The author concludes the study on Madhu Piramiam with fruitful results validating the Symptomatology and Siddha diagnostic methodology. Study on Manikkadai Nool threw up a narrow identifiable range (9 1/2) for Madhu Piramiam. Nearly 60%of cases were observed with the Manikadai Nool of 9 1/2. So with all the symptomatology and the observed results a clinician can diagnose this Study clinical entity as Madhu Piramiam with confidence. Mental stress is said to be an important factor precipitating the Diabetes or Madhumegam. In this study also most of the patients were having mental agony prior to onset of disease. As mental agony is said to be one of the foremost causes for Piramiam, it can be concluded that with the genesis of Madhumegam and subsequently the Madhu Piramiam could be the path of development of this disease. So along with medicines for the disease, yoga and meditation which calms the mind can be advised. Pitham humour which is the root cause of the disease was found to be elevated which confirms the literary standpoint said by Sage Theran. Therefore steps should be taken to keep it under check. From the study on Neerkkuri (Examination of Urine), it was found that many (93.33 %) cases of Madhu Piramiam had Polyuria, Cloudy urine and had bad odour in urine. So Neerkkuri can be taken as one of the significant diagnostic tool for diagnosing this disease. From the study on Naadi (Pulse), it was found that majority of patients were with Pithavatha Naadi. So presence of Pithavatha naadi in Madhumegam patients should be taken as a sign of increased Pitha humour which might lead on to Madhu Pramiam and drugs for balancing Pitha naadi should be selected. If normal patients were found with Pithavatha naadi other than Pitha kaalam, they should be taken as pathological state and proper preventive measures should be adopted. In the study, patients with age between 20 and 60 were opted and in these selected cases, 66.57% of cases fell under a range of 51 to 60 years and 0% of cases fell under 21-30. That is, in the study nobody in Vathakaalam had the disease. Almost all the cases fell under Pithakaalam. So people in Pithakaalam period are more prone to develop the disease. Hence people entering this Pithakaalam can be advised to take preventive measures.
