Introduction: Diabetes mellitus is a progressive metabolic disease and if left untreated, it is associated with failure of various organs. The search of safer antidiabetic agents leads to research of traditional medicinal plants. Objective: This study aimed to determine the effect of Abelmoschus esculentus water on the postprandial blood sugar among healthy normal human subjects. Method: Method used for this study is randomized open-label study. Normal healthy volunteers ages 20-60 years were recruited at Ospital ng Maynila Medical Center. After an overnight fast, FBS were recorded. They were then randomized to Okra water and placebo. Both groups were also fed a standard meal in addition to the water of their respective groups. Capillary blood glucose was measured after 2 hours and 4 hours. The difference in the blood glucose of both groups was compared. Results: The mean random blood sugar of the subjects after intake of standard meal 2 hour postprandial in okra water group (109.92±9.45 mg/dL) was greater than in the placebo group (108.35±9.93 mg/dL), but not statistically significant (p>0.05). Also, the mean RBS 4 hours postprandial was less in okra water group than in placebo group (95.23±6.99 versus 96.40±9.13 mg/dL) but was also not statistically significant (p>0.05). Overall, the mean blood sugar of the okra water group from baseline to postprandial had no significant difference as compared to placebo. Conclusion: Contrary to the previous animal studies, this present study showed no significant difference on the postprandial blood sugar level on subjects given with A. esculentus water as compared to placebo.
