Cleome gynandra L. (called as “Maman” in Riau) is a traditional medicine used for diabetes, anti-aging, anti-cancer and cardiovascular diseases prevention. This study was carried out to determine the activities of Fermented Maman on blood sugar levels in hyperglycemic male white rats. The research was an experimental research, using the Post Test Only Control Group Design, that carried out 5 months at Riau Ministry of Health Poltekkes Laboratory. The data analysis using Multivariate ANOVA and continued with Duncan multiple range test.The results of the study indicate that Fermented Maman can reduce blood sugar levels but, the metformin group had a higher reduction compared to the control group negative, positive and Fermented Maman. Metformin reduces blood sugar levels better than Fermented Maman. It is necessary to add the time of Fermented Maman and research used metformin with simultaneous fermentation in groups of male white rats with dosage variations.
