Diabetes mellitus is a syndrome characterized by chronic hyperglycemia, due to absolute or relative deficiency or diminished effectiveness of circulating insulin. It is the most common serious metabolic disease. Diabetes mellitus has been recognized as a clinical syndrome since ancient times and remains a crippling global health problem today. Diabetes may be divided into type 1 and type 2. Type 1 diabetes is caused by deficiency of insulin production, while type 2 diabetes is characterized by insulin resistance. The high medicinal treatment cost of diabetes, has led to a growing interest in alternative therapies for diabetes management. All the findings of this review paper highlighted the effectiveness of medicinal plants, the effectiveness of exercise therapy, diet and other lifestyle treatments for preventing type 2 diabetes and reducing mortality and morbidity among persons who are at an increased risk of developing the disease.
