Inhibitory effect of CZ on blood glucose after glucose loading in diabetic rats. The diabetic rats fasted for 16 h received glucose (2 g/kg body wt; p.o.) and a dose of CZ (300 mg/kg body wt; p.o.) by gastric intubations. Control animals were given only glucose (2 g/kg body wt; p.o.). Blood glucose was monitored at 0, 30, 60 and 120 min after food administration. There are no significant changes observed in the 30 minutes post-load glucose level between the control group and CZ treated group. Data are expressed as the mean ± S.E, n = 6. ns- not significant.
