The study was undertaken to explore if there was a definite role of homoeopathic medicines in the management of Diabetes Type 2 and, if so, to determine the role of Constitutional and Organ remedies in its management. The comprehensive role of the individual susceptibility and miasm in the management of diabetes was also been studied. 90 patients were studied by Randomized Single Blind Clinical Trial by dividing them into three groups - Constitutional, Organ and Placebo. In the later part of the study the Cross over design was adopted between the Constitutional group and the Placebo group. Results showed that at the end of the first 6 months of the trial, 67% patients improved from the constitutional group while the comparable figures from the Organ group and the Placebo group was 37% and 7% respectively. At the end of the trial 70% from the constitutional group improved as compared to 10% from the Organ remedy group and 7% from the placebo group. The study confirmed the efficacy of homoeopathic treatment in Diabetes type 2 and also established the indications for adopting the Constitutional and the Organ remedy approach to its management. In the process, the need to incorporate the study of individual susceptibility and miasmatic expressions in determining successful homoeopathic management and the parameters of assessing the susceptibility has been clearly defined.
