Madhumeha "Richman's disease", since Vedic period, is familiar to mankind. Madhumeha is a disease in which Mutra (urine) of the patient attains similar property like those of Madhu (Honey). It is also explained that, when the other Prameha are left untreated, this lead to the condition called Madhumeha. So Madhumeha can also be considered as an advanced condition or stage of Prameha.1 Diabetes Mellitus is a chronic disorder of carbohydrate metabolism, marked by hyperglycemia and glycosuria and resulting from inadequate production or use of insulin. In present study the reassessment of Madhutailika Basti has been done to understand its efficacy in Diabetes mellitus. Madhutailika Basti, contains Madhu, Erandamool Kwatha, Til Taila, Shatapushpa Kalka, Saindhava Lavana.2 The improvement was calculated by subjective parameters like Prabhutavil Mutrata (polyurea), Kshudha Vruddhi (polyphasia), Pippasa Vruddhi (polydipsia), Dourbalya (general weaknesss), Paridaha (burning sensation), Kandu (itching), Bhrama (vertigo), Anidra (insomnia), Nakta Mutra Pravrutti (urination during night), Hast Pada Chimchimaya (tingling) to score clinical outcome. Here statistical analysis was done with the help of Mann-Whitney test which shows some promising results, i.e. p<0.0001. These results show a window of opportunity to treat Madhumeha with Ayurvedic perspective to provide better life to the patients.
