    Diabetes is a chronic disease in which food is not properly absorbed in the body to be used as energy. This results in high levels of sugar in the blood. During the normal process of digestion, food is consumed and broken down into small sugar particles called glucose. The glucose enters the blood stream and is moved into the body’s cells, where it can be used as energy. Insulin is a hormone that is produced by the pancreas. People with diabetes have too little insulin production, their body is unable to use insulin properly (insulin resistance), or both. This does not allow glucose to be moved into the body’s cells, which results high levels of glucose in the bloodstream. There are four major conditions associated with high blood glucose levels: pre-diabetes, type 1 diabetes, type 2 diabetes, and gestational diabetes. Diabetes is the seventh leading cause of death and has no cure. The three cornerstones of diabetes management are: diet, physical activity, and medication, if necessary (i.e., insulin or oral glucose-lowering agents).The three cornerstones of diabetes management include nutrition, physical activity, and medication.

    The micro particles delivery system are considered and accepted as a reliable means to deliver the drug to target site with specificity and to maintain the desired concentration at the site of interest without untoward effects. In this regard, an attempt has been made to design the microspheres containing Acyclovir. Microparticles were prepared by Ionto trophic gelation method using different drug to polymer ratio. After this initial burst, all studied microspheres released at a lower rate and percentage drug release of all formulations as indicated quite well. Addition of Calcium chloride to the Sodium alginate polymer, swelling property of Sodium alginate was decreased hence % drug release was decreased. The formulation F7 which showed higher entrapment efficiency 98.6 provides desired drug release rate.
