Abstract


AIMS: To evaluate the effect of Averrhoa carambola infusion in blood glucose levels of patients with Diabetes Mellitus Type 2.
METHODS: This clinical trial studied 22 patients, divided in test group (11 patients who drank the tea of Averrhoa carambola leaves) and control group (11 patients who did not drink the tea), which were monitored over a period of three months. To analyze the blood glucose levels, blood dosage was done every 15 days.
RESULTS: After three months, the blood glucose levels in the group that ingested the tea of leaves of Averrhoa carambola did not differ from those of the test group. During the trial period the renal function was monitored by seric creatinine dosage, which remained unchanged in both groups.
CONCLUSIONS: This study did not detect effects of the tea of Averrhoa carambola leaves on blood glucose levels of patients with diabetes mellitus Type 2.
