Treatment of Type 1 Diabetes: In type 1 diabetes, cells in pancreas do not produce insulin, thus leading to increase in blood and urine glucose, as the sugar cannot be absorbed by body.

Gymnema stimulates Islets of Langerhans - cells in pancreas which secretes insulin and hence finds use in treatment of type 1 diabetics or insulin dependent diabetes. An in-vitro study confirmed that extract of gymnenma leaves increases membrane permeability of cells that secrete insulin. A similar study found efficacy of Gymnema leaf extract treatment on patients with insulin dependent diabetes mellitus and its use in treatment of type 1 diabetes.

A human study with extract from leaves of Gymnema found effective in controlling hyperglycaemia in Type 2 diabetics patients. In the study, long term dosage of Gymnema supplements resulted in reduction of blood glucose and reduced need for conventional medicines.
