  Many studies have suggested that oils high in saturated fatty acids are responsible for the cholesterol-raising effect of saturated fat. The aim of this study was to compare the effect of palm oil (rich in saturated fatty acid) and egusi melon oil (rich in unsaturated fatty acids) on serum and liver lipids and their antioxidant status. Lipid profiles, Malondialdehyde (MDA) levels and activities of Glutathione Peroxidase (GSH-Px) and Glutathione Reductase (GSSG-Rx) were determined in serum and liver of rats fed a high cholesterol diet for 6 weeks. Palm oil and egusi melon fed rats exhibited improved serum and liver lipid profiles and had a more significant reduction in serum and liver MDA levels as compared to control rats. Similarly, GSH-Px and GSSG-Rx activities were significantly higher in rats fed palm oil and egusi melon oil compared to control. It could thus be concluded base on these findings that palm oil and egusi melon improve serum and liver lipid profile in rats fed a high fat diet their consumption could thus offer protection against lipid-related disorders.

  Diabetes mellitus is characterized by some specific complications including diabetic nephropathy. Plasma creatinine and urea are useful clinical tools in assessing renal function, despite some limitations. In the present study, plasma glucose, creatinine and urea concentrations were determined in type 2 diabetic patients attending Irrua Specialist Hospital, Ekpoma, Edo state, Nigeria. About 80 (35 males and 45 females) diabetic patients aged between 30-70 years serving as tests and 50 (30 males and 20 females) age apparently healthy individuals of similar age bracket serving as controls were used for the study.
