Abstract:

The use of traditional plant for diabetes mellitus is widely practiced in Middle East countries. The aim of this investigation is to evaluate the biological effect of fruits, vegetables and legumes on lowering the level of glucose in blood and enhancement of the immune system. Thirty-two male albino rats (130 – 200 g ) each were used in the study, 28 of rats diabetes by single intraperitoneal injection of alloxan at   dose level of 150 mg / kg body weight. All rats (normal and diabetic) were kept on casein basal diet for 4 weeks. They were then divided into 5 groups. At the end of experiment the weight gain was calculated. Organs (liver – heart – kidney – spleen – lungs) of each rat were removed rapidly and were weighted separately. Blood samples were used for estimation of fasting serum glucose, serum GPT and GOT, serum lipid profile, kidney function, cellular and humoral immunity. Data showed that serum GOT and GPT levels declined significantly (p<0.01) in all treated groups that fed on 20% powder and extract when compared with diabetic control positive, while feeding rat on basal diet containing 20% vegetables extract, legumes powder and fruits extract revealed more hypoglycemic effect. The best results for immunity were 20% fruits extract and vegetables group.


Keywords: Immunity, liver enzymes, internal organs, rats, diabetes mellitus, lipid profile.
