Meditative Movements for Patients with Type 2 Diabetes: A Systematic Review and Meta-Analysis.

Conclusions: The results demonstrated a favorable effect or tendency of meditative movements to improve blood glucose and blood lipid levels in patients with type 2 diabetes mellitus. The special effects of meditative movements in type 2 diabetes mellitus patients need further research. PMID: 32089725 [PubMed]

Authors: Zhao J, Li Y, Sun M, Xin L, Wang T, Wei L, Yu C, Liu M, Ni Y, Lu R, Bao T, Zhang L, Wu Y, Fang Z Abstract Objective: The aim of this study is to investigate the implication of the Chinese herbal formula (CHF) Shenzhu tiaopi Granule (STG) in type 2 diabetes mellitus (T2DM) and discuss the mechanisms by which STG regulates the gut microbiota. Method: Goto-Kakizaki (GK) rats and age-matched Wistar (W) rats were acclimatized for 1 week. The GK rats were randomly divided into 3 groups and orally gavaged with saline (model group, M), acarbose (acarbose group, A), and STG (granule of CHF group, G; the compone...

Authors: Jia Y, Chen L Abstract Objective: To evaluate the hypoglycemic effect of Picris japonica Thunb (Asteraceae) on KK-Ay mice. Methods: The hypoglycemic effect of Picris japonica aqueous extract (PJE) in a spontaneous type 2 diabetic model (KK-Ay mice) was studied in the present research. PJE was administrated at doses of 700 mg/kg and 350 mg/kg (calculated as crude herb) for 14 days and blood glucose, oral glucose tolerance test, plasma insulin level, and blood lipid were evaluated. Meanwhile, Rosiglitazone was used for the positive control. Results: It was found the PJE treatment significantly reduce...

CONCLUSION: Our data suggest that silymarin supplements have beneficial effects on metabolic status and oxidative stress among patients with T2DM. However, there is currently insufficient evidence to make firm conclusions about the full efficacy of supplementation. PMID: 30477860 [PubMed - in process]

Authors: Cai Y, Wang Y, Zhi F, Xing QC, Chen YZ Abstract Treating type 2 diabetes mellitus (T2DM) using thiazolidinediones and biguanides can present several challenges for patients. Sanggua Drink (SGD) is a commonly used agent in traditional Chinese medicine, and it consists of Folium Mori, Fructus Momordicae Charantiae, Radix Puerariae Lobatae, and Rhizoma Dioscorea. The hypoglycemic effects and mechanisms of SGD extracts on insulin resistance in diabetic rats were investigated. SGD (1.24 g/kg orally) was verified in T2DM rats induced by a high-fat diet and streptozotocin. The results showed that SGD treat...

Authors: Duan B, Zhao Z, Lin L, Jin J, Zhang L, Xiong H, Ta N, Gao T, Mei Z Abstract The aim of this study was to investigate the antidiabetic effects of a Tibetan medicine, Tang-Kang-Fu-San (TKFS), on experimental type 2 diabetes mellitus (T2DM) rats and to explore its underlying mechanisms. Firstly two major chemical compositions of TKFS, gallic acid and curcumin, were characterized by HPLC fingerprint analysis. Next T2DM in rats was induced by high-fat diet and a low-dose streptozotocin (STZ 35 mg/kg). Then oral gavage administration of three different doses of TKFS (0.3 g/kg, 0.6 g/kg, and ...

(RGL) have been used traditionally as a herbal medicine in Korean medicine. Using LC/Q-TOF was performed to profile the two herbal medicines and the mixture of LJR and RGL (JAL2, ratio 1 : 1). We performed oral glucose tolerance test (OGTT) and plasma GLP-1 and insulin secretion by multiplex assays to investigate antidiabetic effects of LJT, RGL, and JAL2 in db/db mice, the mice model of type 2 diabetes mellitus (T2DM...

CONCLUSION: The study demonstrated that daily intake of this PHF decreased the glycemic level and improved lipid homeostasis, while maintaining the other serum biochemical levels to the normal, and therefore it may be useful for the patients with Type-2 diabetes. This trial is registered in the Clinical Trials Registry - India (CTRI) (CTRI/2014/03/004490). PMID: 26275648 [PubMed - in process]
