To Substantiate the claims of Ayurvedic classics, animal experimentation with modern technology has been carried out in this paper. Various methods have been described for induction diabetes Mellitus or any other disease. Now it is the duty of an Ayurvedist to select the suitable method on the guidelines of Ayurvedic aetiology to produce a condition stimulating to Prameha (Madhumeha) and the best suitable method (Folin-Wu) for estimating the sugar content of blood is adopted. Besides this one must do experiment in all species and should confirm the finding by clinical evaluation. Side by side toxicity studies are also necessary.
