The author concludes the study on Madakku Pilavai with fruitful results validating the Symptomatology and Siddha diagnostic methodology. Study on Manikkadai Nool threw up a narrow identifiable range (91/2) for Madhumegam and 9¾ for Madakku Pilavai. Nearly 60% of the cases were observed results a clinician can diagnose this study clinical entity as Madhumegam 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 stress prior to onset of disease. It can be concluded that with the genesis of Madhumegam and subsequently the Madhumegam could be the path of development of the disease. So along with medicines for control the blood glucose levels, yogam and meditation which calm the mind can be advised. Pitham humour which is the root cause of the disease was found to be elevated which confirms the literary stand point said by Sage Theran. Therefore steps should be taken to keep it under check. From the study on Neerkkuri, it was found that many cases of Madakku Pilavai had polyuria, cloudy urine and fruity odor 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 vatha pitha naadi. So presence of vatha pitha naadi in Madakku Pilavai patients should be taken as a sign of increased pitha humour which might lead on to madhu megam. If normal patients were found with pitha vatha naadi other than pithakaalam, they should be taken as pathological state and preventive measures should be adopted. With the study on udal thaathukkal, it was found that all cases (100%) had affected udal thaathukkal (all the seven). So drugs that strengthen the udal thaathukkal should be prescribed. CONCLUSION: The patients with symptoms of Madakku Pilavai mentioned by Sage Siddha Maruthuvam confirmed to majority symptoms mentioned in the modern literature of complications of Diabetes mellitus. Thus the study validated the symptomatology elucidated by Sage Madakku Pilavai and matched it with complications of Diabetes mellitus. From the study it is evident that, with naadi, manikkadai nool, neerkkuri, naa, and udal thaathukkal examination, Madakku Pilavai can be diagnosed easily and confidently. The author concludes that these diagnostic parameters can be successfully implemented by a physician at the clinical level in the diagnosis of Madakku Pilavai.
