Abstract :

Diabetes mellitus resulted in 1.5 million deaths in 2012, making it the 8th leading cause of death as estimated by the World Health Organization (WHO).Diabetic neuropathy is the most common secondary complication related to diabetes mellitus and is associated with elevated pain,nerve fiber degeneration,and slow nerve conduction velocity. Phytotherapy has been emerging with different treatment regimens for various diseases having fewer side effects than synthetic drugs.The talk will discussthe previous studies on effects of quercetin on pain sensation and the neuroprotective effect of Naringin. Future studies will focus on the reduction of tramadol dose in alloxanated mice when administered along with flavonoidal combination.
