Research has shown that in type 2 diabetes, especially in obesity-linked diabetes, the beta cells of the pancreas are not able to produce adequate insulin for the body's needs. This arises partially due to decreased beta-cell mass. In adults, pancreatic beta-cell mass in adults is subject to several factors such as beta-cell replication, neogenesis, hypertrophy, and survival. Loss of beta-cell mass in addition to beta cell dysfunction is a major factor in the onset of type 2 diabetes.
Diabecon a herbal formulation of herbs such as Gymnema sylvestre, Momordica charantia, Pterocarpus marsupium, Commiphora wightii, Tinospora cordifolia, Boerhaavia diffusa and others, helps to regenerate beta-cells especially in the pancreas and to protect them from oxidative damage. Diabecon also increases the c-peptide level. Diabecon acts like insulin and is useful for both newly diagnosed patients as well as patients who are already taking oral hypoglycaemic agents.
