Understanding Diabetes Mellitus (DM) in Ayurveda as Prameha, is always challenging as the diagnosis is made based on the clinical presentation of patients during the course of illness, not merely based on the blood glucose levels. All types of Prameha if not managed, will manifest as Vata pradhana prameha and later become Asadhya (~incurable) phase of Vataja prameha. A 41-year-old known diabetic (type 2) presented with complaints of generalized weakness, loss of weight, and loss of appetite. His blood sugar level was within normal limits at the time of the first visit. Considering the Vata predominance, Brimhana chikitsa (~nourishment therapy) with oral administration of Darvyadi ghrita for 60 days was prescribed in the case. The assessment was based on subjective and objective parameters. The improvements are significant and infer that Ayurveda medicines can satisfactorily help in the management of noncommunicable diseases like DM.
