A obese, Female with sedentary life style aged 56 years, having an history of DM since 10 years visited Diabetic Clinic with complaints of weakness, giddiness, nausea, severe burning in feet and legs , frequent urination, insomnia, headache, constipation and loss of appetite from 90 days. Her BP was 132/86, Height 151 cm, Weight 63 kg, BMI -27.3, Vitals were stable. Her FBS was 184, PPBS -301, Serum TG-175, Cholesterol- 210, VLDL-135, and HDL-33. Ayurvedic parameters were also assessed and recorded. She was administered with Mamejavadi Ghan vati (MGV) in a dose of 1g twice a day before meals, Haritki Ghan Vati (HGV) 3 tablets twice a day after meals, Amalki Ghan Vati (AGV) in a dose of 2 tablets twice a day with plain water and 3g Turmeric powder in 50 ml milk at bed time for a period of 30 days . Previous allopathic medicine Metformin 500mg + Glimepiride 1mg was also continued. She was advised brisk walking and diet control. After 30 days patient was reviewed where subjective satisfaction in improvement of almost all symptoms except frequency of Micturation (mild relief) was noted.

The present case study reveals the therapeutic benefits of MGV in relieving all symptoms to a greater extent and hence multi centric RCT could be planned in future to assess its efficacy.
