Abstract
lupinus termis was chosen for this study, because it can be used as an edible crop . The aims of this study were to investigate the effect of the seeds of this plant on blood glucose, cholesterol and triglyceride levels in Non Insulin Dependent Diabetes Mellitus Sudanese patients (NIDDM). This study was conducted in 40 randomly selected NIDDM (certified) Sudanese patients 20 males and 20 females (30-60years old) control groups of 20 healthy individuals males and females was used in this study . Blood samples were collected from all respondents before and after treatments, all of the respondents were given75g of termis daily for seven days and the diabetic patients were advised to use their normal prescribed hypoglycemic drugs . Results of the study indicated that blood glucose levels of diabetic patients (40) were significantly higher (p<0.001) relative to that of control group. Likewise the diabetic patients showed significantly higher blood cholesterol (p<0.05) and T.G (p<0.05) compared to that of the control group respectively. Treatment of all respondent with lupinus termis decreased significantly all of the measurement parameters . In conclusion, diabetic patients with hyperglycemia and hyperlipidemia can use soaked lupinus termis seeds, which exhibited a hypoglycemic effect on NIDDM and healthy individuals.
