AimIn the present study, an attempt was made to evaluate the benefi cial effects of pranayama on glycemic control, hypertension and dyslipidemia between addicted diabetic and non-addicted diabetic patients.
Diabetes is a global epidemic and it has been posing a biggest threat ever witnessed with devastating human, social and economic consequences.
The study was conducted on 28 male patients suffering from diabetes mellitus Type-II between the age group of 30-60 years, for the period of 6 month at Index Medical College Hospital and Research Centre, Indore. Subject will be practicing yoga or simple pranayama (breathing exercise) for approximately 5 min for a period of 6 months.
The result of this study suggests that after 6 months of yogic exercises there is a significant decline in fasting blood sugar level of subjects who have no addiction, but lipid profile and blood pressure do not show any significant change either on addicted or non-addicted diabetes patients. The effect of yoga practice on various parameters were recorded and statistically analyzed by paired t-test for evaluation.
Diabetes mellitus silently progress it compromises the function of many of the system so, people should not delay in achieving the effective control. Yoga can be an adjuvant, but not a replacement for tested and tried medical management of diabetes mellitus Type II.

AimThe aim of this study is to look for the current and any changing trends in the major lower limb amputations (LLAs) in the developing countries. Background
Amputation is the last treatment option in limbs, which are not salvageable or when the diseased limb poses a threat to the life of the patient. Indications of LLA are many, but trauma is the leading cause of major LLA in the developing nations, while as peripheral vascular disease (PVD) and diabetes is the most common indication in developed nations.
This prospective study was conducted from December 2012 to October 2013 in Government Medical College, Jammu, a tertiary care center of North India. Demographic profile of the patients along with indications, level of amputation, peri-operative complications and additional procedures required in the patients who had major LLAs during the study period were recorded. The date was analyzed by appropriate statistical tests.
There were 33 major LLAs performed at an average rate of 3 per month. Average age of patients was 43.5 years with 88.87% patients being males. 30.56% amputations were traumatic while as PVD and diabetes was the etiology in 19.44% and 16.67% amputations, respectively. Two patients expired in the post-operative period. Infection of the stump was the most common local complication in the post-operative period.
Trauma still is the most common cause of LLAs in the developing nations, but amputations for complications of diabetes is on the rise and may be the leading etiology in future.
