According to Ayurveda, there are twenty types of pramehas, which are divided into three categories related to the three doshas of vata, pitta and kapha.  As each disease is related to a dosha, each type of prameha is related to one of the doshas.  Four are vataja (originating from vata) pramehas, six are pittaja (originating from pitta) pramehas and ten are kaphaja (originating from kapha)  pramehas. Diabetes mellitus is one of the vataja pramehas.  Ayurveda gives top priority to lifestyle change in its treatment, giving less importance to medications and dietary regimen.  Change of mental attitude, an active and healthy lifestyle, yogasanas like paschimottasana and complete dietary control are advised in that order.
