Diabetes mellitus, often simply referred to as diabetes—is a group of metabolic diseases in which a person has high blood sugar, either because the pancreas does not produce enough insulin (type 1 diabetes), or because cells do not respond to the insulin that is produced (type 1 diabetes). This high blood sugar produces the classical symptoms of polyuria (frequent urination), polydipsia (increased thirst) and polyphagia (increased hunger). (Wikipedia)
For this article we are concentrating on type 2 diabetes which usually develops in adulthood. The good news is that what you do can have a tremendous effect on preventing diabetes (if you are at risk of it) and if you have it already, how it progresses. Nutrition and yoga practices can help you control your blood sugar levels immensely. However, when you start a yoga practice it is important for you to have our blood sugar levels checked regularly as your blood sugar levels can drop and your insulin may need adjusting accordingly.
