In the review of data collected on 98 subjects (67 male, 31 female), ages 20-74 years, with hypertension, coronary artery disease, rmellitus, and a variety of other illnesses, attended yoga class, researchers found that yoga treatment showed a significant improvement in hyperglycemia or and hypercholesterolemia through decreased fasting plasma glucose and total triglycerides as well as the preferred ratio of total cholesterol to high density lipoprotein (HDL) cholesterol.

Furthermore, in a total of 30 male diabetic patients attending diabetic clinic and 30 non-diabetic male volunteers constituted control group, conducted in the Department of Physiology and Diabetic clinic of a tertiary care teaching hospital over period of two years, all yoga attendees showed a significant reduction in mean values of FBS and PPBS at the end of six months when compared with the mean values before participating and in compared to control.

In fact, yoga therapy also found to be effective in improved glucose metabolism values in adolescent girls with polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS).
