The physiological aspects of Ayurvedic concepts are equally important to pathological and clinical Ayurveda. In Ayurvedic texts various methods of examination of patient (Rogi Pariksha) as well as disease (Roga Pariksha) has been described separately. Tail Bindu Pariksha as described in yoga ratnakar is one such method of urine examination. The Tail Bindu Mutra Pariksha using Sesame oil is a unique technique for urine examination, which is diagnostic as well as prognostic in nature and provides information about the disease and patient too. In the present era of life style disorders, Diabetes mellitus stands at top worldwide. In this paper, the practical aspects of this old technique “Tail Bindu Mutra Pariksha” have been described in the patients of Diabetes mellitus (Madhumeha) particularly. The Test was carried out in 10 patients of Madhumeha (Diabeties mellitus) to look for the prognosis of disease. Various aspects of Mutra Pariksha, such as spreading time, shape and direction of Tail bindu have been considered in “Tila Tail Pariksha”.
