Figure 9: Hematoxylin and eosin stained liver section. A; normal control group showing preserved liver architecture without any pathological changes (x200). Liver sections from diabetic control group showing: severe hydropic degeneration and lobular inflammation (B, x400), vascular congestion (C, x400), portal inflammation (D, x400) & sinusoidal dilatation and congestion (E, x400). Liver sections from stevia treated group showing: improvement of all the hepatic injuries with only mild hydropic degeneration, sinusoidal dilatation and focal mild lobular inflammation (F, x400) and Mild vascular congestion (G, x400). Liver sections from the glimepride treated group showing attenuation of the hepatic injuries with mild hydropic degeneration, mild vascular congestion (H, x400). Liver sections from the glimepride and stevia treated group showing marked improvement of all the hepatic injuries with only mild focal hydropic degeneration (I, x400).
