Effect of Allium Cepa Supplemented Diets on Plasma Glucose, Electrolytes and Renal Histology of Streptozotocin-Induced Diabetic Rats

  title={Effect of Allium Cepa Supplemented Diets on Plasma Glucose, Electrolytes and Renal Histology of Streptozotocin-Induced Diabetic Rats},
  author={Iosr Journals and Olubunmi Gloria Ayelagbe and Adeyemi S. Adele},
Allium cepa (onion) contains phytochemicals that are anti-diabetic. The anti-hyperglycemic benefits of onion and its possible effects in alleviating deleterious histological changes in kidney of streptozotocin (STZ)- induced diabetic mice was studied. 20 wistar rats were grouped into 4; A: was intraperitoneally administered a single dose of STZ in NaCl (60mg/kg body weight(BW)) + 2ml onion juice 100gBW/day), B: injected with a single dose of STZ; while groups C and D served as negative and…

Nephroprotective effect of ethanolic leaf extract of Thaumatococcus danielli (benth.) in streptozotocin induced diabetic Rats

This study suggests renal protective ability of the plant against impairment due to hyperglycemia in Streptozotocin induced diabetic rats and Oral administration of plant extract and glibenclamide significantly restored the electrolytes to near normal.

Effect of the methanol extract of the red cultivar Allium cepa L. on the serum biochemistry and electrolytes of rats following sub-chronic oral administration

Abstract Background In traditional medicine, Allium cepa Linnaeus is used for the treatment of several disease conditions. Whilst reports abound on the effects of several cultivars of A. cepa L on

Ameliorative Effect of Ethanolic Extract of Cucumis Sativus (Cucumber) Pulp on Alloxan Induced Kidney Toxicity in Male Adult Wistar Rats

Results showed that treatment with EECSP caused a dose dependent restoration of kidney architecture and renal functions when compared with untreated alloxan group that showed severe distortions in renal architecture and higher than normal serum urea and creatinine levels.

The review summarizes current scientific data concerning extracts and individual active principles of medicinal plants that have shown nephroprotective effects in in vivo experimental studies of diabetic nephropathy.



Alterations in the blood glucose, serum lipids and renal oxidative stress in diabetic rats by supplementation of onion (Allium cepa. Linn)

It is indicated that onion decreased blood glucose, serum lipid levels and reduced renal oxidative stress in STZ-induced diabetic rats and this effect might exert the anti-diabetic effect of onion.

A Histopathological Study on Gentamycin Induced Nephrotoxicity in Experimental Albino Rats

Drug-induced nephrotoxicity is an important cause of renal failure andgentamicin must be given in the lowest effective therapeutic doses in patients with normal kidney function.

Relative importance of transport and alkylation for pancreatic beta-cell toxicity of streptozotocin

The results are consistent with the central importance of selective uptake and alkylating activity in the mechanism of streptozotocin diabetogenicity.

Effect of bioflavonoids quercetin and curcumin on ischemic renal injury: a new class of renoprotective agents.

Quercetin and curcumin reduce ischemia-reperfusion injury and its inflammatory sequelae and hold promise as agents that can reduce immune and nonimmune renal injury, the key risk factors in chronic graft loss.

It is concluded that Allium cepa contains some bioactive substances (mostly antioxidants) which could prevent renal organ damage from hyperglycemia in diabetes mellitus.

Onion and garlic use and human cancer.

This uniquely large data set from southern European populations shows an inverse association between the frequency of use of allium vegetables and the risk of several common cancers.

Differences in the action of nitrosomethylurea and streptozotocin.

It was concluded that the two drugs have different modes of action and there is a fundamental difference in the basis of the resistance of bacterial mutants insensitive to streptozotocin and nitrosomethylurea respectively.
