What causes diabetes?

First of all we should know what diabetes is and what causes diabetes.

Diabetes mellitus is a group of metabolic diseases characterized by high blood sugar (glucose) levels that result from defects in insulin secretion, or its action, or both.

Insulin is a hormone that is produced by specialized cells (beta cells) of the pancreas. The Pancreas is a deep-seated organ in the abdomen located behind the stomach. In addition to helping glucose enter the cells, insulin is also important in tightly regulating the level of glucose in the blood.

Glucose is a simple sugar found in food. Glucose is an essential nutrient that provides energy for the proper functioning of the body cells. Carbohydrates are broken down in the small intestine and the glucose in digested food is then absorbed by the intestinal cells into the bloodstream, and is carried by the bloodstream to all the cells in the body where it is utilized. However, glucose cannot enter the cells alone and needs insulin to aid in its transport into the cells. Without insulin, the cells become starved of glucose energy despite the presence of abundant glucose in the bloodstream. In certain types of diabetes, the cells’ inability to utilize glucose gives rise to the ironic situation of "starvation in the midst of plenty". The abundant, unutilized glucose is wastefully excreted in the urine.

Normally, blood glucose levels are tightly controlled by insulin, a hormone produced by the pancreas. Insulin lowers the blood glucose level. When the blood glucose elevates (for example, after eating food), insulin is released from the pancreas to normalize the glucose level. In patients with diabetes, the absence or insufficient production of insulin causes hyperglycaemia. (Hyperglycaemia, when the bodies blood sugar is higher than the normal range.)

What is Pancreas?

A spongy, tube-shaped organ that is about 6 inches long and is located in the back of the abdomen, behind the stomach. The head of the pancreas is on the right side of the abdomen. It is connected to the upper end of the small intestine. The narrow end of the pancreas, called the tail, extends to the left side of the body. The pancreas makes pancreatic juices and hormones, including insulin and secretin. Pancreatic juices contain enzymes that help digest food in the small intestine. Both pancreatic enzymes and hormones are needed to keep the body working correctly. As pancreatic juices are made, they flow into the main pancreatic duct, which joins to the common bile duct, which connects the pancreas to the liver and the gallbladder and carries bile to the small intestine near the stomach.

Insufficient production of insulin by the pancreas (either absolutely or relative to the body’s needs), production of defective insulin (which is uncommon), or the inability of cells to use insulin properly and efficiently leads to hyperglycaemia and diabetes.

Findings:

  1. Diabetes mellitus is a group of metabolic diseases.
  2. Insufficient production of insulin by the pancreas.
  3. Insulin is a hormone.

Astrologically metabolism is matter of 5th and 6th house. 5th house signifies stomach, pancreas, spleen and liver. 6th house signifies indigestion, liver diseases. Diabetes is indigestion of Carbohydrates.

Astrologically significator of 5th house is Jupiter. Jupiter rules over liver and pancreas. It regulates sugars, lipids, the liver, and the gall-bladder. So, there is strong reason to blame Jupiter for bad metabolic system. While searching reasons of diabetes, we should take in consideration Jupiter, Sagittarius, Pisces, Leo signs; 5th, 6th and 8th houses. A malefic Jupiter in 5th, 6th and 8th house can give this disorder.
