Stevia rebaudiana is one of the main constituent of various herbal formulations available for diabetes. The present study was aimed at assessing the antihyperlipidemic (Total cholesterol and triglycerides) effect of the aqueous extract of Stevia rebaudiana in alloxan induced diabetic rats. The powdered leaf was successfully extracted with water using maceration process. The wistar strains of male albino rats were used for the present study. The aqueous extract of Stevia Rebaudiana was administered intraperitoneally injection as a dose of 60mg/kg body weight to alloxan induced diabetic rats and it was found to reduce blood lipid level significantly (p<0.05). The plant extraction also exhibit correction of altered biochemical parameters like SGOT and SGPT levels in diabetic rats. The study concluded that Stevia Rebaudiana possess hypolipidemic effect in experimental diabetic rats.
