Abstract

ABSTRACT
Objective: The present study was aimed to assess the role of vestibular stimulation in the management of diabetes care.
Methods: We carried out the present study in 83-year-old man with 20 years history of Type 2 diabetes. Controlled vestibular stimulation was
achieved by swinging on a swing (back to front direction). Blood Pressure and Blood glucose levels were measured by standard methods.
Results: Fasting blood glucose and blood pressure levels came down significantly after controlled vestibular stimulation.
Conclusion: The present study confirmed the useful role of vestibular stimulation in the control of diabetes mellitus. We recommend a further
detailed study to elucidate the therapeutic value of controlled vestibular stimulation in diabetes care.
Keywords: Controlled vestibular stimulation, Diabetes care, Physiological intervention.
