Maintaining homeostasis of blood glucose levels is a complex process involving the release and use of insulin to carry glucose out of the blood stream and into cells. Imbalance and disease occur when the pancreas is unable to produce enough insulin to support the movement of glucose from the blood to the cells, when the body builds up a resistance to insulin, or when the cell receptor sites become blocked and no longer allow glucose to pass through. Hypoglycemia, madhu meha (type 6 diabetes mellitus) and iksu meha (type 7 diabetes mellitus) are conditions associated with the imbalance of blood glucose levels.
