Diabetes mellitus is one of the major health concerns that have attracted the urgent medical attention worldwide. Many evidences has suggested that there is involvement of different signaling pathways and GPCR is involved in the emergence of type 2 diabetes, and targeting them can result in the pivotal development of therapeutic drugs for the treatment of diabetes. Many drugs have developed resistance against the insulin, as research have evidently proved that overcoming such insulin resistance and modifying the abnormal signaling pathways can be a major therapeutic target for the treatment of diabetes. Many anti-diabetic drugs have the ability to provide neuroprotective activity, anticancer and immunomodulatory protection that help to combat the associated risk factors arise due to diabetes. We have focused in this about the effect of different anti-diabetic drugs and to demonstrate how much efficiently these drugs are playing roles in the treatment of diabetes. This study could be helpful in regard of future perspectives to design accurate and best drug for treatment of this metabolic disorder.
