What is Diabetes Mellitus (DM)?

Diabetes mellitus (DM), commonly referred to as diabetes, is a group of metabolic disorders in which there are high blood sugar levels over a prolonged period.

Symptoms of high blood sugar include frequent urination, increased thirst, and increased hunger.

If left untreated, diabetes can cause many complications. Acute complications can include diabetic ketoacidosis, hyperosmolar hyperglycemic state, or death.

Diabetes occurs when either your pancreas does not produce enough insulin or the cells of your body do not respond properly to the insulin produced.

Three Types of Diabetes Mellitus

Type 1 - Previously referred to as "insulin-dependent diabetes" or "juvenile diabetes", type 1 is where your body fails to produce sufficient insulin. 

Type 2 - Previously referred to as "adult-onset diabetes", type 2 is the situation where your cells do not respond properly to the insulin produced by your body. Often this occurs as a result of a poor diet or a lack of exercise.

Gestational - The third type is known as Gestational diabetes and occurs when a pregnant woman develops an elevated blood glucose level.

Essential Oil - Treatment for Diabetes

The following single oils and oil blends can be used as part of an overall plan which includes the involvement of your health care professional.
