  1. Ctrl: Control group, Fen: Fenugreek group. 1FBG: Fasting blood glucose. 2FPI: Fasting plasma insulin. 3Relative values of (fasting blood glucose × fasting blood insulin) to the mean value of Ctrl group. 4FRB contains 82% of protodioscin converted to dioscin. Values are expressed as Mean ± SEM for 8 rats. Mean without a common superscript letter is significantly different, P < 0.05 (ANOVA). Asterisks indicate a difference from Ctrl: P < 0.05 (T-test).
