The prevalence of type 2 diabetes has reached to an epidemic proportion in Sri Lanka. The need for achieving better control of blood glucose level has been evident in diabetes management. However it is not easy to achieve this goal in a large proportion of patients. This is partly due to limitations of currently available pharmacological agents which stimulate research on novel anti-diabetic agents with different mechanisms. Digestive enzymes have been targeted as potential avenues for…

Erratum to: A review of α-amylase inhibitors on weight loss and glycemic control in pathological state such as obesity and diabetes
TLDR
The effects of pseudosaccharides, proteinaceous, and polyphenolic inhibitors, particularly human pancreatic α-amylase (HPA) inhibitors, are investigated to investigate their effects on weight loss and control of blood glucose levels in diabetic patients.

Medicinal plants in Suriname: hypotensive effect of Gossypium barbadense
TLDR
Fraction II (frII) of the crude extract of G. barbadense showed a dose‐dependent hypotensive effect in anaesthetized rats, and in‐vitro experiments revealed that atropine did not antagonize the contraction of the ileum of the rat.
Enhancement of insulin sensitivity in adipocytes by ginger
TLDR
In the gingerol‐treated cells, insulin‐sensitive glucose uptake was increased and it is expected that ginger enhance the insulin‐sensitivity, and improve chronic disease, such as diabetes.
