Influence Of Pranayamas And Yoga-asanas On Serum Insulin, Blood Glucose And Lipid Profile In Type 2 Diabetes

, Volume 23, Issue4 , pp 365368 | Cite as Influence of pranayamas and yoga-asanas on serum insulin, blood glucose and lipid profile in type 2 diabetes A distinguishable feature of type 2 diabetes besides hyperglycemia and deranged lipid profile is an impaired insulin secretion, peripheral insulin resistance and obesity which has become a major health concern worldwide. India with an estimated 31million diabetics in 2000 and 79mllions by the yr 2030 has the highest number of type 2 diabetics in the world. In this study, we aimed to see if yoga-asanas and pranayamas have any influence in modifying certain biochemical parameters. Sixty patients of uncomplicated type 2 diabetes (age 3560 yrs of 110 yrs duration) were divided into two groups: Group 1 (n=30): performed yoga along with the conventional hypoglycemic medicines and group 2 (n=30): patients who only received conventional medicines. Duration of the study was 45 days. Basal recordings of blood glucose (fasting and post-prandial), lipid profile and serum insulin were taken at the time of recruitment and the second reading after forty five days. Results showed a significant improvement in all the biochemical parameters in group 1 while group 2 showed significant improvement in only few parameters, thus suggesting a beneficial effect of yoga regimen on these parameters in diabetic patients.

Yoga Asana, Meditation, Pranayama Can Help Cure Diabetes; Blood Sugar.

Continuous practice of Yoga Asana, Meditation and Pranayama can help cure Diabetes; high blood sugar. But What is Diabetes? Diabetes is a Metabolic Disorder that occurs either when the pancreas can’t produce the hormone insulin necessary for converting sugar into energy (type 1) or when the body is unable to use the insulin it produces in the proper manner (type 2) International Diabetes Federation (IDF) released a report in 2012, stated that close to 52% of Indians are unaware that they are suffering from high blood sugar; also they add that the number of Indians with diabetes mellitus is expected to cross the 100 million mark by 2030. Classification of Diabetes 1 – Type 1 Diabetics is caused by an autoimmune or genetic dysfunction where pancreas fail to secrete enough insulin, usually affects people under the age of 30. 2 – Type 2 Diabetics typically shows insulin resistance – condition where cells fails to respond to insulin.Type 2 Diabetics affects 90% of diabetics and it is usually caused by excess body weight and inactivity. 3 – Gestational Diabetes in pregnant women without previous history of Diabetes. Whatever the type of Diabetes, the earlier the condition is diagnosed and treated, the better it is. Daily practice of Yoga, pranayama, Meditation along with medication and Diet modifications helps manage and overcome Diabetes. Yoga Asana for Diabetes cure Yoga Asana useful for Diabetes cure are those which bring about a stretch and twist in lower thoracic and upper lumbar region, where pancreas is located. These yoga asana are believed to increase the blood supply, massage the organs, activate its cells and thereby cause an increase in secretion of insulin; reducing high blood sugar. Yoga asana regenerates/rejuvenates pancreatic cells by abdominal stret Continue reading >>

This is the first review of the literature on the effects of slow breathing on glycemic regulation and insulin sensitivity. While many studies have investigated the effects of yoga on individuals with diabetes, few studies have specifically focusing on the isolation of slow breathing as the principle factor in their intervention. While it is difficult to separate the exercise-related effects of yoga, there is considerable evidence that a breathing intervention is capable of increasing insulin sensitivity and improving glycemic regulation. This appears to be true both acutely and chronically in healthy individuals and those with diabetes. Yoga pranayama and the slow breathing practices that are fundamental to yoga represent a relatively low-cost and under-utilized intervention for individuals with conditions related to altered glycemic regulation and insulin sensitivity. More studies should focus on pranayama and slow breathing maneuvers to better clarify the role of respiratory modulation on glucose metabolism and insulin response. Yoga; Glucose; Breathing; Respiration; Metabolism; Diabetes Deep breathing techniques are commonly practiced in the context of traditional yoga exercises that seek to improve cogn Continue reading >>

Yoga & Diabetes Management, Asanas, Pranayama

Yogacharya Vishwas Mandlik & Dr. Sujit Chandratreya (DM, DNB, MD) (Endocrinologist, Diabetologist) Diabetes Mellitus is a disease related to the impaired glucose tolerance of the body, insulin functioning is affected. Symptoms of diabetes can be excessive thirst, excessive hunger or excessive / frequent urination. Diabetes Mellitus can be of Type 1 or Type 2 or pancreatic diabetes or gestational diabetes. Type 1 diabetes is caused by No production of insulin and this is very difficult to treat with Yoga. Type 2 diabetes which is caused by life style, stress related diseases can be effectively treated with Yoga. Sun Salutation is very good exercise for people suffering from diabetes, it increases the blood supply to various parts of body, improving insulin administration in the body, it gives all the benefits of exercise if practiced at 4 rounds per minute. If practiced at slow speed, it offers the benefits of asanas. Asanas are beneficial in treatment of diabetes. Important aspect of Asanas is stability and comfort experienced in the position. After attaining the position, one needs to relax all the muscles and try to maintain the positions for long. Due to various twists, stretches and strains in the body, the internal organs are stretched and subjected to strain. This increases the blood supply, oxygen supply to the organs increasing the efficiency and functioning of the organ. Stretching various glands result in increased efficiency of the endocrine system. Asanas like Dhanurasana (Bow pose in prone position), Ardhamatsyendrasana (Half spinal twist), Vajrasana Yoga Mudra, Pavan Muktasana, Sarvangasana, Halasana, Matsyasana have been found useful in diabetes. These asanas have positive effect on pancreas and also insulin functioning. But to get this result, one needs Continue reading >>

This is an open access article distributed under the Creative Commons Attribution License , which permits unrestricted use, distribution, and reproduction in any medium, provided the original work is properly cited. A growing body of evidence suggests yogic practices may benefit adults with type 2 diabetes (DM2). In this systematic review, we evaluate available evidence from prospective controlled trials regarding the effects of yoga-based programs on specific health outcomes pertinent to DM2 management. To identify qualifying studies, we searched nine databases and scanned bibliographies of relevant review papers and all identified articles. Controlled trials that did not target adults with diabetes, included only adults with type 1 diabetes, were under two-week duration, or did not include quantitative outcome data were excluded. Study quality was evaluated using the PEDro scale. Thirty-three papers reporting findings from 25 controlled trials (13 nonrandomized, 12 randomized) met our inclusion criteria (N = 2170 participants). Collectively, findings suggest that yogic practices may promote significant improvements in several indices of importance in DM2 management, including glycemic control, lipid levels, and body composition. More limited data suggest that yoga may also lower oxidative stress and blood pressure; enhance pulmonary and Continue reading >>

Effect Of Pranayama & Yogasana On Diabetes -1

Effect of Pranayama & Yogasana on Diabetes -1 By: Acharya Balkrishna, Avnish Upadhyay , Ruchita Upadhyay Diabetes poses a major health problem globally and is one of the top five leading causes of death in most developed countries. A substantial body of evidence suggests that it could reach epidemic proportions particularly in developing and newly industrialized countries. (1) Indeed, by the year 2025, three-quarters of the world's 300 million adults with diabetes will be in developing countries and almost a third in India and China alone. (2) The prevalence of diabetes in India is showing a sharp upswing as is evident from secular trends from different parts of the subcontinent and studies of migrant Indians. (3) The World Health Organization has estimated that in 1995,19.4 million individuals were affected by diabetes in India and these numbers are expected to increase to 57.2 million by the year 2025 i.e. one- sixth of the world total.1 The revised figures are 80.9 millionby the year 2030. (4) Diabetes is a complex condition with a multitude of metabolic imbalances involving the regulation and utilization of insulin and glucose (sugar) in the body. Diabetes is currently considered an epidemic disease that is largely preventable and treatable through diet, exercise and lifestyle changes. Yoga's effectiveness at preventing and treating diabetes is due to its emphasis of a healthy diet and lifestyle as well as its ability to balance the endocrine system, massage and tone the abdominal organs, stimulate the nervous and circulatory systems, and reduce stress. Yogasana [Yoga Postures] and Pranayama [Voluntary regulated Yoga Breathing] is a highly effective part of diabetes treatment because it increases insulin sensitivity and lowers blood sugar level.

Pranayama Can Help Lower Down Your Sugar Levels

Pranayama Can Help Lower Down Your Sugar Levels

Pranayama can help lower down your sugar levels ByEditorial Team , Onlymyhealth editorial team Diabetes is a metabolic kapha type of disorder in which diminished functioning of agni Kapalabhati sanitised blood to the brain and clearance of nasal passages Ujjayi assists a practitioner in prevailing over derangement of the crucial force known as uddana Diabetes is a metabolic kapha type of disorder in which diminished functioning of agni (digestive fire) leads to a tendency toward high blood sugar. Try pranayama for thediabetes cure. Kapalabhati is a Sanskrit word where Kapala means skull, and bhati means "to shine." This dynamic purification exercise has noteworthy benefits like providing a bath of recently sanitised blood to the brain and clearance of nasal passages. Think of kapalabhati as an abdominal exhalation exercise. Sit upright in a comfortable position and then inhale. Keep in mind not to move your chest and shoulders. Just exhale completely. Now youll feel some commotion in your diaphragmatic muscle. It should be noted how the first segment of the exhalation is completely natural and how forcing out more air will lead to acontraction in the abdominal muscles. Unless you feel you are beginning to use the abdominal muscles to complete the exhalation, continue this for few times. The exhalation in kapalabhati is petite, dominant, and absolute, and it takes thedue amount of practice to become faultless. Set in motion by ascertaining a baseline of profound and levelled nasal breathing. Begin with anexhalation of contracting the face of abdomen muscles--from just below the ribs to the pelvis--strongly and swiftly, forcing the air out of the nostrils. Keeping in mind there is no other activity and no blockage of the nostrils, this shall conclude in the throwing out Continue reading >>

Diabetes Symptom – How Yoga Control And Cure Diabetes?

Diabetes Symptom – How Yoga Control And Cure Diabetes?

What is diabetes? Diabetes occurs due to a disorder of metabolism. People of any age get diabetes. The body does not produce sufficient insulin or use it properly. So it leads to high glucose in the blood. What we eat, is broken down into glucose energy (a form of sugar in the blood). This blood glucose is very important for the proper function of the body. This glucose moves from the blood to body cells for growth and energy. But in this insulin plays an important role for glucose to get into cells. Insulin is a hormone which is produced by the pancreas. When we eat the pancreas produces enough insulin to carry glucose from the blood into the cells. Those people having diabetes, the pancreas does not produce enough insulin so blood glucose (sugar) does not get into the body cell. It passes out of the body in the urine. Body cells find unable to grow and produce energy which is very important for healthy living. Diabetes Symptom Frequent urination Feeling very thirsty Feeling very hungry even after eating Extreme fatigue – tiredness Blurry vision – Poor eyesight Weight loss Itching in the body Slow healing of wounds Low sexual power If you are having these diabetes symptoms then should start to take care immediately. Regular blood sugar check-up should be done. Yoga exercise, fast walking, and jogging is most important. Because exercise reduces blood sugar level and keeps it in control. Say no to sugar liquid, juice, food and rice. Yoga to Control Diabetes Kapalbhati Pranayama is the excellent pranayama to cure and control diabetes. Those having high diabetes should practice for 10 – 30 minutes daily in the morning and evening on an empty stomach. High blood pressure and heart patient should practice slowly. 3 exhalation in 6 seconds only. In the market, there are Continue reading >>

Effect Of Yoga On Blood Glucose Levels In Patients With Type 2 Diabetes Mellitus

Effect Of Yoga On Blood Glucose Levels In Patients With Type 2 Diabetes Mellitus

Go to: Abstract In view of people embracing sedentary life style, and the effectiveness of treatment becoming less, the role of regular exercise especially ‘yoga’ seems to be a beneficial and economical adjuvant in the management of the Type 2 diabetes mellitus (T2DM). To assess the beneficial effects of yoga on blood glucose levels in normal and T2DM volunteers. Materials and Methods A prospective case-control study was conducted in the Department of Physiology and Diabetic clinic of a tertiary care teaching hospital over period of two years. The study subjects consisted of 30 male diabetic patients attending diabetic clinic and 30 non-diabetic male volunteers constituted control group. The patients in the age group of 36 to 55 years with T2DM of at least one year duration and those on diabetic diet and oral hypoglycemic agents were included in the study group. The age matched healthy male volunteers who had come to join yoga training at yoga centre were included in the control group. All the participants were trained by yoga experts and subjected to regular practice under supervision for six months. In all the participants fasting (FBS) and post-prandial blood sugar (PPBS) was estimated before, during (at three months) and after (six months) yoga training. Paired Student t-test was used to estimate difference in means calculated before and after yoga training in a same group. A p-value of <0.05 was considered as statistically significant. The distribution of age, mean height and mean weight among both the groups were comparable. The reduction in mean values of FBS and PPBS at the end of six months was highly significant (p <0.001) in both the groups when compared with the mean values before and during (three months) yoga practice. The reduction in these values at Continue reading >>
