Abstract

Background and Objectives: The application of mud pack to the abdomen is one of the treatment modalities commonly used in alternative medicines, mainly by Naturopathic physicians. Present study evaluated the effect of mud pack over the abdomen on FBS, PPBS and HbA1C in patients with Type 2 diabetes mellitus. Hence, this study aims to evaluate the magnitude of placebo response and treatment response patterns in clinical trials. Materials and Methods: A study has been conducted in Outpatient unit of SDM Yoga and Nature cure hospital, Ujire, Karnataka. 120 subjects were screened and 60 subjects were recruited for the study and were randomly allocated into two groups; Group-A intervention group(n=30) and Group-B placebo group(n=30) using lottery method. In the intervention group, the mud pack was applied over the abdomen for 20 minutes along with life style modification and in placebo group, the wheat flour pack applied over the abdomen for 20 minutes along with life style modification. Subjects were assessed for FBS, PPBS and HbA1C levels on the first day. On the 10th day FBS and PPBS are again collected and patients are asked to send the HbA1C reports after 3 months of follow up. Result: Results of this study showed a significant reduction in FBS, PPBS and HbA1C in patients who had taken abdominal mud pack. And no such significant changes were observed in placebo group. Conclusion: Addition of abdominal mud pack with life style modifications augments the therapeutic effects of Yoga & Naturopathy interventions in the management of Type2 Diabetes Mellitus.
