The seeds family leguminosae that are cultivated in India, Egypt and North Africa are used in gastrointestinal disorder, gout and diabetes.1
There is a relationship between chemical composition and nutritional value of seeds through the germination. The samples were taken for analysis in a day for a week. The result was found to cause reduction in dry matter content while other fibers showed ascending relationship. In other way the percentage of lipid was reduced at the last 2 days. The conclusion show allows germinating for the first 6 days before used are useful to improve the biological and nutritive values.2

Exclusion criteria: presence of debilitating diseases, documented GIT diseases, impairment of vital organs, receiving drugs that can affect the metabolic control except the known pharmacologic oral antidiabetic agents.
Subjects were divided into 5 groups, 20 patients each:
Group (C): The control group receiving diets recommended by the Diabetes Institute with no other dietary supplementation.

Group (GF): This group was given germinated fenugreek seeds as a dietary supplementation.
Group (PF): This group was given powdered fenugreek seeds as a dietary supplementation.
Group (DF): This group was given defatted fenugreek seeds in powder form as a dietary supplementation.
Fenugreek was received in a daily dose of fifteen grams t.d.s (three times daily) with meals.
All patients of all groups were submitted to clinical examination at admission.
Laboratory tests were performed upon admission, after the first, second, third and fourth week of the study. Investigation was done for the following parameters: Serum glucose level (fasting and postprandial), serum total cholesterol, serum triglycerides, serum HDL-C (high-density lipoprotein-cholesterol), serum LDL-C (low-density lipoprotein-cholesterol), serum VLDL-C (very low-density lipoprotein-cholesterol) were calculated.
