1. Follow up for 5 to 10 years to show that it is possible to change the trend, show a decrease in the number of Diabetes incidences, prevent secondary complications  and also possibly  "stop diabetes".

2. Yoga with its holistic approach as a science of Holistic living featured by stress-free life style can effectively tackle this organic metabolic syndrome as evidenced by our collaborative research work in Royal Free hospital.
