Homeopathy is a medicine that is very effective in the treatment of diabetes, as it can reduce its side effects. Homeopathy is always used in conjunction with conventional medicine – never as a substitute.
Homeopathic treatment can allow us to reduce the daily dose of the conventional medication. Of course, any diabetes treatment should be conducted under medical supervision.
Diabetes has many side effects such as complications affecting the heart, small and large blood vessels, the eye retina, the skin, the kidneys and the liver.
Diabetic foot disease can emerge, where there is a loss of sensibility that can sometimes lead to gangrene and amputation.
The diabetic patient might have high blood pressure, cholesterol, cataracts or a stroke.
