Implication for health policy/practice/research/medical education:

The limitation of available antidiabetic agents in terms of efficacy or safety coupled with the emergence of the disease into global epidemic have encouraged alternative therapy for the management of diabetes more safely and efficiently. Although alternative therapies with antidiabetic activity have been researched and used extensively, however, medical students either do not study these courses or their length of the study is too short. Therefore, complementary and alternative medicine is needed to be widely taught in medical schools and widely practiced in hospitals.
