Mudra therapy for diabetes

Diabetes mellitus, often referred to simply as diabetes—is a condition in which the body
either does not produce enough, or does not properly respond to, insulin, a hormone
produced in the pancreas. Insulin enables cells to absorb glucose in order to turn it into
energy. In diabetes, the body either fails to properly respond to its own insulin or does not
make enough insulin, or both. This causes glucose to accumulate in the blood, often
leading to various complications
The normal fasting blood sugar level is 80 to 120 mg per 100 ml of blood. Anything above
these norms can be considered to be a diabetic condition. When diabetes occurs in
childhood it is known as Juvenile diabetes. Diabetes found in middle-aged people is known
as Maturity onset diabetes. Diabetes is classified into Insulin Dependent Diabetes Mellitus
(IDDM) or type I; and Non Insulin Dependent Diabetes Mellitus (NIDDM) or type II diabetes.
Causes:
# Since cause is not the infection due to any germ or virus, diabetes is also known
asgermless disorder.
# However, most commonly understood causes are heredity, obesity, mental and
emotional stress and strain, prolonged anxiety and conflict, sedentary lifestyle, lack of
exercise and wrong food habits.
