You may use this Herb . But why don't you go for the supereffetive xure for Diabetes, i.e Gudmar. You may go the Disease section of this website and look for supereffective Herbs. I'm sure you are gonna find the info useful and worth reading. Pepper corns and Milkwort can be powdered in equal amounts and then taken everyday. Stinging Nettle would also help in your condition.
Good Luck.!!

Vicky. I suggest you to try Witch Hazel. It has good effects in treating Varicocele. You may buy its tincture " Hamemelis Virginiana " from a Homeopathy Shop and take it twice everyday for a month. Add 5 drops of this tincture to a glass of water for a month. I came across this website by happenstance. And I got lucky to have read about this disease here.
Thanks guys.
