Turmeric: Glimmer of hope for Diabetes
Diabetes Mellitus is one of the most dreadful diseases which is haunting the modern day mankind and has been on a continuous rise. Diabetes also commonly known as “Diabetes Mellitus” is a cluster of chronic metabolic disorders which is defined by high blood glucose or blood sugar levels caused either by the inadequate insulin production from the pancreas or due to the failure of the body cells in responding properly to the insulin produced or sometimes in both cases. According to the study done by Diabetes foundation of India, about 63 million people suffer from diabetes, and this figure is likely to go up to 80 million by 2025. Delhi alone has more than 30 lakh people suffering from this disease (Indo-US collaborative study). It is not wrong to tell “Everyone is Diabetic unless proved otherwise”.
Generally Metphormin an Allopathic medicine, with the number of serious side effects, is the commonly used medicine to control the blood sugar level in diabetic patients. It affects the both the vital organ kidney and liver. Recent research studies shows, continuous use of it causes severe deficiency of Vitamin B12, which ultimately leads to cardiovascular disease and also increases the triglycerides level in the blood. On the other hand Ayurveda has an upper hand in treating and preventing Diabetes Mellitus effectively. This oldest medical science has numerous formulations in its belly which have been time tested for their efficacy and outstanding results. There are many herbs (drugs) which cure Diabetes, but Turmeric is excellent option both as a preventive and curative agent for Diabetes.
Turmeric the “Indian saffron” known to possess number of dazzling therapeutic potential including strong anti diabetic potential, Turmeric and Curcumin (active ingredient of Turmeric) are scientifically proved to be effective in preventing type-2 Diabetes and also in delaying the progression of pathology. Pre-Diabetics are a major group of people worldwide. They are the people who show Diabetic values of blood and urine in lab and are most prone to develop Diabetes, though they are not diagnosed to have active clinical Diabetes. When administered to pre-diabetics or those prone to Diabetes or to those who have a strong family history of Diabetes (as a part of prophylaxis). Turmeric has proved to halt the progression of the disease & prevents the pre-diabetics from becoming diabetics.
Turmeric's primary polyphenol curcumin is the main compound in the plant that has been researched for its blood sugar regulating properties. One particularly striking study, published in the American Diabetic Association's own journal, Diabetes Care, found turmeric extract to be 100% effective in preventing pre-diabetics from developing type 2 diabetes - a feat of prevention that no FDA approved drug for type 2 diabetes has yet come even close to accomplishing.
It regulates insulin levels as Turmeric intake promises to keep the pancreas healthy. Its anti-hyper glycemic properties help to maintain proper functioning of the pancreas regulate and balance insulin levels, prevent insulin resistance in the body. It also lowers blood sugar and triglyceride levels, thereby helping to treat diabetes effectively or prevent its onset. In Diabetic patients, the immune system goes for a toss which is why a Diabetic becomes susceptible to other health conditions like heart disease, kidney failure, poor liver function, etc. The antioxidant, antimicrobial, anti-inflammatory, and anti-hyperglycemic properties of curcumin present in turmeric, helps to strengthen the immune system and fight various infections and viruses. It also helps in weight management as obesity is a major risk factor of diabetes, accumulation of abdominal fat makes insulin production difficult. However, curcumin helps to control triglyceride and cholesterol levels in the body, improve digestion, and prevent the accumulation of harmful fats.
If we search the literature a large number of studies have been reported its anti diabetic potential all around the world .Several of these studies conclude with positive findings, leaving ellipses of expectations. Over the past few years, there has been an increasing demand for Turmeric and Curcumin, based Ayurvedic/medicinal formulations across the globe, and plays a major role in building the huge INR 8000 crore market of herbal formulations in India. It is the presence of curcumin that gives turmeric its unique therapeutic qualities. However, the bioavailability of curcumin through consumption of turmeric in food is a bare minimum. Growing demand for curcumin-based nutritional supplements on account of increasing consumer awareness regarding its anti-diabetic properties is expected to significantly expand the market over the forecast period.

Good news for Mango lover Diabetic patients
It's a common myth that you shouldn't eat certain fruits like Mango if you have Diabetes, because they're "too sweet." Some fruits do contain more sugar than others, but that doesn't mean you shouldn't eat them if you have diabetes. As per recent studies published in reputed journal The Federation of American Societies for Experimental Biology (FASEB), eating mangoes every day may control and even lower blood sugar levels, despite their natural sugar content. The American Diabetes Association also recommends mango in its list of fruits that can be eaten by diabetics. In conclusion, daily mango consumption lowers blood pressure in lean individuals, and benefits obese
individuals by maintaining long-term glucose homeostasis. Galloylderivatives from mango may possess therapeutic potential in the prevention and treatment of obesity and metabolic disorders such as diabetes. Similar kind of study also published in the same journal which is conducted by Xiaoai Zhu et al,2017 from China in which they found the inhibitory effects of avicularin i.e.-quercetin-3-O-α- arabinofuranoside , a flavonoid glycoside commonly found in mango prevents the high fat diet/ streptozotocin induced type 2 Diabetes. Famous celebrity nutritionist Rujata Diwekar also suggested that a Mango in a day keep Diabetes away.
