    • Dear Preeti,
      I do not recommend it for bed-wetting in children. Bed wetting is quite normal in kids, even up to age of 8 – 10. Proper education, relieving fear, encouraging them to visit bath room at bed time, limiting liquid intake 3 hours before bed time. are a few ways to relieve bed wetting. Please consult an Ayurveda doctor if problems persist even after one month of trying these techniques.

    • Dear Das, you can surely include some Ayurvedic medicine for diabetes like hyponidd etc. but you have to consult an Ayurveda doctor for the right dosage fixing. At least for first 4 – 6 weeks, regular sugar level monitoring. Please note that, even with Ayurvedic medicines for diabetes, you might not be able to completely get rid of insulin therapy. But a very good sugar control can be established with Ayurvedic medicine, along with insulin therapy.

  16. I have been suffering from gradual increase in Creatinine for the last 3 years. It is presently 1.40. A mild increase in renal cortical echos was noticed 3 years back.
