Aside from being a social stigma, obesity is frequently associated with insulin resistance, in turn linked to development of type II diabetes, hypertension, hyperlipidemia, and atherosclerosis – the so-called metabolic syndrome.This study investigated the biochemical changes in serum urea and creatinine levels in obese male rats treated with aque...

... group showed a highly significant increase in the mean serum levels of urea and creatinine as compared to those of control group (p< 0.001, Table 2, Fig. 2). Treatment of rats with 200 mg/kg/day ginger extract orally for 8 weeks produced a highly significant decrease in the mean serum level of creatinine as compared to those of obese group (p< 0.001, Table 2, Fig. 2), while, the mean serum level of urea was showed no significant difference as compared to that of obese group. ...
