ABSTRACT:
Antihyperglycemic activity of leave extracts of Ficus carica was evaluated on STZ induced diabetic rats. Diabetes was induced in albino Wistar rats of either sex by intraperitoneal (60mg/kg b.w.) of STZ, freshly dissolved in citrate buffer (0.01 M, pH 4.5). Ficus carica leave extract in different solution (viz. petroleum ether, ethyloacetate, methanol and aqueous) were administered to diabetic rats for 9 days. The effect of extracts on blood glucose and body weight was studies on day 1st and 9th. The study showed that the ethyl acetate, methanolic and aqueous extract of Ficus sarmentosa leaves reduced blood glucose level and body weight significantly. This may justify the use of ficus species as ethanomedical medicine for treatment of diabetes mellitus.
