The clinical and biochemical variables of a patient with unusual and relatively long? type 1 diabetes (T1DM) remission are reported. The case is followed by literature review of interventions with a positive impact on T1DM remission. The patient has clinical and biochemical phenotype consistent with T1DM. He refused to take treatment for diabetes. He has been using Trigonella foenum-graecum as the only treatment for diabetes. The patient has not developed diabetic ketoacidosis until the time of this report (34 months after his initial diagnosis), which is unusual for patients with T1DM. The positive effect of Trigonella foenum-graecum on T1DM remission in this patient is not ascertained but possible. Relevant literature of studies and case reports of similar prolonged T1DM remission reviewed and summarized. There is a clear need to continue exploring interventions in prospective studies to induce and prolong T1DM remission.
