The drugs, diet, and yoga can control it.Comparing with oral hypoglycemic drugs the yoga has found very effective in controling the blood sugar. It also helps to avoid the complications of the diabetes mellitus. Drugs are having their own specific adverse effects whereas yoga has no adverse effect. Yoga is an ancient Indian Science. Several booksare there mentioning the usefulness of yoga in the treatment of the diabetes mellitus
We carried out well-designed observatory and analylitical study with the diabetics to assess the role of yogic practices on the glycemic control, insulin kinetics, body composition and various morbidities like hypertension and dyslipidemia.
This study further confirmed the useful role of yoga in the control of the diabetes mellitus. Fasting and postprandial blood glucose level comes down significantly. Good glycemic status can be maintained for long duration. The lowering of the drug intake has also been observed during the study. The numbers of the insulin receptors have also found increased. It has been noticed that there was a remarkable improvement in the insulin sensitivity and decline in the insulin resistance.
Research analysis suggests that continuous yogic practices have more significant role even in the prevention of the diabetes mellitus with respect to the drugs.
