Diabetic patient tend to suffer from lower extremity complication that contribute to the occurence of diabetic foot ulcer. Smallanthus sonchifolius or yacon leaves extract has been used as an alternative medicine for diabetes and also showed antibacterial activity. This research aims to obtain the antihyperglycemic and diabetic wound healing activity of yacon leaves extract. Diabetic condition of rat was induced by streptozotocin (45 mg/kg bw) and nicotinamide (110 mg/kg bw). Rats were then allowed to develop diabetes for 21 days. A biopsy punch then was used to create a wound. Yacon leaves extract were administered by oral and topical for 14 day. The serum glucose level and diameter of the wound were measured every week, and histopatology study of the skin was conducted at the end of the study. Oral administration of yacon leaves extract (150 mg/kg bw) together with topical administration showed antihyperglycemic as well as diabetic wound healing activities comparable to the reference drugs (glibenclamide oral and nebacetin cream).
