Diabetes, especially type 2 diabetes mellitus (T2DM), the prevalence continues to increase, with the
largest increase occurring in low and middle income countries. The active content of aloe vera functions as
antioxidants, flavonoids, regulates body weight and antihyperglycemic, namely acemannan and glucomannan,
which are included in the Liliaceae family and are succulent plants, shrubs, xerophytes commonly used to
treat wound healing, microbial infections, skin diseases and inflammation. This study aims to analyze the
effect of aloe vera juice before meals on fasting blood sugar levels in T2DM patients with an analytical
study. Pre-post Test Control Group Design was used in the research design. The subjects were given aloe
vera juice before lunch in the treatment group while the control group was given mineral water. Based on the
results of statistical tests, there was a significance (p value = 0.022) in the aloe vera juice group and in the
control group p value = 0.094. There is an effect of giving aloe vera juice to T2DM patients who are given
lunch while there is no effect in the control group who is given mineral water. Further research on the effect
of pre-meal aloe vera juice on cholesterol is recommended.
