Diabetic Peripheral Neuropathy of Modern science is a burning issue in the society with prevalence ranging from 10% to 48% where more than 21% of diabetics are diagnosed incidentally while diagnosing diabetic peripheral neuropathy. Ayurveda, a holistic science of health understands this condition as Suptavata, a Vata Nanatmaja Vyadhi which is the ultimate result of Padadaha and Suchivat Toda in Madhumehi. Diabetic Peripheral Neuropathy is caused due to the microangiopathy occurring secondary to the Hyperglycaemia and this is taken as Srotodushti Janya Vatavikruti leading to Suptata. Prasarinyadi Taila is a Yuktikruta Taila Yoga which is prepared using Prasarinyadi Kashaya and Prasarini Taila. Prasarini is the drug of choice in diseases having Sira-Snayu Sankocha as pathology, as it can act on such issue by Prasarana of Rakta. Microangiopathy and Sira-Snayu Sankocha are having similar output. Padabhyanga done using Prasarinyadi Taila in Suptavata can increase the circulation and there by correcting the pathology of Microangiopathy.
