Abstract
Background: India is known as the diabetic capital of the world. Yoga induces relaxation, which is also a crucial factor in the healthy functioning of the internal organs of the body. It can help to maintain normal BSL.

Aims and Objectives: This study was planned to assess and compare the effect of yoga on BP, fasting blood glucose, and Glycosylated hemoglobin (HbA1C) level before and after the intervention (Yoga) in patients of Type 2 diabetes mellitus (T2DM).

Materials and Methods: Current research has been conducted in collaboration with the Department of Medicine, Department of Pathology, and Department of Biochemistry, Department of Physiology, Jhalawar Medical College and Hospital, Jhalawar (Rajasthan) and Yoga OPD. A randomized, controlled study is currently underway. The test group consisted of 50 subjects with a control group of 50 subjects. The goal of this research was to examine the 3-month effect of yoga practice on subjects with T2DM.

Results: In the current study, differences in blood pressure between cases and controls were not relevant in terms of height, whereas mean fasting glucose levels, HbA1C, and body mass index were found to be significantly lower in the yoga-medication study community relative to controls who took only non-yogapractice drugs.

Conclusion: Yogic practices play a role in both primary and secondary prevention of DM. Yoga therapy can also be considered to be a beneficial adjuvant in the treatment of T2DM.

Key words: Yoga; Diabetes; Blood Pressure; Glycosylated Hemoglobin
