    Author(s): Said SS*, Kiru AI, Alhassan AJ, Umar AM and Zaharadeen A

    Diabetes mellitus is a syndrome characterized by chronic hyperglycemia and disturbances of carbohydrate, fat and protein metabolism associated with an absolute or relative deficiency in insulin secretion or insulin action. To investigate the effect of white grub extract on alloxan-induced diabetic rats. Diabetes was induced in rats after 18 hours of fasting intraperitoneally by alloxan (80 mg/kg). A total of 40 rats used, were divided into eight groups (G1- GVIII) of five rats each. GII-GVIII were induced with diabetes. GI served as normal control, GII were administered only distilled water and GIII were administered the standard anti-diabetic drug (Glibenclamide ‘5 mg’). While GIV (E2, 100 mg/kg), GV (E3, 200 mg/kg), GVI (E4, 300 mg/kg), GVII (F1, 400 mg/kg) and GVIII (F2, 500 mg/kg) were respectively administered with fraction of white grub extracts. After fifteen (15) d.. Read More»
