   Neem and Diabetes

Diabetes is an incurable, chronic metabolic disorder that develops when the pancreas can no longer produce sufficient insulin. Blood sugar levels rapidly elevate yet the body is unable to use the energy contained in the sugar leading to weakness and eventually unconsciousness. Diabetes is the leading cause of blindness in people ages 25 to 74, damages nerves, kidneys, the heart and blood vessels and may result in the amputation of limbs.

Neem leaf is a traditional herb for treating diabetes and has been scientifically proven effective in treating and preventing diabetes. Oral doses of neem leaf extract significantly reduced insulin requirements for non-insulin dependent diabetes. Neem oil has also proven effective and has been able to inhibit increases in blood sugar levels by as much as 45% in test animals.

Neem leaf extract have been shown to reduce insulin requirements of diabetics without apparent effect on blood glucose levels. Different studies show insulin requirement reductions of between 20% and 50% for those who take five grams of dried neem leaf capsules. There are even anecdotal reports of diabetics chewing a single neem leaf daily that have been able to eliminate insulin injections completely.

Based on the many studies of neem's effects on insulin requirements, the Indian government has approved the sale by pharmaceutical companies of neem tablets for diabetics (Some of these preparations are really nothing more than powdered neem leaves).

After determining an individual's tolerance to neem, the typical treatment for diabetes using neem leaf is one neem leaf capsule in the morning on an empty stomach and one after diner.
