The rats are divided into 6 groups and each group con tains 6 rats (N= 6) as follows. Group I: Normal control Given normal saline (10ml/kg/day). Group II: Diabetic control Given normal saline (10ml/kg/day). Group III: Euglycemic rats Given turmeric extract (300mg/kg/day ). Group IV: Diabetic rats Given turmeric extract (300mg/kg/ day).
