Diabetes is a long-term health condition that affects the body’s ability to convert food into energy either due to insulin deficiency or insulin resistance. Insulin is a hormone that brings high blood glucose levels back to normal levels.
When blood sugar level reaches around 250 mg/dL or 13.9 mmol/L, the body won’t be able to get enough energy from glucose. To overcome this, the body tries to burn fat leading to diabetic ketoacidosis.
Vomiting or feeling nauseous, sweet-smelling breath, confusion, shortness of breath, dry mouth, and abdomen pain are the symptoms of ketoacidosis.
Here are some home remedies to get your blood sugar levels back into a safe zone.
– Neem leaves are an effective remedy for treating diabetes as they are loaded with flavonoids, triterpenoid, anti-viral compounds, and glycosides, which may help manage blood sugar levels. Take some dried neem leaves and grind them in a blender until smooth to make neem powder. Consume this powder twice daily for optimum benefits.
