Diabetes mellitus is a metabolic disorder and associated with many other metabolic functional alterations1. The bark of Ficus bengalensis and other plants are reported as antidiabeticand hypolipidemic due to presence of flavonoids and sterols2. Based on literature survey, tribal information and chemical constituents, the present study is undertaken to observe the hypolipidemic potential of leaves and fruits of Ficus bengalensis because they also contain the same active constituents. Hence, the leaves and fruits may have same activity like bark. To study the object, different doses of ethanolic extract of leaves and fruits of Ficus bengalensis was given to alloxan induced diabetic rats.
