Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Change in Blood Sugar and lipid profiles [ Time Frame: baseline and 6 weeks ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    Change in of blood sugar out come will be measured by Fasting Blood Sugar (FBS), Oral Glucose Tolerance Test (OGTT) and Postprandial Blood Sugar (PPBS). Change in lipid profiles are measured by Low Density Lipoprotein (LDL), Very Low Density Lipoprotein (VLDL), High Density Lipoprotein (HDL) and Total Cholesterol (TC).


Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • Clinical laboratory evaluations [ Time Frame: 0 and week 6 ] [ Designated as safety issue: Yes ]
    Electrocardiography (ECG), haematology (Complete Blood Count), biochemical tests (blood urea, and serum creatinine), liver function tests and urine routine analysis
