अस्यासुखं स्वपनसुखं दधीनि ग्राम्यौदकानूपरसा: पयासि।नवान्नपानं गुडवैकृतं च प्रमेह हेतु: कफ कृ ंच सर्वम। (च। चि ६ /४)

The basic causes seen in a diabetic patient are sleeping a lot, feeling of lethargy every time, eating food items that will increase Kapha dosha in the body like curd, the meat of animals, birds, jaggery, sweets, sugar, kheer, rice etc. These things give birth to diabetes.

कफ: सपित्त: पवनश्च दोषा मेदो अस्त्र शुक्र ाम्बु वसा लसीका:
मज्जा रसौज: पिशितं च दुष्या: प्रमेहिण ां, विंशति रेव मेहा: (च। चि ६ /८) 

In Prameha (Kapha, Pitta, and Vata) these three doshas, (meda, rakta, shukra, ambu, vasa, lasika, majja, rasa, oja, and mansa) these 10 dushyas. All these in combination are the reasons for twenty types of Prameha (Diabetes).

स्वेदो अंगगन्ध: शिथिल ांगता च शय्या सन स्वप्नसूखे रतिश्च।
हृनेत्र जिव्हाश्रवणोपदेहो घना ांगता केश नखाति वृद्धि: (च। चि ६ /१३)

शीत प्रियत्वं गलतालुशोषो माधुर्यमास्ये करपाददाह:भविष्यतो   मेहगदस्य रूपं मूत्रेाभि धावन्ति पिपीलिकाश्च। (च। चि ६ /१४)

These two shlokas represents the Purvrupa (early symptoms) of prameha: Sweat, foul smell, lethargy in body, always want to sleep or sit, chest region, eyes, tongue, ears full of dirt, gaining weight, excessive hair and nail growth, desire to drink more cold water, sore throat every time, burning sensation of hands and feet, sugar loss from urine etc these all are the early symptoms seen in a prameha (diabetic) patients.
