An anti-diabetic drug has been developed from medicinal herbs by Dr. Shayesteh Tabatabaee, faculty member of IAU, Malekan Branch.


According to ANA, the Azad News Agency, Dr. Tabatabaee said that the herbal treatment proposed in order to eliminate type 2 diabetes was indeed effective.

The IAU professor explained that type 2 diabetes is a metabolic disorder which  affects the metabolism of glucose, fat and protein. It is a major health problem on the rise in the world, causing complications like nephropathy, neuropathy, retinopathy and blindness.

Due to the high and ever-increasing prevalence of type 2 diabetes, which is influenced by various predisposing factors such as resistance to insulin, obesity, dyslipidemia, and hypertension and its complications, and the growing use of complementary therapies, especially herbal remedies and the need for countries to use of herbal medicine, Dr. Tabatabaee`s aim was to create a herbal medicine with minimal complications and low cost.

She has now patented this mixture of several herbal and natural drugs.
