Introduction: This case demonstrates the therapeutic possibilities of the Ayurvedic mode of management in Juvenile diabetes where predictable treatment was incapable to withstand the desired dose and effects. Main Clinical Findings: A 25-year-old male patient suffering from uncontrolled sugar levels for 2 years and mild low backache for 8 years. Diagnosis: Prediagnosed case of Juvenile diabetes, taking substantial dose (84 units/day) of two different types of insulin injections. Intervention: After appropriate analysis of the patient based on Ayurvedic parameters, the patient was treated with a combination of panchakarma and shamana therapies along with his existing allopathic intervention. Lifestyle modifications and diet changes were also advised. Outcome: There was a reduction of 40 units of insulin dosage, which was assessed by the glucometer-guided random blood sugar at the time of discharge. Conclusions: Adaptation of Ayurvedic intervention can augment the treatment for Juvenile diabetes.
