Diabetes (DM) is a leading health concern with high morbidity and mortality. Untreated DM may lead to several complications such as macro- and micro-angiopathy, and cause heart failure (HF). The present paper attempts to review the treatment strategies of diabetic cardiomyopathy (DCM) with medicinal plants and marine-derived products. The data collected from published research articles and databases. Most diabetic patients die as a consequence of HF caused due to DM-induced coronary artery disease and cardiomyopathy. Several factors are involved in the progression of cardiac dysfunction in DM-associated coronary artery disease. No single, precise prevention or therapeutic agents identified to treat DCM; therefore, a combination of strategies required for the effective management of patients with DCM. Hence, researchers are aiming on marine and nutraceutical based natural products to revolutionize DCM management. In this context, present review focuses on the treatment approaches to DCM using natural products such as medicinal plants and marine-derived products.
