Type I Diabetes is called as Insulin Dependent Diabetes Mellitus or Juvenile Diabetes. Diabetes mellitus is a syndrome (set of symptoms) exemplify through increased sugar level (glucose) in the blood caused by inactivity of hormone 'Insulin' that is extremely essential to monitor glucose metabolism of body. Large IDDM is an early-inception disease and is commonly seen in children though adults can also be affected by it. Diabetes is widespread worldwide and if not attended appropriately, it could lead to serious complications.
IDDM arise as a result of reduce production of hormone 'Insulin' by the pancreas (the organ to synthesizes insulin). This arises due to loss of the insulin-producing cells (beta cells of the islets of Langerhans) of the pancreas.
Auto- immunity (disturbance of immune system where body's defense mechanism starts attacking body's individual organs and tissues) has been strongly recommended as a causal factor in the start of Type I Diabetes. Genetic factors can also have a role to play in this modification of the immunity. Type 1 diabetes also emerges to be triggered by some viral infections or less possible stress-related or environmental factors (such as exposure to certain chemicals).
The classical arpeggio of diabetes symptoms is polydipsia (increased thirst) and polyphagia (excessive hunger/appetite), polyuria (frequent urination). These symptoms may increase quite fast in children. There could also be weight loss and excessive fatigue.
In case of Insulin Dependent Type I diabetes, the role of homeopathy is restricted to controlling the problem of diabetes such as nephropathy, diabetic neuropathy etc. Homeopathy does not have medicines that can stimulate the pancreas to secrete insulin in cases of Type I diabetes.
