Abstract

<p align="justify">The beneficial effect of feeding fenugreek (Trigonella foenum graecum) seed mucilage and spent turmeric (Curcuma longa) on diabetic status was studied in streptozotocin-induced diabetic rats. Diabetic rats lost weight but body weights were improved by feeding spent turmeric than fenugreek seed mucilage. In diabetic rats, a 30% improvement in urine sugar and urine volume profiles was observed with feeding fenugreek seed mucilage and spent turmeric. Fasting blood glucose showed a 26% and 18% improvement with fenugreek seed mucilage and spent turmeric feeding to diabetic rats,respectively. Fenugreek seed mucilage compared with tumeric was more effective in ameliorating diabetic state.</p>
