Abstract

The present work was done to investigate the ability of Yemeni Sider honey to ameliorate the level of blood sugar and lipid profile in rabbits. For this goal 36 rabbits were used, after adaptation period the animals were divided into 6 groups as follows: group 1 and 2 served as control, and other 4 groups were served as treatment groups. Metformin was used as comparison in alloxan –induced diabetic rabbits. After the end of experiment (day 27) our results showed stabilization of sugar level and lipid profile,cholesterol HDL, LDL and triglycerides. We concluded that the use of honey in addition to metformin is more effective and ability of this drug in dealing with the metabolism of carbohydrates and fats.
