This research was aimed to investigate that alpha-mangostin compound derived from mangosteen pericarp able to reduce blood urea nitrogen (BUN), plasma creatinine, also for amelioration of renal proximal tubular of kidney in diabetic mice. In vivo of antioxidant test was conducted by using strain male BALB/c mice. Mice were divided into two groups; normal control (KN) and streptozotocin-induced diabetic mice. Streptozotocin (STZ) induction was performed using multiple low-dose of 30 mg/kg bw injected for five consecutive days. Diabetic mice were separated again into three subgroups; diabetic control (KD), diabetic mice treated with Metformin HCl (KM), and diabetic mice treated with alpha-mangostin. Alpha-mangostin treatment group was differentiated based on dose given; P1 (2 mg/kg bw), P2 (4 mg/Kg bw), and P3 (8 mg/Kg bw). Before and after STZ injection, body weight and fasting blood glucose were measured. Body weight and fasting blood glucose were measured at 1st, 7th and 14th day of alpha-mangostin treatment. Treatment was given for 14 days. At 15th day, BUN and plasma creatinine were measured using Pentra C 200 Reader. Result showed that alpha-mangostin administration was able to reduce BUN, plasma creatinine, and ameliorates renal proximal tubular of kidney in diabetic mice significantly.
