In the present case study, the case of a high-risk female participant for diabetes was presented. She is a resident of Dhanas colony, Chandigarh, India. The mapping of risk status for diabetes was done through the Indian Diabetes Risk Score (IDRS) in the participant. She was found to be at high risk for diabetes with a risk score of 60. She joined the Yoga camp organized in the Village Dhanas, Chandigarh. The Diabetic Yoga Protocol (DYP), mainly developed for prediabetics, was given to the participant for 12 weeks. The glycated haemoglbin (HbA1c) was considered the guiding criteria for determining the glycemic threshold for prediabetes. The participant’s HbA1c level was 5.8% at baseline, and fasting blood glucose (FBG) was 93 mg/dl. After the 12 weeks of DYP intervention, a significant decline in the HbA1c (5.3%) and FBG (76.9 mg/dl) levels were seen. The present case report supports the efficacy of DYP as an efficient, secure, and cost-effective in reversing prediabetes into normal by ameliorating the glycemic indices.
