Diabetes was not an old disease and no one was diabeticMembers,
I am a diabetic. When I wanted to know some old native medicines available for cure, I refered a very old Tamil Book on Medicines "Anubogavythia (Brahma Rahasiam) published in the year 1913. It contains 8 chapters. The cost of the publication printed is Just Rs. 3/- only. The copy was bought by my great grand father and was preserved by my father, and is now with me.
I referred all the eight chapters of that book and I could not find a single word about diabetes or blood sugar or anything pertaining to diabetics.
Does it mean that there was no disease like diabetes earlier and it is the new disease that got introduced in the last century or few decades ago?
