Ayurvedic Treatment of Diabetic KetoAcidosis with Herbal Remedies

Are you suffering from Diabetes?
Do you miss your insulin doses frequently?
Have you ever worried about the Diabetic complications?
Does the issue of fruity-scented breath ever bother you? Then you should be aware of DKA.


The first question to arise in your head would be what DKA is. DKA or Diabetic KetoAcidosis is one of the complications of Diabetes that cause serious consequences. It occurs when our body produces high levels of ketones. It happens when insulin is decreased in your body. Now you may ponder about the role Insulin plays. Insulin is a hormone that controls blood glucose levels. Insulin helps glucose to get into tissues and cells. When there is a significant drop in insulin, cells cannot get enough glucose. This leads to utilizing fat and producing ketones and acids in excess. This is DKA.

Diabetic KetoAcidosis


  • It is a complication of Diabetes. So one of the main causes is missing insulin doses. You have to be alert about your insulin doses
  • Physical or emotional trauma could lead to  DKA
  • It is seen in case of diseases like Pancreatitis
  • In pregnancy, there is a 1- 2% chance for DKA
  • Usage of alcohol, drug cocaine etc cause DKA

You can prevent DKA by being aware and following the mentioned methods :

  • Blood sugar levels and ketone levels should be checked regularly
  • Control the insulin dosage accordingly
  • Take water sufficiently

  • Exercise


  • Insulin taken through IV injections will help you manage blood sugar levels. It is the main way of treatment in modern medicine.
  • Fluids and electrolyte displacement are also done as a treatment.
  • Antibiotics are also a part of the treatment in case of infection


Ayurveda treatment is, in general, formulated based on the principle of tridoshas (imbalance of any of these 3 humors in our body are believed to be causing diseases). Even Though Prameha or diabetes is a tridosha vyadhi (caused by three doshas), it is mainly said to be a Kapha predominant illness. So to act towards this disease, we have to pacify the aggravated dosha first. (here mainly Kapha). Sedentary activities like sitting in your cushion for a long time, sleeping for a long period and use of sugar products in excess will increase Kapha dosha and trigger the genesis of Diabetes. The increased Kapha vitiates the medas (fat), mamsa (muscle) and kleda (body fluids), draws them to the urinary bladder and produces Prameha. The principal line of Ayurveda treatment involves nidana parvarjana or avoiding causative factors. Therefore you definitely should keep your sedentary mode of life away and make your life more fruitful with ayurvedic treatment.
