Abstract: Background: Diabetes is one of the largest global health emergencies of this century, ranking among the 10 leading causes of mortality together with cardiovascular disease (CVD), respiratory disease, and cancer. Ayurveda, as well as modern literature, approaches health from two perspectives, first the preventive aspect where the aim is sustaining health in healthy and the second one the curative aspect which aims at the treatment of the manifested diseases. Ayurveda places special emphasis on "Ahara" (diet) and "Anna" (food) as a means to the good life, health, and wellness. Along with the dietary aspect which consists of pathya and apathya, Ayurveda looks into the Prakriti of the participants and lays emphasis on yoga asanas. Aim: The study aims to look into 3 key aspects - pathya apathya aahar, Prakriti, and yoga asanas between the patients who follow the ayurvedic treatment regimen and those who follow the allopathic treatment regimen Methodology: A cross-sectional study was conducted in Mumbai among 100 type 2 diabetic participants, among them, 50 were from the allopathic treatment regimes and 50 were from ayurvedic treatment regimes, between 20-60 years of age. Data was collected, in which, information related to general demographic characteristics, questions pertaining to pathya apathya aahar on various food groups, specific Prakriti questions pertaining to Psychological and Physiological aspects, and lastly questions related to various yoga asanas/exercise was included. In addition to this, a 2- day 24hr recall and food frequency questionnaire was filled with the help of a research assistant to get a better picture in terms of pathya and apathya aahar from the participants. Analyses were performed by statistical analysis using SPSS version 25. P&lt;0.05 was considered to be statistically significant. Results: It was observed from the study that 50+ years of Ayurvedic participants 72% were older in age (p=0.014) (52.9±7.4).In Prakriti, in terms of appetite, it was noted that n=9 allopathic participants had more irregular, scanty appetites, n=10 participants of allopathic reported slow but steady appetite. In contrast, a strong unbearable appetite was seen more in n=43 ayurvedic participants. p <0.05 ( p =0.015 and Chi-square = 8.422).Overall the Prakriti shows a high score for pitta in Ayurveda (p = 0.049). In terms of food, a higher percentage of participants in the allopathic treatment regime never fasted (76%) wherein participants in the ayurvedic treatment regimes (44%) fasted sometimes (p=0.025). Salt intake was seen more in allopathic participants (17%) (p=0.038). Ayurveda participants consumed high sour food 15% as compared to allopathic 7% (p=0.053). The frequency of consumption of chole/ rajma/ urad dal was more in patients who were consuming an allopathic treatment regime (p=0.024). In oil, particularly allopathic participants consumed more (p=0.046) Soybean/safflower oil. All of the above listed showed a statistically significant difference. Conclusion: No significant difference was noted in the blood glucose levels between participants on ayurvedic and allopathic treatment regimes. The food frequency showed a mixed pattern of pathya and apathya food intake by ayurvedic participants irrespective of the knowledge imparted to them in the course of time during the treatment. Allopathic and ayurvedic participants did follow some pathya food regimes however no major statistically significant difference was noted in the study in terms of pathya and apathya food intake between both the groups. It can be concluded that with the right attitude and practice participants can manage blood glucose on a long-term basis.
