Diabetes is an endocrine system disease characterized by high morbidity, high prevalence, and high mortality. Although the traditional medicine for treating diabetes has a good effect, its side effects are also large. Traditional Chinese medicine has also achieved good therapeutic effects in the treatment of diabetes, and the side effects of Chinese medicine are small. Coix is a medicinal and edible plant. It is used as food and medicine alone or in combination with other herbs in the early days. Its seeds have become one of the most popular Chinese herbal medicines. The coixan was extracted from Coix seed, and it was administered to diabetic mice. After five weeks of treatment, it was found to have some role in hypoglycemic. This study provides a good application prospect for Chinese medicine treatment of diabetes.
