  1. Sir

    im a
    n ayurvreda student..why diabetic patients need to be careful on using this?
    All ingradients in this kvatha are antidiabetic na? Pls explain..

    • Dear Devika, because many of the herbs in this Kashayam can lower blood sugar levels, in diabetic patients, it may lead to hypoglycemia. Hence, precaution is required in administering the right dose.

      • then it can be given for hyperglycemic i.e. incr.blood sugar level also rite

        • It can be given if the blood sugar level is high, but if it is taken along with other anti diabetic medicines, then that medicine along with Vasaguluchyadi kashayam can lower the blood sugar levels extremely, which may be dangerous. Hence, for diabetic persons, it is best to consult doctor before taking this medicine.
