Microalbuminuria is one initial diagnostic marker of progressive Diabetic Nephropathy (DN). Urine Albumin Excretion (UAE) between 30 and 300 mg/24 h is found in Stage 2 DN. In Ayurveda, no description is found, which can be directly correlated with DN, but Nidana and Samprapti of Prameha can be correlated for its manifestation. In this case, a 56-year-old male patient visited to Shalya Tantra OPD with complaints of type 2 diabetes and 135 mg UAE in 24 h with estimated Glomerular Filtration Rate (eGFR) of 77 ml/min/1.73 m2. This case report was aimed to evaluate the effect of Ayurveda formulations (Gokshuradi guggulu, Haritakyadi kwatha, Bhumyamalaki churna, and Gokshura churna) with Pathya ahara (Plant-based diet) in the management of microalbuminuria in DN Stage 2. This formulation was given for one month and Pathya ahara advised for two months. UAE significantly decreased and came to normoalbuminuria state. eGFR increased up to 87 ml/min/1.73 m2. The present study suggested that using Ayurveda formulations with Pathya ahara is effective in the management of microalbuminuria in DN Stage 2.
