  Background and Objectives: Diabetes mellitus is a chronic illness which leads to disability, hospitalization and eventually death. There is an emerging trend worldwide for patients to use complementary and alternative medications (CAMs) in an attempt to improve the outcomes of their illnesses as well as general well-being. This study aimed to assess the attitude and the popularity of using complementary and alternative medications and its perceived effect in diabetic control among Libyans adult who were diagnosed with type-2diabetes mellitus. Materials and Methods: A cross-sectional quantitative study was conducted among 192 adult diabetic patients, who are still under follow-up in two medical centers, Libya. Descriptive statistic and bivariate analysis were performed to assess all the included variables and to identify the association between all variables and the outcome. Results: The mean age of the participants was 46.21±11.87. Most of the respondents were males (56.8%). The majority used CAM (64.6%) and the most common CAM used was cinnamon (41.9%). Factors associated with perceived sugar control were type of pharmaceutical drugs used, perceived health condition, satisfaction with CAM, types of CAM used and frequency of CAM consumption (p<0.05). Conclusion: CAM is used commonly among most of the Libyan in Zliten city as more than 60% use CAM to control glucose level.

  Medicinal plants and herbal preparations are gaining renowned interest in scientific communities nowadays due to their reliable pharmacological actions and affordability to common people which makes them effective in control of various diseases. The present study was aimed to evaluate the antibacterial activities of aqueous, methanol and ethanol extracts against gram positive ad gram negative microorganism. The combination effects of Polygonum minus methanol extracts with streptomycin sulfate against gram positive Bacillus subtilis which showed 16.7% were synergy (2 out of 12 combinations), 16.7% were additive and (2 out of 12 combinations), 66.7% were indifferent (8 out of 12 combinations). While, combination effects between P. minus ethanol extract with streptomycin sulfate against Bacillus subtilis indicated that about 50% (6 out of 12 combinations) were antagonistic, 16.67% (2 out of 12 combinations) were indifferent and 33.33% (4 out of 12 combinations) were additive. The finding of this study concluded that gram-positive bacteria were more susceptible than the gram-negative and the combination effects between P. minus ethanol extract with streptomycin sulfate may lead to the development of a new and vital antimicrobial drugs against simultaneous infections of gram positive and gram negative microorganism.
