ANTIDIABETICS AND HERBAL MEDICINES OR DIETARY SUPPLEMENTS - KARELA (MOMORDICA CHARANTIA)

The blood glucose lowering effects of chlorpropamide and other antidiabetics can be increased by karela.
Karela is used to flavour foods such as curries, and also used as a herbal medicine for the treatment of diabetes mellitus. Health professionals should therefore be aware that patients may possibly be using karela as well as more orthodox drugs to control their diabetes. Irregular consumption of karela as part of the diet could possibly contribute to unexplained fluctuations in diabetic control.
