Hyperglycemia and Hypoglycemia- Cause & Cure
Both Hyperglycemia and Hypoglycemia is caused by issues in Pancreas. Astrological ruler of Pancreas is Virgo. If mercury and virgo sign is severely afflicted in the horoscope of a native, he/she suffers from the discussed diseases.
Pancreas are situated behind the stomach. Main function of pancreas is to release enzymes when food enters the body. These enzymes breakdown the food into nutrients which are absorbed by the body for different use.
Also pancreas produces insulin which helps in the breakdown of glucose. Other cells of the pancreas secrete glucagon, which helps in the breakdown of sugar in the liver. Whatever type of activity person is involved in, glucagon is released. Glucagon helps in the protein and lipid metabolisms, also it helps kidneys to excrete inorganic substances like calcium, phosphorus, sodium and potassium.
Hyperglycemia - It is also known as diabetes. In our daily life, we eat a lot of food products which has a lot of sugar content in it. Insulin is produced by pancreas in the body for the breakdown of sugar. If body is insulin deficient sugar will not be absorbed properly in the body which creates a lot of imbalances in body. As i have discussed in my earlier post, excess secretion of cortisol hormone by adrenal glands causes Cushing's disease, which is also one of the causes of diabetes. Any type of tumor within the pancreas will affect the production of insulin. Acute or chronic pancreatic insufficiency causes hyperglycemia. Natives on various medications or steroids develop this disease as well. Stress is one of the other reasons of hyperglycemia. In this ailment, person drinks a lot of water with increase in hunger too. Other symptoms are frequent headaches, loss of weight, fatigue, vomiting, breathing problems.
Hypoglycemia - When a person consumes excessive amount of sugar, large amount of insulin too is secreted regardless of of whether or not glucose level rises in the body. Addison's disease, as i have discussed in my earlier posts may result in Hypoglycemia, where there is dis-functioning of hormones secreted by adrenal glands. Symptoms are person may feel really tired after few hours of having a meal due to decrease in sugar levels in the body. Body may shake, person may faint and become nervous, some also feel depressed.
To reduce the risks of Hyperglycemia and Hypoglycemia, one must include sulfur rich foods in their diet. Juice therapy can also be included to treat diabetes. But juices should be home made not packaged/canned/processed ones. Pineapple juice, cabbage juice, radish juice (can be eaten raw as well) are very beneficial. Vitamin B rich foods are also of great help in healing the pancreas as well as adrenal glands.
