Abstract

Objective: To evaluate and synthesize evidence on the effectiveness and safety of Ayurvedic medicines for managing type-2 diabetes (T2DM).

Introduction: Several randomized controlled trials (RCTs) have been conducted to assess the effectiveness and safety of Ayurvedic medicines for managing T2DM. Systematic reviews have been conducted on this topic but need to be updated. The findings from the review will be used to develop a clinical guideline for managing T2DM by Ayurvedic practitioners in India.

Inclusion criteria: RCTs assessing the effectiveness and safety of Ayurvedic medicines for managing T2DM in adults will be included in this systematic review.

Methods: We will search for a wide range of sources to find both published and unpublished studies, including, but not limited to, MEDLINE, Embase, CINAHL, PsycINFO, Web of Science, Cochrane Central Register of Controlled Trials (CENTRAL) and Allied and Complementary Medicine Database (AMED). No language restrictions will be applied. The Joanna Briggs Institute systematic review methodology will be followed to conduct the review. Data synthesis will be conducted using narrative synthesis and meta-analyses, where appropriate.
