To evaluate the impact of chronic administration of an angiotensin II receptor antagonist (Irbesartan) and/or curcumin on fasting blood glucose level (FBG), insulin sensitivity, and proinflammatory cytokines in experimentally-induced diabetes in albino rats. Materials and Methods: The study included 80 (20 as control group) male albino rats; diabetes mellitus (DM) was induced using intraperitoneal injection of a single dose of 50 mg/kg of streptozotocin (STZ) after animals were maintained on… Expand
