Insulin resistance plays a central role in the pathogenesis of type 2 diabetes mellitus. Ameliorating insulin resistance helps to improve glycaemic control and hence reduce the risk of development and progression of diabetic complications. The extract of Moringa oleifera has been shown to improve hyperglycaemia, however, little is known on its effect on insulin resistance and beta-cell function. The objective of this study was to determine the effect of the ethanolic leaf extract of Moringa… Expand
