Constitutional homeopathic treatment for diabetes is recommended in support of conventional measures, and is compatible with them. Prescription depends upon specific symptoms (see page 18), but certain remedies have an affinity with the metabolic system. Phosphoric ac. is effective when emotional stress has played a part in the onset of diabetes. Silica is prescribed for diabetes that has arisen from infection; while Tarentula is used for diabetes linked to anxiety or grief. Argentum nit., Lycopodium, Phosphorus, Plumbum met., Theridion, and Uranium nit. are other constitutional remedies often used in the treatment of diabetes.
Remedies for acute symptoms include Phosphoric ac, when diabetes is worse for nervous exhaustion; Uranium nit. for digestive upset, great weight loss, weakness, and incontinence; Argentum nit., when the usual symptoms of diabetes are accompanied by swollen ankles and there is apprehension; and Silica, when the person complains of cold, sweaty, smelly feet, and a lack of stamina.

Diabetes is a disease that affects the way your body uses food. Normally, your body converts sugars, starches and other foods into a form of sugar called glucose. Your body uses glucose for fuel. The cells receive the glucose through the bloodstream. They then use insulin a hormone made by the pancreas to absorb the glucose, convert it into energy, and either use it or store it for later use.
