Syndrome-X has emerged as an area of special interest to medical faculty as it houses worst lifestyle pathologies in one patient. There being unknown common ground to Diabetes Mellitus, Hypertension, Obesity & dyslipidemia, the nomenclature adopted is Syndrome-X. As these diseases are observed to be led by Diabetes Mellitus, the other names of the syndrome are Metabolic Syndrome & Insulin resistant syndrome. This is why the Ayurvedic name attributed is 'Santarpanottha Madhumeha Vishesha'. The present study was aimed at observing & evaluating the common Nidana along with a comparative clinical study of two herbo-mineral compounds. 100 diagnosed patients of Syndrome-X were selected and randomly divided in two groups of fifty patients each; Group-A receiving Compound - A, Whereas Group-B receiving Compound - A with Medohara (Navak) Guggulu respectively. The vehicle for both the groups was Dashamoola decoction in a dose of 40 ml twice a day for 45 days. It was observed that most patients in group -B had significant improvement in Shrama, Prabhoot mootrata, Daurbalya, Vibandha, Kanthatalu shosha, Pipasadhikya & Sada.
