Abstract

OBJECTIVE:

To investigate the effects of purple sweet potato flavonoids (PSPF) on blood glucose and lipids levels in diabetic rats.

METHODS:

Diabetes was induced by intraperitoneal injection of streptozotocin (STZ, 65 mg.kg(-1)) in rats. The changes of fasting blood glucose and lipids levels in serum and body weight, food and fluid intake of diabetic rats treated with PSPF were examined.

RESULTS:

Diabetic symptoms were ameliorated after rats were fed with PSPF. The fasting blood glucose (FBG), GSP, TC, TG, LDL-C were decreased and serum HDL-C levels were increased (P<0.01) in high, medium dose PSPF groups; while FBG, serum GSP, TG, LDL-C were also improved in low dose group (P<0.05 or P<0.01).

CONCLUSION:

Purple sweet potato flavonoids can decrease the blood glucose and lipids levels in diabetic rats.
