Materials and Methods: Forty-five patients of Type II DM were registered from the Outpatient Department of Rasa Shastra, Sir Sunderlal Hospital, Banaras Hindu University, Varanasi.

The treatment was given for 3 months. Fasting blood sugar, postprandial sugar, serum creatinine, blood urea, lipid profile, and serum glutamic oxaloacetic transaminase and serum glutamic pyruvic transaminase levels were estimated biochemically. Results: The results of the present study reveal that LKGV can be safe and effective, alternative or adjuvant to the conventional oral hypoglycemic agent.
