Diabetes is a lifestyle disorder that requires not just medication but a proper lifestyle and regimen. I wish to bring to the fore a proper amount of exercise in the form of yogic asana and pranayama. This goes a long way in control of sugar. I will enlist herein the asanas and their benefit in diabetes which have been mentioned in various texts. Also giving focus on the amount of asanas to be done per day and how it is to be started and increased as practice increases. Doing this form of yoga will not only help reduce diabetes but promote a healthy lifestyle and curb many diseases along with diabetes. It is an integral and crucial part of treatment and must be prescribed by any and all doctors treating this disease. Understanding the prakruti and the nature of the disease, the asanas should also be varied and the duration and amount to be done must also be considered keeping in mind the agni and bala of the individual. Kostha also plays an important part while deciding the asana, pranayam, bandha, etc.
