Diabetes mellitus is one of the most prevalent metabolic conditions and a leading cause of death in recent years. Obesity and a poor lifestyle are determined to be the primary causes of diabetes. Studies and research are being conducted to learn how to treat and cure this condition. The main drawback of taking oral hypoglycemic drugs, which are typically prescribed to treat diabetes, is that they might have some unfavorable side effects. But, the herbal medications due to their natural origins and lower rate of side effects are now being used widely in the treatment of such diseases. Herbal medicines have experienced an exponential growth and popularity over the past few years in both developed and developing nations.A number of studies have been done already in different states of North East and a comprehensive review was conducted to gather knowledge on the traditional medicines used to treat diabetes mellitus in North East India. This study provides a significant resource for future research, drug discovery, and the development of alternative medicines for treating diabetes mellitus by consolidating the knowledge of native medicinal plants from North East India that may have ant diabetic effects. The scope, methods, important findings, and possible ramifications of a study on native medicinal herbs of northeastern India that are employed as ant diabetic medicines are highlighted in this abstract.
