Diabetes is a disorder of protein, carbohydrate and fat metabolism and can represent an absolute insulin deficiency, impaired release of insulin by the pancreatic β cells, inadequate or defective insulin receptors, or production of inactive insulin (Porth, 1998).
A reading of the blood sample taken after an overnight fast less than 100 mg/dL (5.6 mmol/L) is normal. A level from 100 to 125 mg/dL (5.6 to 6.9 mmol/L) is considered prediabetes. If your fasting blood sugar is 126 mg/dL (7 mmol/L) or higher on two separate tests, you have diabetes.
Abelmoachus esculentus fruit (Okra) is used traditionally to treat diabetes.
The Okra is sliced, soaked in water and kept open outside the house overnight.
The patient should drink the water extract of okra first early in the morning.
It is traditionally believed that the therapy effectively reduces blood sugar and keeps diabetes at bay.
The antidiabetic property of okra is one of its numerous medicinal uses.
