Abstract

Type 2 diabetes is a growing problem worldwide with an estimated 387 million individuals affected by the disease. As the numbers continue to grow, there is a need for improved and expanded delivery of treatment. Previous research has suggested that yoga hold promise as a means to improve the symptoms of type 2 diabetes. This review will provide background on the disease and its impact in India and the United States, as well as on yoga, and how it may impact those affected. Recent articles will be reviewed, results presented and analyzed, then compared to previous systematic reviews on the topic. Finally, limitations of the review will be discussed and suggestions made for further research on the topic.^
