Summary Diabetic neuropathic pain is an important microvascular complication in diabetes mellitus and oxidative stress plays a vital role in associated neural and vascular complications. The present study investigated the effect of fenugreek seed powder in type II diabetes (high fat diet fed/low dose streptozotocin) induced diabetic neuropathy in male Sprague-Dawley rats. Diabetic rats exhibited a significant hyperalgesic behavior to thermal & noxious stimuli (Formalin 0.5%) when compared to…

Scientific Study on Trigonella Foenum-Graecum (Fenu Greek) with Special Reference to its Preclinical Study on Antidiabetic Effect

Although earlier work on the hypoglycemic effect of Fenugreek ( Trigonella foenum-graecum L. seed) extract have been carried out in many studies [1-9]. The present paper is a collective scientific

Involvement of NO–cGMP pathway in anti-hyperalgesic effect of PDE5 inhibitor tadalafil in experimental hyperalgesia

TLDR
In carrageenan- and diabetes-induced hyperalgesia, TAD and L-NAME significantly increased paw withdrawal latencies (PWLs) as compared to the control group, suggesting an important role of NO–cGMP pathway in TAD-induced anti-hyperalgesic effect.

Plants Used in the Management of Diabetic Complications

TLDR
An attempt has been made to review various natural substances with aldose reductase inhibitory activity and their role in management of diabetic complications.

Antihyperglycaemic activity of Musa sapientum flowers: effect on lipid peroxidation in alloxan diabetic rats

TLDR
The study shows that banana flower extract (BFEt) has an antihyperglycaemic action and the decrease in thiobarbituric acid reactive substances (TBARS) and the increase in reduced glutathione peroxidase (GSH, GSH‐Px), superoxide dismutase (SOD) and catalase (CAT) clearly shows the antioxidant property of BFEt.

Effect of fenugreek seeds on intravenous glucose disposition in non‐insulin dependent diabetic patients

TLDR
It is suggested that fenugreek can improve peripheral glucose utilization which contributes to an improvement in glucose tolerance and may exert its hypoglycaemic effect by acting at the insulin receptor as well as at the gastrointestinal level.

TLDR
Vanadate and fenugreek seeds showed an encouraging antioxidant property and can be valuable candidates in the treatment of the reversal of the complications of diabetes.

Restoration of ultrastructural and biochemical changes in alloxan-induced diabetic rat sciatic nerve on treatment with Na3VO4 and Trigonella—a promising antidiabetic agent

TLDR
Results suggest that lower doses of Na3VO4 may be used in combination with TSP as an efficient antidiabetic agent to effectively control the long-term complications of diabetes in tissues like peripheral nerve.

TLDR
Investigations on the effects of different histological subfractions of the seeds have shown that antidiabetic properties are contained in the fibre rich high density part, which is at least partly due to gastro-intestinal effects of these fibres.
