Abstract

Streptozotocin induced diabetic adult Wistar rats (n=8 per group) were fed ad libitum on a diet containing 1.25% cumin powder or a control diet for 8 weeks. Cumin feeding significantly reduced fasting plasma glucose concentrations and urinary glucose excretion in diabetic rats. This was also accompanied by a slight improvement in body weights of diabetic rats fed on the cumin diet. Dietary cumin also countered other metabolic alterations as revealed by decreased blood urea concentrations and reduced excretions of urea and creatinine by diabetic rats.
