In this work, radish microgreen and clover etiolated sprouts were added of semi-modified diet (10%) for 6 weeks in streptozotocin-induced diabetic rats (60 mg/kg) to investigate their effect on blood sugar, liver and kidneys function and organ histopathology. The results revealed a significant elevation in blood sugar, urea, AST, ALT activities, creatinine and uric acid in rat than the control group animal. Also, the increased and decreased values by STZ-diabetic animal were improved by 10% semi-modified diet. Histopathological analysis of various organ tissues resulted in a significant alteration which is attributable to the STZ injection, while radish microgreen and clover etiolated sprouts semi-modified diet showed amelioration in STZ influences on organ. From the data, it may be concluded that Radish microgreen and clover etiolated sprouts has the potential to alleviate hyperglycemia and possess antioxidant effects in cases of diabetic state or for prevention of this disease.
