Body weights, blood sugar levels, key liver enzymes and lipid profile were examined, and the results demonstrated that, diet supplemented with 10% and 20% of Solanium melongena fruit possess a hypoglycemic ability, could aid weight reduction, restored liver function and acted as a good regulator of lipid profile levels.
