Out of 194 patients who visited our OPD with primary aim as management of their type 2 diabetes 27 cases found to have adequate baseline and endpoint data and satisfying the inclusion criterion were delineated, exhibiting secondary failure to oral hypoglycemic drug . At least 1 prescription claim for a sulfonylurea or a thiazolidinedione during study period along with metformin use include in the study. Secondary failure was measured for patients who initially achieved a Fasting and Post prandial blood glucose 126 mg/dl and 200 mg/dl but in due course of chronicity again rose above the said level, exhibiting secondary failure of oral hypoglycemic drugs Result: Participants (mean age, 50.034 (S.D. μ13.64) years; 55.6% female and 44.4 % males) who were known diabetic since 5.9185 (S.D. μ6.6) underwent a customized Ayurveda treatment with Allopathic oral hypoglycemic drugs as concomitant medication for average of 16.2 weeks.
