This disease is caused due to imbalance of insulinhormone secreted by beta cells of Langerhance of pancreas gland, resulting in excess of sugar in blood. Presentresearch is based on cure of diabetes by some Ayurvedic and ethnomedicinal formulations. The effectiveness ofthese formulations has been well studied for the treatment of diabetes. It has been found that use of powder of amalki(Emblica officinalis Gaertn.) and haldi (Curcuma longa L.) 2 to 3 times per day regularly is very effective in thecontrol of blood sugar. In the same way, the powder of dried leaves of neem (Azadirachta indica A. Juss) with thecombination of jamun (Eugenia jambolana L.) seeds keeps blood sugar under control. The powder of leaves ofmeetha neem (Murraya koenigii L.) and sharefa (Annona squamosa L.) is beneficial in all types of diabetes.
