AIM: The evaluation of the positive and protective effects thymol as a natural compound on the STZ -induced diabetic rats.

MATERIALS AND METHODS: In this study, seven groups of the streptozotocin induced diabetic and normal rats (overall 42 males) were tested through various biochemical and histopathological factors such as: serum glucose, insulin, creatinine, lipids, lipoproteins, liver function-related enzymes, and antioxidant status in liver and kidney.

RESULTS: The obtained results in this work indicated that thymol had a significant anti-hypoglycemic, anti-hypolipidemic activities on the STZ-induced diabetic rats. Further, the assessment different biochemical parameters revealed that the levels of creatinine, low-density lipoprotein cholesterol, very low density lipoprotein cholesterol, and liver function-related enzymes such as aspartate aminotransferase and alanine aminotransferase were decreased in the treated diabetes rats under 20 and 40 mg/kg thymol compared to the control diabetes group. Considerably, the anti-oxidant enzymes status that were achieved from the liver and kidney organs were modulated after treatment with thymol in the diabetic rats.

CONCLUSION: The results of this research has brough a new aspect concerning the proteevtive and positive effects of thymol on the diabetic complications in the animal model.
