To evaluate the inhibitory effect of chlorogenic acid on the forming of type 2 diabetes mellitus (T2DM), using Sprague Dawley (SD) rats, a recognized T2DM model induced by high-fat high-sucrose diet (HFSD) and streptozotocin (STZ). Thirty female SD rats were assigned equally to three groups randomly: normal control with standard commercial (NC), chlorogenic acid treatment with HFSD and chlorogenic acid (90mg/kg, CA), and diabetes model with HFSD (DM). Upon treatment with chlorogenic acid, suppression of the onset of diabetes, reduced serum glucose and insulin concentrations, improved glucose tolerance and increased body weight and visceral fat weight were observed. Serum triglyceride, total cholesterol, low density lipoprotein levels, and kidney and pancreas morphology were significantly ameliorated. Chlorogenic acid also inhibited the mRNA levels of hepatic G-6-Pase and up-regulated the mRNA levels of skeletal muscle GLUT4. Our results indicated that before the onset of diabetes, chlorogenic acid had an inhibitory effect against the forming of T2DM induced by HFSD and STZ through regulating the glucose and lipid metabolism.
