In recent years, diabetes has become a major health concern. India is referred to as the diabetes capital of the world. There are plenty of chemical agents available to monitor and treat diabetic patients, but up to this date, no complete recovery from diabetes has been recorded. Many herbal plants with hypoglycemic properties are known from around the world as an alternative to these synthetic agents; which is a natural remedy to keep the blood sugar under control by consuming vegetables & herbs in our diet. Such medicinal plants & their herbal preparation with proven antidiabetic and related beneficial effects were used in the treatment of diabetes in rats. The effect of polyherbal drug Anti-hyperglycemic activity is studied in rats against alloxaninduced diabetes. This polyherbal drug consists of 16 antidiabetic plants. Disorders in diabetes-induced glucose metabolism have been shown to be regulated. The present study was conducted in the Dept. of Pharmacology and Dept. of Biochemistry at Central Animal House Facility of the SBH Govt Medical College, Dhule, in collaboration with Datta Meghe Medical College, (Datta Meghe Institute of Medical Sciences Sawangi, Meghe) Nagpur, Maharashtra, India. After the treatment, fasting blood glucose, plasma insulin and glycosylated hemoglobin (HbA1c) were determined in normal and experimental rats. Polyherbal mixture was seen to be an effective and safe method for management of diabetes which reduces blood sugar levels & shows positive effect in altering blood glucose levels.
