Indian J traditional knowledge. Several mechanisms have been postulated for the progression of diabetic nephropathy including advanced glycation end products accumulation that stimulate mesangial cells to produce extracellular matrix ECMoxidative stress, acceleration of the polyol pathway, and hemodynamic changes. Histopathological findings of the kidneys Ensetee 2 revealed that STZ induced diabetic rats have degenerated renal corpuscles, glomerular hypertrophy, mesangial expansion, and hypercellularity.

This monocarpic, herbaceous ensetr is a wonderful specimen in any garden. The degree of renal hypertrophy was expressed as the ratio of the weight of the two kidneys to the total body weight.

The protective effects are, possibly, due to the decline in the free radical generation.

Oxidative stress influences the pathogenesis of DN not only through overproduction of ROS but also through the enxete of antioxidant enzyme activities, the formation of lipid peroxides, and non-enzymatic protein glycosylation.

Since hyperglycemia-mediated oxidative stress seems to be the main cause of diabetic complications 2930an ideal antidiabetic drug should combine both hypoglycemic and antioxidant properties. Attenuation of renal dysfunction by anti-hyperglycemic compound isolated from fruit pulp of Eugenia jambolana in streptozotocin-induced diabetic rats. Ratio of kidney weights to body weight of various groups of rats was calculated to assess the renal hypertrophy.
