Abstract


Diabetes mellitus is a global health problem affecting with more people in developing than developed countries. Insulin and oral hypoglycemic drugs have remained the corner stone for the management of diabetes mellitus. Unfortunately, apart from having a number of side effects, none of the oral synthetic hypoglycemic agents has been successful in maintaining euglycaemia. The use of medicinal plants for the treatment of diabetes mellitus has gained recognition and recommendation by the World Health Organization especially in developing countries where access to the conventional treatment is expensive and not readily accessible.

Various plants and plant extracts have been found to play an important role in the treatment of diabetes and these plants were believed to have hypoglycemic properties. Cabbage is one of such medicinal plants, whose therapeutic application has a folkloric background. The plant enjoys widespread reputation as a remedy for various ailments. Most of the research work done on cabbage has been on extract. Hence, a scientific verification of its use as a supplement in food would be important in establishing a pharmacological basis for some of the claimed ethnomedicinal uses of the plant. This scientific verification forms the basis of the present investigation using animal models.

The aim of the study is to determine the modulatory role of cabbage supplement on blood glucose levels and some physiological parameters in alloxan induced diabetic Wistar rats. While the objectives were to determine the effects of cabbage on serum glucose levels, to determine the effects of cabbage on lipid profile and also to determine the effects of cabbage on serum liver enzymes activities on alloxan induced diabetic Wistar rats respectively.

The study was designed to investigate the effect of cabbage supplement on blood glucose, lipid profile and serum liver enzymes on alloxan induced diabetic Wistar rats. A total of twenty five Wistar rats of both sexes weighing 100 โ€“ 150 g were used. They were randomly allocated into five groups of five rats (n = 5 rats/group). Group one were diabetic rats given distilled water and served as the negative control. Group two were diabetic rats that received 5 mg/kg b/w of glibenclamide orally and served as positive control. While, groups three, four and five were diabetic rats that received 10, 25 and 50% cabbage supplement, respectively.

All groups were treated for thirty days. Blood glucose and some physiological parameters including lipid profile, aspartate aminotransferase (AST), alanine aminotransferase (ALT), and alkaline phosphatase (ALP), were measured in all rats. Blood glucose level was significantly (p< 0.05) reduced in treated diabetic rats in comparison to the diabetic control rats.

In addition, serum total cholesterol, triglyceride, and low-density lipoprotein (LDL) were significantly decreased (p<0 .05=”” a=”” alp=”” alt=”” and=”” antilipidaemic=”” as=”” ast=”” be=”” beneficial=”” but=”” cabbage=”” caused=”” considered.=”” control=”” decrease=”” diabetes=”” diabetic=”” effect=”” enzymes.=”” feed=”” furthermore=”” given=”” groups.=”” has=”” high-density=”” hypoglycaemic=”” in=”” increase=”” increased=”” its=”” levels=”” lipoprotein=”” management=”” may=”” mellitus=”” of=”” p=”” properties=”” results=”” serum=”” significant=”” span=”” study=”” suggest=”” supplement=”” supplementation=”” than=”” that=”” the=”” this=”” thus=”” treated=”” was=”” when=”” while=”” with=””>


Chapter One


1.0 Introduction

Diabetes is a disease which affects the metabolism of carbohydrates, proteins, and fat due to absolute or relative deficiency of insulin secretion with or without varying degree of insulin resistance (Asadujjaman et al., 2011). The number of individuals with diabetes has been increasing due to population growth, aging, urbanization, and increasing prevalence of obesity and physical inactivity (Sarah et al., 2004). The World Health Organization (WHO) estimated the diabetic population to increase up to 300 million or more by the year 2025 (Patel et al.,
2012).

The most important distinctive feature of diabetes is an elevated blood glucose concentration, but this abnormality is just one of a number of biochemical and physiological changes that occur (Olaitan, 2012). Hypercholesterolemia and hyper triglyceridemia are common complications of diabetes mellitus (Akhtar et al., 2007). The treatment of diabetes mainly involves the use of hypoglycaemic drugs in addition to insulin but the unwanted side effects of these drugs prompted a demand for new compounds for the treatment of diabetes (Asadujjaman et al., 2011).

The drive for change from orthodox to herbal medicines is to an extent due to theadverse reactions, undesirable side effects of synthetic drugs, the cost of buying modern antidiabetic drugs, which is beyond the reach of the lower class citizens and the belief that natural products are safer to the biological systems (Mohammed et al., 2007). It has now become necessary to search for new compounds in order to overcome these problems, and several traditional medicines are now used to manage diabetes mellitus in different societies all over the continents (Raju et al., 2011).

How to defend your research work


This is a general guide on how to defend your research work:

1. Prepare For Questions:

If you are preparing for questions that may be asked during your defense, then your answers will flow smoothly and effectively. This will prove your knowledge on the subject e.g “Modulatory Role Of Cabbage (Brassica Olaeracae) Supplement On Blood Glucose And Some Physiological Parameters In Alloxan โ€“ Induced Diabetic Wistar Rats“, and strengthening your argument. Ask friends and family, read your work for them to listen to your presentation, and write down questions. You may be lucky the panel will ask you those you have already prepared on.

2. Strong Summary:

Summarizing your chapters will help keep your audience focused because it is easy for a mind to drift, so providing summaries will ensure your panel will follow along, even if they lose focus for a brief moment. Visual aides, such as graphs and power-point presentations can be very helpful. If you are going to use these, make sure you will practice your presentation with them.

3. Be Confident in Your Research Work:

Not knowing your topic “Modulatory Role Of Cabbage (Brassica Olaeracae) Supplement On Blood Glucose And Some Physiological Parameters In Alloxan โ€“ Induced Diabetic Wistar Rats” inside out will cause you to struggle and ultimately fail with your defense. You need to know the subject from every angle to ensure you are fully prepared for any question that may come your way.

4. Conclusion:

Reinforce your findings to conclude your defense. The finale of your presentation should focus on proving the work that has been done. You may need to recap on what has changed and remained unchanged, if is necessary.

5 . Listen:

Before you get defensive or recite a particular answer, make sure you truly understand the question being asked. Being a good listener is an important quality, because providing an inaccurate or off-topic answer will also weaken the validity of your paper.
