The extracts significantly reduced fasting glucose levels in diabetic rats and also reduced the lipid profile parameters in diabetic rats.
In conclusion, our histopathological investigation along with the biochemical evaluations suggests the strong antidiabetic potential of Artemisia amygdalina. Further mechanistic studies are required to suggest the appropriate mechanism for the antidiabetic effect of the plant. They are also highly thankful to Mr. Showkat Ahmad Teli, Mr. Shafiq Ahmad Khan, Mr.

Abstract Artemisia species have been extensively used for the management of diabetes in folklore medicine. Introduction Diabetes mellitus is a metabolic disorder characterized by a loss of glucose homeostasis, with disturbances of carbohydrate, fat, and protein metabolism resulting from defects in insulin secretion, insulin action, or both [ 1 ]. Materials and Methodology 2. Plant Material and Extraction The plant material was collected from the local areas of Kashmir and was identified by the Centre of Taxonomy, University of Kashmir.
Experimental Animals Albino Wistar rats weighing — g of either sex were selected for the study. Experimental Design All the animals were randomly divided into several groups with five animals in each, serving as normal nondiabetic , diabetic control, diabetic treated with different extracts, and diabetic reference control, that is, glibenclamide. Induction of Diabetes Diabetes was induced in albino Wistar rats by a single intraperitoneal i. Assessment of Effects of Extracts on Biochemical Parameters Oral administration with plant extracts was started 72 h after streptozotocin injection in diabetic rats while normal group and diabetic control group were administered only with vehicle.
Effect of Extracts on Body Weight, Feed Consumption, and Water Consumption The effect of the extracts hydroethanolic and methanolic on parameters like body weight, feed consumption, and water consumption were determined and recorded during the study period. Histopathological Studies On the 14th day, all the animals were sacrificed and pancreas was removed. Oral Glucose Tolerance Test The oral glucose tolerance test was performed in overnight fasted normal rats [ 27 ].
Preliminary Phytochemical Tests The crude methanolic extract, hydroethanolic, ethyl acetate and petroleum ether fractions of Artemisia amygdalina were subjected to qualitative tests for identification of different constituents like alkaloids, flavonoids, terpenoids, phenolics, anthraquinones, glycosides, saponins and tannins by using standard qualitative methods described by Trease and Evans [ 28 ].
Results 3. Preliminary Phytochemical Analysis of Different Fractions of Artemisia amygdalina Preliminary screening of methanolic extracts revealed the presence of alkaloids, phenolics, and glycosides. Antihyperglycaemic Effect of Artemisia amygdalina The effect of extracts of Artemisia amygdalina and glibenclamide on serum glucose levels in normal, diabetic, and extract treated rats is presented in Table 1 a.

Effect of Extracts of Artemisia amygdalina and Glibenclamide on Body Weight in Rats The body weight of rats belonging to diabetic control group was drastically decreased upon the induction of diabetes.

Table 6 a Effect of extracts of Artemisia amygdalina and glibenclamide on glucose tolerance of rats. Discussion Many Indian medicinal plants are reported to be useful in diabetes mellitus and many species of genus Artemisia have been reported to have antidiabetic activity [ 29 ].
