Abstract


Twenty-five type 2 diabetic volunteer patients (mean age 62 years) were recruited in a quasi-experimental study without a control group to evaluate the effects of Bauhinia forficata Link tea on lipid profiles. Participants drank the tea of 0.4% B. forficata in 200?mL of water twice a day for 3 months. The clinical parameters evaluated were cholesterol and triglycerides (mg/dL), total cholesterol (mg/dL), weight (kg), postprandial glycemia (mg/dL), and glycosylated hemoglobin (HbA1c). For the study period, statistically significant decreases in triglycerides and total cholesterol levels of 48 and 17?mg/dL, respectively, were observed. B. forficata tea as a complementary therapy in type 2 diabetic patients may help to reduce the levels of some lipid profile parameters. Further studies are suggested to evaluate the effect of the tea.
