  The aim of this study was to investigate the short term effect of aqueous-ethanolic extract of garlic in preventing and curing nephropathy following induced diabetes in rats using streptozotocin (STZ), with the help of stereological methods. Thirty two male wistar rats were randomly divided into control, control+extract, diabetic and diabetic+extract groups (n = 8). Diabetes was induced by intraperitoneal injection of 60 mg kg-1 of streptozotocin (STZ). Treatment with aqueous-ethanolic extract of garlic (50 mg kg-1 day-1) was followed for four weeks, then the left kidneys were excised and stereological studies were carried out. The results revealed that blood sugar of the diabetic rats was reduced significantly following treatment with garlic extract. The final body weight of both diabetic and diabetic+extract groups didn`t increase significantly, but in control and control+extract groups the body weight increased significantly (p<0.001). A significant increase in the kidney weight of the diabetic and diabetic+extract rats was found (p<0.001) compared to the control ones. The volume of cortex, medulla and total volume of kidney increased significantly in the diabetic and diabetic+extract groups compared to the control ones. The total glomerular volume increased significantly in diabetic rats compared to the other groups (p<0.05). In conclusion the aqueous-ethanolic extract of garlic influences the volume of total glomeruli but has no effect on the volume of other kidney components.

  Moslems believe that Islam is the most perfect religion and Qur'an the most perfect book that explains all human needs with the best style and there isn't any defect in Islam and Qur'an. The Holy Qur'an says; let man consider his food. Therefore we have decided to investigate the nutritional roles of those foods stated in Qur'an and their biochemical compounds. Almost all diet that is known as complete food today, mentioned in Qur'an and their advantages explained occasionally. A number of verses justified some differences that there were in divine religions about food consumption and a few explained advantages and disadvantages of certain nutrients and drinks such as wine. However according to our knowledge about nutritional roles of food in Qur'an it could be concluded their importance in health and prevention of disorders. Nevertheless, Islam has stressed on health and ordered to save it as a deposit, so the foods mentioned in Qur'an might have a lot of advantages, for example the best oil that has protective role in atherosclerosis is olive oil that is contain of a lot of ω9 fatty acids, researchers say today, olive is mentioned several times in Holy Qur'an. It is more possible that many unknown advantages in olive and other Qur'an's nutrients exist that will be revealed in future. Therefore Moslem scientists have an important duty to reveal a part of these unknowns.
