Diabetes mellitus (DM) is one of the most common metabolic disorders with alarmingly increasing incidence. The condition is made even more terrifying by its proximity with comorbidities including diabetic retinopathy, diabetic nephropathy, diabetic neuropathy, etc. In Ayurveda, both single drugs and compound formulations are practiced by experienced clinicians for managing DM. Those combinations are to be brought into mainstream practice for the benefit of humanity. Here is the case report of a 42-year-old male patient diagnosed with diabetes mellitus, who was managed with an indigenous compound in the form of choorna along with lifestyle modifications for a period of two months. After the intervention, there were significant improvements in the clinical and laboratory parameters of Diabetes mellitus. This indigenous drug not only helped to reverse early DM, but also to the sustainable result in the follow up visit. The indigenous compound contains 5 drugs Salacia chinensis (Linn.) (Saptachakra), Centratherum anthelminticum (Linn.) (Aranya jeeraka), Curcuma longa (Linn.) (Haridra),  Azadiracta indica (Linn.) (Nimba)  and Trigonella foenum graecum (Linn.)  (Methika).
