Abstract

Background: Undernutrition is one of the major causes of increased morbidity & mortality among children. One of the most emerging issues in the present scenario is having long-term effects on physical & cognitive development. Underweight is one of the cardinal determinants of under nutrition.  According to a 2019 report, India is ranked 102 out of 119 countries. As per NFHS 4 in India shows 35.7% under 5 children were underweight, 38.4% were stunted & 21% were wasted. Karshya is an Apatarpana Janya Vyadhi.  The trial was proposed to study the comparative effect of Ghanavyoshadi Khanda & Vidaryadi Khanda by using specific parameters for Karshya w.s.r. to underweight. Objective: To evaluate the comparative effect of Ghanavyoshadi Khanda over Vidarikandadi Khanda in the management of Karshya. Materials & Methods: Children of age group 2-5 years were selected from Kaumarabhritya OPD of SDM College of Ayurveda & Hospital, Udupi, also from nearby Anganwadi’s & preschool of Udupi. Selected subjects were randomly allocated into 2 groups of 15 patients each. Group A will be administered with Ghanavyoshadi Khanda along with Sukoshna Ksheera as Anupana twice daily before food and group B with Vidarikandadi Khanda along with Sukoshna Ksheera as Anupana twice daily after food for 1 month. Results: Children showed improvements in all aspects of Karshya w.s.r. to underweight like weight, height, MUAC, & BMI. Both the groups showed highly significant improvement in Kshut, Abyavarana Sakti & significant changes in Badhavitt. Insignificant changes in Alpapranaschakriya, Pipasa & Nidra. Conclusion: It was concluded clinically the consumption of Ghanavyoshadi Khanda & Vidaryadi Khanda along with Sukoshna Ksheera are equally effective in the management of Karshya w.s.r. to underweight in children.
