Abstract

Yoga practice aids in management of Type 2 diabetes mellitus (DM 2). In this study, we aimed to see the effects of yoga-based program in modifying certain biochemical parameters for long duration TypeDM2 elderly subjects. Sixty elderly with more than 15 years of DM 2 were randomly assigned into Control (Educational group) and Yoga group in a tertiary day care center. Educational group received advice and leaflets on general healthy lifestyle and exercise for every one month. The yoga group was offered individualized yoga asanas and Pranayama for 6 days a week over 12 weeks. Following 12 weeks of intervention, Pre- and Postbiochemical parameters were analyzed between the groups. Results showed a significant improvement in glycosylated hemoglobin level, Fasting glucose level, and serum lipid profile in Yoga group compared to Educational group. Yoga asanas under supervision have beneficial effects in biochemical parameters for chronic Type 2 diabetic elderly subjects.
