    Introduction: Apple cider vinegar (ACV) is made from fermented apple juice, it is used for reducing cholesterol, regulating blood pressure, sore throats, to get rid of toxins, arthritis, osteoporosis, stimulate thinking and so on. The aim of this study is to determine the effects of ACV among diabetic and obese individuals. Materials and Methods: A total of 10 diabetic patients (mean 140.6 + 2.13 mg/dl; range 105–156 mg/dl) of age group of 45–57 years and 10 obese patients (body mass index [BMI] 27.4 + 0.33 kg/m2 ; range 25–31.2 kg/m2 ) of age group of 18–59 years were made to drink 20 ml ACV in 200 ml water every day before bed. This was continued for 30 days regularly. The fasting blood glucose level of each patient was measured using glucometer before the experiment was conducted in case of diabetic patients. BMI of the patient was used as a parameter to note the weight change before and after consumption of ACV. Results: The BMI of before and after consumption of ACV was 27.4 ± 0.33 and 26.9 ± 0.32, we can observe the significant decrease in BMI. The diabetic patient had a decrease in blood glucose level from 140.6 ± 2.13 to 121.9 ± 2.28. The result was proved significant with P < 0.05.
