Background & Objective: Diabetes mellitus has different side effects on various tissues of the body. This study was conducted to determine the effect of hydroalcoholic extract of Dracocephalum kotschyi on blood glucose and lipid profile of streptozotocin-induced diabetic rats.

Materials & Methods: In this experimental study, 48 male Wistar rats (200-250 g) randomly divided into 6 equal groups. Normal control and control diabetic received distilled water, whereas the control group received the hydroalcoholic extract of Dracocephalum kotschyi (120 mg/Kg bw). Three treatment diabetic groups received 40, 80 and 120 mg/Kg bw of hydroalcoholic extract of Dracocephalum kotschyi, respectively. All rats were treated orally by gavage which continued daily for 21 days. The level of blood glucose and lipid profile was measured at the end of the study in different groups.

Results: The Mean blood glucose in the extract treatment groups decreased significantly compared to the diabetic control. The mean of total cholesterol in the treatment groups with 80 and 120 mg/Kg bw of the extract were 105.8±9.73 and 102.73±8.75 mg/dl respectively, that reduced significantly compared to the diabetic control (135.2±12.15 mg/dl). The mean of triglyceride in the treatment groups with 80 and 120 mg/Kg bw of the extract were 177.81±13.47 and 164.86±12.53 mg/dl that reduced significantly compared to the diabetic control (206.75±17.42 mg/dl).

Conclusion: The extract of Dracocephalum kotschyi probably has reduced the blood glucose and lipid profile in diabetic mellitus.
