In type 2 diabetes, the pancreas doesn't produce enough insulin or the body's cells don't react to insulin. This means that glucose stays in the blood and isn't used as fuel for energy. Type 2 diabetes is often associated with obesity and tends to be diagnosed in older people. It's far more common than type 1 diabetes.

Based on the available literature, researchers concluded that yoga plays a vital role as an adjuvant in the management of risk factors, disease progression and the complications of type 2 diabetes.
