In herbal medicine, symptoms of the diseases can only be eased gradually, depending to stage of the treatment which directly address to the cause of the disease.

Intake of common beans (Phaseolus vulgaris), including kidney beans may reduce risk, risk of complications and treatment of diabetes, a recent study suggested.

Diabetes is a medical condition caused by insufficient insulin entering the bloodstream to regulate the glucose, as the result of cells in pancreas dying off or receptor sites clogged up by fat and cholesterol. In some cases, diabetes is also caused by allergic reactions of cells in the immune system.

Kidney beans with kidney shape, strong flavor and color of reddish brown in nature are often the excellent dietary selection with no cholesterol, but a good source of protein and minerals.

According to the Research and Graduate Studies in Food Science, School of Chemistry, although cooking induced a significant decrease of total phenolic, tannins and anthocyanins content, group fed with common bean not only showed a protection of pancreatic ß-cells but also displayed a significant reduction of blood glucose (22.8 %), triglycerides (21.9 %), total cholesterol (29.9 %) and LDL (56.1 %).

Dr. Hernández-Saavedra D, the lead author said, "The preventive-treatment group did not inhibit the increase of TNF-α(In relation of inflammation) and IL-1β(the inflammatory cytokins) whereas the treatment group did, compared to the diabetic control".

Other study in the support of bean species such as pinto, black, navy or kidney in the prevention and treatment of chronic diseases, suggested that intake of bean showed a potential health effects in reduced glycaemic stress in expression of hyperglycaemia and hyperinsulinaemia, the early stage of diabetes.

In a total of 17 men and women with type 2 diabetes controlled by metformin (n = 14) or diet/exercise (n = 3) aged 35-70 years participated in the randomized 4 × 4 crossover trial, in testing of the effect of white long grain rice control, pinto beans/rice, black beans/rice, red kidney beans/rice test meals, matched for 50 grams of available carbohydrate, after a 12 hour fasting, group treated with dark red kidney showed a attenuated glycemic response compared to rice alone.

Taking together, consumption of kidney beans as traditional foods may provide non-pharmaceutical management and treatment of type 2 diabetes and improve dietary adherence with cultural groups.
