Objective: To evaluate the hypoglycemic activity of Tramadol in streptozocin induced diabetic rats. Methods: In this study, 18 albino rats (Three groups each containing six rats)were included for the study. After 4 days of streptozocin injection those rats that develop fasting blood sugar >200mg/dl will be selected for the study. The study groups will be divided as follows, Group-1 (CONTROL): Distilled water 0.5ml (oral), Group-2 (STANDARD): Streptozocin (60mg/kg) i.v. and Group-3 (TEST): Streptozocin(60mg/kg) i.v.+ Tramadol(0.45mg/kg). Fasting blood glucose levels from experimental animals will be measured on 1, 3, 7, 14 and 28th day by capillary blood glucose method by using glucometer(ACUCHEK). Results: In this study after inducing diabetes with streptozotocin(60mg/kg) diabetes was induced and test drug has showed significant hypoglycemic activity comparing to standard drug Glimepiride.
