Diabetes Mellitus  is a common metabolic and nutritional disorder caused due to high levels of sugar in the blood and urine. Insufficient production of insulin, a hormone secreted by pancreas, increases blood sugar levels, or when the body cells do not respond effectively to insulin. When this imbalance is not corrected, it can lead to heart problems, kidney disease, vision impairment and other problems.

Causes  Heredity, obesity, stress, unhealthy eating habits.

Symptoms Lethargy, fatigue, frequent urination, weight loss, craving for sweets, excessive thirst, increased hunger, blurred vision, slow healing of wounds, increased susceptibility to infections, numbness in hands and feet.

Asanas and Pranayama massage the abdomen, increase the gastric fire, burn the excess sugar, regulate the functions of liver and pancreas. They provide permanent relief.

I suggest a few asanas for your practice.  Duration   Practice for  1 to 3 minutes
