Efficacy of Comprehensive Diabetes Care (CDC) Therapy in Patients of Type II Diabetes Mellitus: Relapse of the Disease

Diabetes mellitus (DM) prevalence is rising worldwide at an alarming rate, with India leading the pack with the highest percentage of people with diabetes. The typical diabetic treatment solutions that are currently accessible have some drawbacks, so some alternate treatments are needed. The traditional medicine of India, Ayurveda, contains many treatments for diabetes and its consequences. This study was conducted to study the CDC's effectiveness in treating T2DM relapse in patients with restored glycemia. A total of 25 patients with restored Euglycemia of either sex and aged between 30-70 years suffering from T2DM and completed 1-year follow-up were included in the study. The Comprehensive Diabetes Care (CDC) therapy, a three-step detoxification procedure- Snehana, i.e. oleation, Swedana, i.e. passive heat therapy, and Basti, i.e. per rectal drug administration and food therapy was administrated to the patients. The data of their clinical parameters were evaluated. The weight, BMI, ABG, SBP, and DBP values were seen to be reduced after 90 days of the treatment but slightly increased after 1-year post-treatment of CDC therapy. Also, HbA1c was found to be reduced after 90 days, and after one year of follow-up, a slight increase in HbA1c value was seen. The overall change was -21.11% (p-value=0.00). The reduction in allopathic medicines was observed after 90 days and also after 1 year of follow-up. Even though 8% of the patients experienced a Type 2 DM relapse, the other 92% were still non-diabetic after one year.
