With type 2 diabetes, your body either resists the effects of insulin or doesnt produce enough insulin to maintain a normal glucose level. This is mostly a lifestyle disorder; you can manage the condition by eating well, exercising and maintaining a healthy weight. If diet and exercise dont control your blood sugar, you may need medications. Ayurveda, Homeopathy and Unani offers effective diabetic medications. In mild to moderate cases, they can be alternative and in severe cases, they provide complimentary support.
Cholesterol is a waxy substance that is found in your blood. Bad or LDL cholesterol builds up in the walls of your arteries and make them hard and narrow. Decreased blood flow to the heart muscles results in a heart attack, and reduced flow to your brain causes stroke. High cholesterol can be inherited, but its often the result of unhealthy lifestyle choices.
