  • Avnish K Upadhyay , Acharya Balkrishna and Ruchita T Upadhyay

Diabetes is a complex condition with a multitude of metabolic imbalances involving the regulation and utilization of insulin and glucose (sugar) in the body. Diabetes is currently considered an epidemic disease that is largely preventable and treatable through yoga.
