Diabetes mellitus is a long-term medical condition identified by high blood sugar levels. Two forms of diabetes most commonly occur. Type I diabetes occurs in children and type II diabetes is normally found in adults. Although diabetes affects the whole body's function surprisingly, it gives rise to male infertility. Diabetes causes impotency, and ejaculatory disorders and decreases libido in males. Hibiscus rosa-sinensis and camel milk both are known for their anti-diabetic properties. Both are able to deal with the oxidative stress caused by diabetes because of their antioxidant properties. Both have other properties like antibacterial, anti-inflammatory, antifungal, antimicrobial, antitumor, cardio-protective, hepato-protective etc. The crude extract of Hibiscus rosa-sinensis has insulin-secreting activity, significantly lowering the glucose level of blood in diabetic rats. Camel milk contains insulin-like protein which is also reported to positively decrease the blood sugar level.     Keywords: Diabetes mellitus, Blood glucose, Reproduction, Hibiscus rosa-sinensis, Camel milk.
