Abstract

Mayaphala (Quercus infectoria) is reported to have antidiabetic, insulinotropic and antioxidant activities in animal experiments. Therefore this clinical study was carried out on a group of 30 patients of diabetes mellitus type 2 (Avrita Madhumeha) to evaluate its role in its management. The results of this study showed that MÄyÄphala (Quercus infectoria) provided significant relief in the symptoms of the patients and significantly reduced the fasting and postprandial blood sugar. It also insignificantly increased serum insulin also.
