Diabetes is characterized by an abnormally high level of blood glucose within the urine. It results from relative lack of insulin which leads to abnormalities in carbohydrate metabolism and the metabolism of protein and fat. Ancient scholars of Ayurveda knew Diabetes Mellitus some 3000 years ago. The association of frequent urination with sweet tasting substance in the urine was first reported in Charaka Samhita, the ancient ayurvedic classic.
