Traditional remedies are gaining worldwide acceptability. In the developing country like India safe, efficient and economic indigenous remedies are gaining popularity among the urban and rural areas. Diabetes is one of the major lifestyle disease which remains without a promising management solution in conventional medicine. In Ayurveda, this disease can be largely equated to a disease process called Prameha. The Western Ghats consists of unusual flora of Sahyadri hills representing dense and diversified vegetation. The people here are largely dependent on the available natural resources for food and medicine at primary level in treatment of diabetes. Not much work has been done so far for exploration of anti diabetic activity of these medicinal plants in correlation with its mode of action in perspective of Ayurveda texts and modern literature collectively. So the paper will highlight the anti diabetic potential of some selected medicinal plants used here for diabetic treatment through available Ayurveda literature and recent researches done so far.
Keywords- Traditional medicinal plants, Western Ghats (India), Anti diabetic potential, Prameha.
