Abstract: Diabetes mellitus is a heterogeneous metabolic disease characterized by altered carbohydrate, lipid and protein metabolism. So many traditional herbs are being used by diabetic patients to control the disease. But very few studies have been performed to investigate the efficacy of these herbs clinically. In the present study, an attempt has been made to investigate the antidiabetic activity of roots of Cyperus kyllingia Endl. (Family—Cyperaceae) and also with alcoholic extract of its roots in diabetic mice. The crude roots at (570 mg/kg, orally) and the extract of the roots at (120 mg/kg, orally) showed significant antidiabetic activity. Histological study also showed significant result.
