A practical application of this work is how on stress can affect fertility.
Diabetes was induced in Group C, D and E animals by intraperitoneal administration of alloxan monohydrate (150 mg/kg). The spermatogenic and steroidogenic functions of the testes is finely regulated by the brain (on stimulation), the master endocrine gland, and local factors produced by the testes.
During intrauterine life the proliferation of primitive germ cells and the formation of the testes is carefully directed by testosterone, secreted by leydig cell on activation by human chorionic gonadotropin (HCG) released by the placenta.
Introduction The kidneys play a major role in the control of the consistency of the internal environment.
The blood passing through the kidneys is first filtrated (glomerular filtration) so that all the constituents, except blood cells and plasma proteins, go into the microtubular systems. A human teratogen is an agent that alters the growth or structure of the developing embryo or fetus, thereby causing birth defects.
According to research, Virgin Coconut Oil (VCO) has been reported tohave hypoglycaemic and anti-diabetic properties.
Therefore, this study was designed to investigate theameliorative effects of VCO supplemented diet on blood glucose, renal tissues and antioxidant enzymes indiabetic rats.
The study was carried out on fifteen male rats weighing 150 ...
Introduction: Virgin coconut oil (VCO), a saturated fat,has been reported to have anti-diabetic properties and thereis dearth of information on its potency to correct abnormalhaemostatic parameters associated with diabetic patients.
Group II and Group III were made diabetic by intrap...
Untreated hyperglycaemia leads to kidney damage through oxidative stress of the kidney tissues with resultantcompromise of the antioxidant enzymes.
