Background: Diabetes is a chronic condition in that Type II diabetes (Formerly called as Non-Insulin Dependent) is the most prevalent, generally affecting adults, diabetes frequently reduces HDL (good) cholesterol levels while raising triglycerides and LDL (bad) cholesterol levels. Both of these factors raise the likelihood of heart disease and stroke. The Indian system of traditional medicine, Ayurveda, also uses curry leaf as a common treatment. Curry leaves can prevent several diseases, including type 2 diabetes and heart disease, because they are rich in antioxidants like beta-carotene ,also rich in fibre and vitamin C. Objectives: To determine the effectiveness of curry leaves powder on reducing blood glucose and lipid profile among the clients with Type II diabetes with mild elevated lipid level in the experimental group. To compare the post-test level of blood glucose and lipid profile between the experimental and control group. Methodology: Research approach: quantitative approach, quasi experimental research design was used for 60 samples by Nonprobability purposive sampling technique. Result: on comparing the pre and post-test of blood glucose and lipid profile in relation to administering of curry leaves powder among Type II Diabetic Patients in experimental group, the percentage of reduction for fasting blood glucose is 5.72%, For Postprandial blood sugar is 6.39%, for total Cholesterol is 3.68%, for HDL the increased rate is 7.13%, for LDL the decreased percentage is 6.36%, and for Triglyceride the decrease percentage is 9.04%.
