The present study was conducted to elucidate the role of a new, anti-diabetic, herbal drug D-400 on the regulation of glucose levels in blood and associated parameters in diabetic rats. Blood glucose levels were evaluated at the intervals of 1, 2 and 4 weeks. Treatment of diabetic rats with D-400 brought the raised glucose levels to within normal limits, Moreover, glycogen levels which were found to be suppressed in diabetic state also became significantly elevated following D-400 treatment. Above all, in vitro 14C- glucose uptake by liver slices which was significantly decreased In diabetic rats was also brought to within normal levels by D-400.
