Diabetes is a metabolic disease that has attained a pandemic status in recent times.
Though synthetic drugs have been helpful in the management of the more prevalent type II diabetes, their notable and serious side effects pose a limit to their usage.
The cost of drug management of diabetes is high, making it unaffordable to a great majority of poor rural dwellers who resort to herbal medicines as alternative.
These have necessitated a turn-around in recent times to search for alternative and complementary approach to diabetes therapy among the plethora of our flora.
This book presents an overview of diabetes and its management strategies, especially the use of medicinal plants.
It is hoped that the book will serve as an encyclopedia of plants and herbs that are used traditionally for their anti-diabetic effects.
It is also hoped that researchers, principal investigators, postgraduate, postdoctoral and undergraduate students of pharmacy, botany, chemistry, medicine and other allied fields, clinicians, patients and the general populace will find this book an invaluable resource material in their quest for herbal alternatives to diabetes management.
