Abstract

Background: Increasing blood sugar and hyperlipidemia in could deteriorate the late complications in diabetic patients. Hence, this study aimed to evaluate the herbal combination effects of Securigera securidaca, Vaccinium Arctostaphylos, Citrullus Colocynthis and Coriandrum sativum on triglyceride level in pre-diabetic elderlies. Materials and Methods: In a single-blind randomized controlled trial study, 60 pre-diabetic individuals aged between 60 to 70 years with a triglyceride level of 180-250 mg/dl were selected. They were divided into two groups (drug and placebo) randomly. The drug group received a diet including 500 mg capsules of herbal blend once daily, and the placebo group received diet including placebo capsules (500 mg flour) in the same period. The serum triglyceride level was evaluated after 30 days in both groups. Finally, the SPSS software version 18 was used for data analysis. Results: The mean triglyceride level, between before the intervention and afterward were not significantly different, and the mean changes in triglyceride level in total showed no significant differences as well. Likewise, the comparison between the mean triglyceride level before and after the intervention, independently in drug group or placebo revealed no statically significant differences. Conclusion: There is no adequate evidence for the efficiency of this 30-day period intervention of herbal blend. Therefore it is recommended to perform further studies using different drug dosage and period of consumption to get more conclusive results about the potential effectiveness of these herbal medications on elderly’s triglyceride level.
