Diabetic complications are generally classified into macrovascular and microvascular conditions. Depending on the location of the atherosclerotic lesion, macrovascular disease (coronary artery disease, cerebrovascular disease, peripheral vascular disease) may occur. The prevalence of diabetes and its complication is increasing all over the world, particularly in developing countries. It has emerged as a major public health problem in our country. The disease Madhumeha is described under Prameha and it is the subtype of Vataja Prameha Madhumeha manifest due to morbidity of Shukra and Shonita which is incurable.
