ROLE OF MAYAPHALA IN MANAGEMENT OF RESISTANT DIABETES MELLITUS TYPE2
Bhava and Mandip (2015) carried out a clinical study on mild to moderate cases of type-2 diabetes mellitus and reported that Mayaphala (Quercus infectoria) provided significant relief in their symptoms and also significantly reduced the fasting and postprandial blood sugar. Modern oral anti-diabetic drugs when used for a long time require increase in the dose and then a stage come when they become unable to control the blood sugar. Such patienst have no other option but to shift to injectable insulin. Therefore, the present study was planned to evaluate the role of Mayaphala in such modern anti-diabetic drug resistant patients of diabetes-II. The results of this study showed that concomitant administration of Mayaphala and modern antidiabetic drugs significantly relieved the symptoms and significantly reduced the fasting and post prandial blood sugar of the patients. It also insignificantly increased the blood serum insulin level of those patients.Key words: Mayaphala, Quercus infectoria, Resistant Diabetes mellitus type-2, Madhumeha,
