Certain limitations of antidiabetic regimens including adverse reactions etc. have raised the need for a drugless approach to improve the health status of diabetic patients. Yoga can act as advantageous therapy in this regard. An attempt has been made to find out the add-on effectiveness of the Yoga package in uncontrolled diabetes mellitus. A 51-year-old male, a known case of type 2 diabetes mellitus with complaints of general weakness, burning sensation over soles, thirst, and dryness of mouth was presented in the OPD of Swasthavritta. The patient was on allopathic medication for 10 years. The report showed uncontrolled diabetes mellitus for the past five years. The patient was selected and underwent one-hour preformed Yoga Module that includes Parivritta trikonasana, Paschimottanasana, Shashankasana, Ardhamatsyendrasana, Bhujangasana, Dhanurasana followed by Kapalbhathi, Bhastrika and Nadishodana Pranayama practice for a period of one month without withdrawing the previous medication. The difference in Fasting Blood Sugar (FBS) and Post Prandial Blood Sugar (PPBS) before and after the treatment were 26mg/dl and 31.4mg/dl respectively. The severity of general weakness, burning sensation over soles, thirst, and dryness of mouth were also reduced after this intervention inferring its influence on disease management.
