It is classified into two types :

  • Sahaja Prameha – These are patients with prameha since birth or born to parents suffering with this disease.
  • Apathya Nimitaja Prameha– This is manifested in patients with bad eating habits and lifestyle leading to aggravation of your doshas (one of the 3 substances in a person’s body- Vata, Pitta and Kapha).

Enjoying sedentary lifestyle habits, excessive sleep, excessive use of milk preparations, drinks containing alcohol, and excessive meat are all Kapha aggravating factors and are responsible for causing Prameha (diabetes).


The above-mentioned causative factors or hetu further aggravate kapha, which impairs the quality of meda (fat), mamsa (muscle tissue) and kleda (liquid dhatus).

These factors then transform into urine, while kapha obstructs urinary channels.

Excessive intake of cold and pungent things, staying up late at night, stress and anxiety, and suppression of urges for urine are also aggravating factors.

Aggravated vata dosha draws muscle fat, lymph and ojas to the channels carrying urine. Excretion of ojas through the urinary bladder is known as Madhumeha (Diabetes mellitus) in Ayurveda.
