Dear Sartaj
My uncle was suffering from 10 years of diabetes. Diabetes had an impact on his kidneys and eyes as well. He tried various medications and insulin injections but the relief was only temporary. Then somebody from by village in Chhattisgarh told about Gudmar. It is the best remedy for diabetes. Heat few gudmar leaves in water and drink two times a day. You will find sugar level decreasing.
Still, I will suggest discuss with your doctor before use.

Dear Anji
For Diabetes, the best herb is Gudmar. Buy its tincture from a Homeopathic Shop . It is known as Gymnema Sylvestre. Start by taking 5 drops of this tincture in a glass of water, daily. Check your sugar levels, if it does not drop considerably, increase the dose to 10 drops. Try this Herb for a month. For erectile dysfunction take Aswagandha capsules with milk, on alternate days for a month. This is very hot in nature, so be careful.
