Of all the misleading statements Caraka's categorical declaration that all pramehas if not treated ends up as Madhumeha stands formost. Outlining a common samprapti for all Mutratipravrittaja Rogas appears to be the basic misleading efforts. Extremely limited description at certain points only adds to the confusion. Untiring efforts of the enthusiastic scholars to prove that Madhumeha is synonymous with Diabetes Mellitus have failed to help. The present study undertakes to discuss these aspects in detail and endeavours to come out with some solutions without compromising much on the classical concepts.
