Purpose: A comparative clinical study was conducted on the management of Diabetic Retinopathy (DR) with Doorvadya Ghrita Tarpana and Mahavasadi kwatha internally. The main aim and objective of the study was to evaluate the efficacy of Doorvadya ghrita Tarpana and Mahavasadi kwatha internally, when used individually and as an adjuvant. Method: The patients were randomly divided in 3 groups with 15 patients in each group. Group A: Tarpana with Doorvadya Ghrita for 3 sittings, 5 days in each sitting, with a gap of 11 days after each sitting, total 48 days duration. Group B: Mahavasakadi Kwatha Pana with 50ml dose every day in the morning, empty stomach, for 48 days. Group C: Both Doorvadya Ghrita Tarpana and Mahavasakadi kwatha pana, for 48 days. Result: All the three groups have shown statistically significant results. Group B and C have shown better response as compared to Group A. Moreover Group B has shown slightly better response as compared to Group C. Conclusion: The study showed that microaneurysms, intra retinal haemorrhages, exudates are best managed by treatment with Group-B; where as blurred vision responded better to combine treatment of Group-C. Other parameters like neovascularization did not produce any significant result in any of the groups. Hence Ayurvedic management definitely prevents further progression of the Diabetic Retinopathy and its complications.
