Dr. Anamika Sharma* and Dr. Veenu Malhotra B.A.M.S, M.D., Ph.d

ABSTRACT

Inclusion of Prameha among the eight major disorders in Charaka Samhita shows the importance of the disease given by ancient seers. The present study endeavors to discuss the similarities and differences among the various components of Madhumehajanya Timir with Diabetic retinopathy and its stages. All the three doshas along with Raktadosha and Saptadhatu with four internal Dristipatals of eye are affected in Madhumehajanya timir in different stages of the disease. Avarana and Dhatukshaya too have important role in development of diabetic retinopathy due to prolonged and uncontrolled hyperglycemia. Agnimandya related Ama formation has a role in pathology of diabetic retinopathy which is quite similar to oxidative theory of diabetic retinopathy explained in modern pathology. Urdhwaga raktapitta, Ojas kshaya, Raktavritta vata and Pranavritta vyana are other causes in development of diabetic retinopathy. Diabetic retinopathy is most common and serious complication of Diabetes and changes in the retina are observed by 10 years of Diabetes history or even earlier due to modified lifestyle in present era. This disease results in generalized macro and micro vascular complications linked to glycemic control and affect these resulting in poor vision or even blindness.
