INTRODUCTION: Ayurvedic treatments are in use to treat Diabetes Mellitus (DM), either as a stand-alone treatment or as an adjunct to conventional care. There is need for a comprehensive assessment of the efficacy and safety of Ayurvedic interventions in DM through a systematic review. Therefore present work is planned to create quality based evidence on the efficacy and safety of Ayurvedic intervention for DM. MATERIALS AND METHODS: The data for systematic review will be collected by a comprehensive search of databases will be made to get maximum research articles on clinical trials such as randomized, non-randomized controlled, multiple arm, and quasi-randomized controlled trials. The primary outcome will be treatment response on improvement in subjective criteria, i.e. associated symptoms with DM, effect on fasting blood glucose level, postprandial blood glucose level and HbA1C level. The secondary outcome will be the assessment of the health-related quality of life and safety of interventions. For the systematic review three reviewers will extract the data separately in a pre-determined format. For each included study, a narrative synthesis will be conducted. A meta-analysis will be performed if the collected data is suitable for meta-analysis. CONCLUSION: The systematic review serves as a representative of the evidence of safety and efficacy of Ayurveda interventions in treating DM. Outcome of the review may also provide scope for planning further researches. PROSPERO STUDY REGISTRATION NO: PROSPERO 2020 CRD42020159659
