This book by Dr Kamal Kansal is an informative book on Diabetes Mellitus,
which is a disease of the busy, stressful and short of time modern lifestyle. In-
spite of the best efforts from the world of medicine, this disease is still baffling
the physicians. Heart diseases, diabetic retinopathy, gangrene and sudden
death are some of the serious results of this disease. This book discusses
about diabetes and provides some basic facts about the nature of the illness
along with its effective homeopathic treatment. Other features include
Dr Kamal Kansal did his graduation from NHMC, Delhi and received medal
from Board of Homoeopathic System of Medicine, Delhi and Dr. Kaura Lal
Ram Krishan Sachdeva Memorial Award for good academic performance.
He is the founder of the Homoeopathic Education Forum and Editor of the
‘Homoeopathic Up-date.’ He has written various articles and has enriched the
homeopathic literature by his monumental work. In the recognition of his
literary contribution and dedication to homeopathy, he has been awarded
B. Jain International Award (Gold Medal!) in Homeopathy for the year 1993
and a 'Special Award' for the year 1994.
Indian diabetics have found great difficulty in
getting an informative book on this subject. Although
foreign books are available they do not help them much
especially when it comes to select their diet. Their
persistent demand had prompted me to write this booklet.
The doctors may find it interesting and may especially
be benefited while planning diet for their patients.
The aim of this booklet is to give the diabetic
patients some basic facts about the nature of their illness.
This information will enable them to co-operate with
their doctor in controlling the disease and to understand
why certain do’s and dont’s are important to their health.
Imparting this type of basic information to the
patient should be regarded by the physicians a part of
the treatment, but it is seldom done because of one or
the other reason. The booklet is written to instruct the
patient, that it is not only the diet or exercise alone that
can control diabetes, but that he should take proper
medication and timely instructions from the attending
physicians so as to adequately control his disease.
Although complete cure of diabetes is not often
possible, yet a lot can be done to relieve the suffering of
the patient and keep the disease under control.
Knowledge of the disease and determination on the part
of the patient to follow treatment can work wonders.
The diet of the patient plays an important part to
control the disease. It has been considered desirable,
therefore, to include in this booklet, food charts for the
vegetarian as well as the non-vegetarian (Indian diets).
These charts would show that a diabetic need not
be afraid of visiting a restaurant provided, he knows what
to avoid and what to choose for a full balanced as well
as palatable diet.
I am sincerely grateful to Dr. Harshwardhan (M.D.)
for sparing his precious time to edit this booklet and for
his valuable suggestions.
