What is Prameha?

  • Acharya Vagbhatta describes Prameha as frequent and copious urine with turbidity; i.e.Prabhutavil Mutrata.
  • Madhumeha is a clinical entity in which patient passes a large quantity of urine similar to Madhu having kashaya & Madhura taste, Ruksha texture & Honey like the color and thus body attains sweetness.

What is DM?

  • Diabetes mellitus is a group of metabolic disease characterized by hyperglycemia resulting from defects in insulin secretion, insulin action or both. The chronic hyperglycemia of diabetes is associated with long-term damage, dysfunction, and failure of various organs, especially the eyes, kidneys, nerves, heart, and blood vessels.

Classification of DM

 

  1. Type 1 diabetes (beta -cell destruction, usually leading to absolute insulin deficiency.)
  2. Immune-mediated.
  3. Idiopathic
  4. Type 2 diabetes (may range from predominantly insulin resistance with relative insulin deficiency to a predominantly secretory defect with insulin resistance.
  5. Other specific Types:

 


CRITERIA FOR DIAGNOSIS

 

The revised criteria for diagnosis according to American Diabetes association is as under

(1)Symptoms of diabetes plus casual plasma glucose concentration >200 mg/dl (11.1 mmol/l), Casual is defined as any time of day without regard to time since last meal.

Or

(2) F PG >126 mg/dl (7.0 mmol/l). Fasting is defined as no caloric intake for at least 8hrs.

Or

(3) 2-h PG>200 mg/dl or (11.1 mmol/l) during an OGTT. The test should be performed using a glucose load containing the equivalent 75g anhydrous glucose dissolved in water.


 

INVESTIGATIONS:

 

  • Blood Glucose Tests:
  •   Fasting
  •   Postprandial
  •   Tolerance Tests
  •   HbA1c
  • Urine Glucose Tests
  • Insulin Tests
  •   S.Insulin
  •   Insulin Sensitivity Test
  • Other complimentary Tests :
  •   Glycated Serum Protein (GSP)
  •   S.Fructosamine
  •   C.peptide


AETIOPATHOGENESIS: TYPE 2 DIABETES MELLITUS

 

  • Genetic Factors
  • Mitochondrial mutations
  • Insulin gene
  • Insulin receptors
  • Clinical phenotypes
  • Metabolic abnormalities – Insulin resistance
  • Impaired Insulin Secretion
  • Increased Hepatic Glucose Production
  • Obesity
  • Elevated Serum Ferritin Concentrations
  • Endothelial dysfunction
  • Environmental Factors
