Detailed Study Description

Diabetes mellitus, involving rise in blood sugar levels, has shown to be a highly prevalent disease. Treatments and treatment regimens include combinations of oral anti-diabetic drugs (OADs), anti-hypertensive medications and anti-dyslipidemic agents, but these have been less than successful in managing their respective disease targets with clinical goals. Now-a-days, the treatment strategies for diabetes mellitus type 2 which are opted by general population include natural supplements. This choice is based upon the involvement of very less side effects along with high effectiveness of the natural supplements as compared to the synthetic medications. One of those natural supplements is fenugreek seeds extract i.e. Fenfuro which has been used as a nutraceutical in the present study for the management of type 2 diabetes mellitus.

Fenugreek has been extensively used as a source of anti-diabetic compounds from long time. Thus, Fenfuro, prepared from fenugreek seeds extract, is supposed to have anti-diabetic properties as well. Previous studies on fenugreek seeds extract have shown effective and safe anti-diabetic and anti-hyperlipidemic properties of it. It has shown to decrease blood glucose levels as well as lipid profile of the diabetic patients.

In this proposed study, Fenugreek seed extract will be used as an add-on to the existing therapy in patients with type-2 diabetes. The efficacy and safety of the extract will be evaluated using standard methodology.
