Abstract: Soy bean (Glycine max Merrill) seeds when soaked and germinated become highly effective blood sugar regulator. This was observed in 35 volunteer type–II diabetes patients. All patients except one were taking oral hypoglycemic drugs (OHG) to control their elevated blood sugar level before they started taking soaked and germinated soybean seeds as a medicine to control their blood sugar. These patients stopped taking OHG during the period of investigation and took only soaked and germinated soybean seeds as a medicine to control their high blood sugar level. It was observed that soaked and germinated soybean seeds are more effective than the OHG. Out of these 35 patients the blood sugar of 22 patients, were observed for three months; of these 22 patients 4 patients got revived.
