In brief: Lifestyle medicine
When used as a whole-system form of medicine, ayurvedic medicine takes into account lifestyle factors such as diet and exercise, stress level, and relationships and addresses the person as a whole.
Used in this way, the combination with possible herbal supplements may be helpful for managing blood sugar in diabetes. It is very important to not only treat the disease, but the person with it.

Yes, but type I diabetes will still need insulin.Regardless, don't stop monitoring your blood sugars

In brief: Healthy lifestyle
For type ii diabetes (adult onset, usually not requiring insulin), diet, exercise, stress reduction, and other holistic approaches to lifestyle can be effective methods of controlling blood sugars.
Be sure to keep monitoring your blood sugar to see the benefits of improvements in lifestyle, and work with your doctor to adjust your treatment as you improve.
