Dear Thomas Cj
Egg plant is not the right herb for a diabetic person.
For Diabetic patients, Paneer doda is a renowned herb.
It brings down the sugar levels remarkably. Need to be cautious, if already taking other medicines for Diabetes.
HOW to take -- Put 8-10 pieces of flower in a glass of water and keep it overnight.
In the morning, squeeze the flowers and mix them well, Now, strain it and drink the water.
For best results, use the herb regularly.
The super effective herb to treat Diabetes is----- 'Gurmar'. Homeopathic name Gymnema Sylvestre tincture. This is the magic herb that will see you through till the end.
Take 5 drops of Gymnema Sylvestre tincture before every major meal. Measure your blood sugar every day. Take this herb for at least 3 months.

Please consult your health care provider, before using any of the remedies.
