Macaranga tanarius, antidiabetic, Antihiperlipedmia, Glucose-fructose


Objective: Macaranga tanarius showed a potent α–glucosidase inhibitors that may benefit diabetes treatment. The hexane-ethanol fraction of methanol extract of Macaranga tanarius was investigated for antidiabetic, and anti hiperlidemia activity in rats feed with high glucose-fructose diet.

Methods: After induced with high glucose-fructose diet for 42 d, the rats were treated with the hexane-ethanol fraction of methanol extract of Macaranga tanarius at doses of 34.2, 78.5, 137 mg/kg per oral once in a day for 5 d and high glucose-fructose diet consecutively. Fasting blood glucose, cholesterol, triglyceride, HDL and LDL concentration were evaluated at the next day after treatment.

Results: The 5 d administration of hexane-ethanol fraction of methanol extract of Macaranga tanarius did not produce any significant difference in any of the assigned parameters between the diet and all dose groups.

Conclusion: The hexane-ethanol fraction of methanol extract of Macaranga tanariusat all level has not antidiabetic and anti hiperlidemia activity in rats feet with high glucose-fructose diet.
