Result of the Clinical Trial Study
Figure (B) shows the result of change in glycated hemoglobin after patients with type II diabetes finished the 20 days diabetes management program.
Decline in Glycated Hemoglobin(HbA1c)
Glycated Hemoglobin(HbA1c) Comparison (Value)
The glycated hemoglobin value (M=7.01, SD=1.52) of the patients was lower than that at admission (M=7.97, SD=1.79), and the difference was significant (t (58) = 10.32, p < .01). Therefore, we can conclude that after 20 days’ consumption of Natural Herbal Tea, together with appropriate diet and exercise can effectively improve the glycated hemoglobin value of diabetic patients.
