IMPORTANT BENEFITS OF INSOL-N THERAPY
INSOL-N Tablet, an oral Ayurvedic antidiabetic has undergone intensive research work. A post-graduate from Mangalore University in his research work induced diabetes or rats by injecting 'Alloxan' which destroys pancreas and subsequent administration of INSOL-N produced following results:
Another post-graduate from Mangalore University is doing Ph.D on INSOL-N. An article was published in the souvenir released during the National Seminar on the role of Indigenous drug on diabetes mellitus held at Madras under the president ship of Dr.Sam G.P. Moses, Member, WHO Panel on Diabetes.
Diabetes Mellitus has been described in ancient Ayurvedic texts under the name 'Madhumeha'. They have also explained in-detail the etiology of the disease and various herbal remedies for the same. The Ayurvedic seers were aware of the genetic susceptibility and environmental factors responsible for the disease.
According to the modern science, Diabetes Mellitus is a clinical syndrome characterised by hyperglycemia due to absolute or relative deficiency of Insulin. Lack of Insulin affects the metabolism of carbohydrate, protein, fat, water and electrolytes. If this state persists for a long time, permanent and irreversible functional and structural changes in the cells of the body occur, leading to the so-called complications of diabetes which affect the eye, the kidney and the nervous system.
Ayurveda, which advocates a holistic approach to the disease and advices the treatment in totality, plays an important role in controlling the blood sugar level at normal and preventing the complications of diabetes mellitus.
Insol-N, an Ayurvedic medicine prepared by Muniyal Ayurvedic Research Centre, and tested on thousands of patients is one such medicine to treat Diabetes Mellitus and has clinically proved itself to rejuvenate the cells of Pancreas, hence helping the patient to live a healthy normal life.
Although diabetes is a disease with a very ancient history and has been extensively studied, it’s safe and truly satisfactory treatment continues to elude us. The incidence is increasing even in hither to less affected areas like developing countries and rural populations, where the prohibitive cost of currently followed treatment cannot be sustained. As a part of community health planning strategy, the search for locally available low cost medicine is on. As mentioned earlier there exist many scattered reports of orally used hypoglycemic drugs, based on both laboratory and clinical observations, but follow up is inadequate.

Hypoglycaemic action of Insol-N
A study on 60 NIDDM patients in the age group of 30-60 years was carried out on OPD Basis to evaluate the effect of Insol-N in controlling blood sugar and urine sugar levels. Insol-N tablets were administered at a dose of 2 tablets thrice daily and a regular follow- up was done at the end of 2nd, 4th, 6th week, and thereafter at monthly intervals till 6 months.
Among the above patients, 26 patients were diagnosed for the first time and were not under any anti-diabetic medications. Of the remaining 34 patients, 24 cases were on Glibenclamide (10mg/day) and 10 cases on Phenformin (75 mg/day). Despite the above treatment their blood sugar was not under control.
All the other causes of hyperglycemia were ruled out and routine systemic examination and initial FBS & PPBS along with urine sugar were tested. Standard diabetic diet was prescribed to them and advised to continue their normal morning walk for 45 minutes.
Side Effects: No major side-effects have been observed, even with prolonged treatment.
Dosage: In NIDDM: Initially 2 tablets thrice daily followed by a maintenance of 2 tablet twice daily.
In IDDM: 2 tablets twice daily along with Insulin. When blood sugar comes to normal, the dosage should be increased to 2 tablets thrice daily, consequently trying to reduce Insulin dosage.
