient; emaciated, increased appetite and great thirst; pale, profuse urine—eight quarts in 24 hours.
- Phosphorus. Beneficial in diabetes and pancreatic diseases, especially those of tuberculosis or gouty diathesis. The pancreatic involvement will call attention to Phosphorus. Natrum sulphuric uni corresponds to the hydrogenated constitution, with dry mouth and throat, and Arsenicuui should be studied in diabetic gangrene, thirst and emaciation. Sudden and extreme dryness of the mouth and marked physical restlessness are also guiding symptoms of this remedy, especially with a dark, watery stool. Dr. P. Jousset reports positive success where the mouth is dry, frequent, abundant urination and tendency to skin eruption.
- Lactic acid. It is an exceedingly good remedy in the gastro-hepatic variety of diabetes, and good results often follow its use. It has a fine clinical record. The symptoms are urinating copiously and freely, urine light yellow and saccharine, thirst, nausea, debility, voracious appetite and costive bowels: dry skin, dry tongue, gastralgia.
- Acetic acid is also a valuable diabetic remedy, passing large quantities of pale urine, intense thirst, hot, dry skin and marked debility.
- Bryonia. It should not be neglected in this disease. No remedy has dryness of the lips as a symptom of hepatic disorder more marked than Bryonia, and this is often one of the first symptoms of diabetes. There is a persistent bitter taste; the patient is languid, morose and gloomy; thirst may not be extreme or the appetite voracious; the patient may lose strength and inability to eat.
- Podophyllum has a bitter taste, but the tongue is flabby. It may be of use in the disease.
