Introduction: Diabetes mellitus, or hyperglycemia, is one of the risk factors for atherosclerosis, causing disruption of blood flow through arterial plaque formation and atherosclerosis. Diabetic kidney disease (DKD) is the most common cause of chronic and end-stage renal disease (CKD and ESRD) worldwide and is a stronger predictor of mortality in people with diabetes. Although the concept that the kidney plays a key role in glucose balance is not new, it is only recently that this organ has been viewed as a potential therapeutic target. This study aimed to assess the potential effect of Syzygium polyanthum extract in DKD mice model.

Methods: We administrated Syzygium polyanthum extract for 2-weeks to alloxan-induced diabetic mice.

Results: Treatment with Syzygium polyanthum extract reduced blood glucose levels in dose dependency (2,62mg/20g/day, 5,24mg/20g/day, and 7,86mg/20g/day). Histological analysis showed that Syzygium polyanthum extract significantly (p<0,05) improved the kidney lesions in low dose, but did not show a significant effect on inflammatory cell at glomerulus.

Conclusion: Syzygium polyanthum extract has potential to improve the kidney lesion in low dose and showed therapeutic potential in DKD treatment.
