A SCIENTIFIC STUDY OF LIPID PROFILE IN MADHUMEHA W.S.R TO TYPE-2 DIABETES
*Dr. Kumar Ashok and Dr. Shailendra Kumar Singh
Ayurveda is a „Science of Life‟ which provides curative as well as preventive principles for healthy and long life. The ancient Ayurvedic classics texts namely the Samhitas of Charak, Sushruta and Vagbhata and the subsequent treatises have invariably given detailed description of the disease diabetes, its causes, types, pathology and the line of management and treatment both preventive and curative. Diabetes Mellitus (DM) is a group of metabolic disorder of carbohydrate metabolism in which glucose is underutilized, producing hyperglycaemia. Furthermore, it is proposed that underutilization of glucose is associated with change in lipid profile. Change in lipid profile is also well related with severity of DM.
Keywords: Diabetes Mellitus, Madhumeha, Lipid profile, Blood glucose, Cholesterol.
