Effect of D-400, a herbomineral preparation on lipid profile, glycated haemoglobin and glucose tolerance in streptozotocin induced diabetes in rats.
R&D Centre, Himalaya Drug Co., Makali, Bangalore.
This study was undertaken to investigate D-400, a herbomineral formulation in streptozotocin induced diabetes in rats. Glycated haemoglobin, lipid profile and glucose tolerance test were studied. D-400 has an established hypoglycaemic effect in alloxan induced diabetes in rats as well as in non-insulin dependent diabetes mellitus patients. D-400 treated group showed lower glycated haemoglobin, triglycerides and higher HDL levels. The hyperglycaemic response was blunted after administration of oral glucose in the same group.
