In this study the hypoglycaemic, hypocholesterolaemic and hypotriglyceridaemic effects of garlic were studied in streptozotocin (STZ)-induced diabetic rats. Compared to normal (non-diabetic) rats, STZ-induced diabetic rats had approximately 200% higher serum glucose, 50% higher serum cholesterol and 30% higher serum triglyceride levels as well as 86% higher urinary protein levels.
