Learning, curiosity and enthusiasm for living in health. Also consider yoga. Patients with type 2 diabetes are more likely to experience cognitive decline (1.5%) and dementia (1.6%) than healthy people. Although cognitive impairment negatively affects patients with type 2 diabetes mellitus (T2DM), it is the least addressed complication of patients with T2DM. This study attempts to examine the changes in cognitive performance of patients with T2DM and the probable factors contributing to the changes after yoga practice for 12 weeks. The mean amplitude of the N200 ERP component showed a significant group difference after the intervention, demonstrating improved neural efficiency in the process of conflict monitoring and response inhibition. Patients with T2DM showed reduced heart rate and improvement in recordings of brain electrical activity obtained by continuous stimulation of a sensory or information processing pathway, within a given context after yoga practice without any corresponding change in other parameters. of heart rate which demonstrates a general improvement in cardiac activity. Along with this yoga practice, HbA1c levels were also reduced in patients with T2DM, indicating better glycemic control. Furthermore, HbA1c levels were negatively correlated with reaction time after the intervention, indicating an impact of glycemic control on cognitive performance. Conclusion. The 12-week yoga practice improved cognitive performance by improving conflict monitoring and response inhibition processes. Furthermore, the improvement in cognitive performance after the intervention was facilitated by better glycemic control.

Thank you Just for highlighting relevant aspects. Also Yoga. Depression is one of the main causes of disability and conventional treatment has several limitations. The Integrated Yoga Module (IYM) for standard care with additional yogic education on lifestyle modification (YELM) in patients with clinical depression. AIM as an adjunct is superior to conventional medical treatment in reducing symptoms and improving positive psychological resources in clinical depression.
