Abstract: Areca catechu fruit (Areca nut) is one component to betel chewing. There is an assumption that the antidiabetic effect of chewing betel is sourced from areca nut. This study aims to determine the anti-hyperglycemic effect and glucose tolerance of ethanol extract of areca nut (Areca catechu) seed in diabetic rats. Old Areca nut fruit was obtained from a garden in the Depok region, the suburb of Jakarta. Areca nut seeds were made into fine powder then macerated by using 70% ethanol at room temperature based on the Harbone method. Male rats were eligible for the trial, after acclimatization, rats were made diabetic by using alloxan. The rats for this trial were divided into 6 groups, each of groups consisted of 5 rats. Glibenclamide was used as a positive control for anti-diabetes and acarbose was used for glucose tolerance test, as normal control was given distilled water, while for negative control was used 1% CMC Na, namely a solution suspending agent for test preparation. Areca nut seed extract was given with 3 types of doses, namely low, medium and high doses, namely 22.5 mg; 45 mg and 180 mg per 200 gr b.w rats, respectively. For measure blood sugar levels was used a glucometer tool. The result of this study showed, that on 14 days of given test preparation, the statistical results with ANOVA test and Kruskal-wallis test showed that medium doses of areca nut seed extract had the same antidiabetic effect and glucose tolerance with positive control and were significantly different to negative controls. (P≤0.05). While on low and high dose was not significantly different to negative controls (P≥0.05). conclusion of this study, areca nut seed was very potential for anti-diabetes and glucose tolerance. Keywords: antidiabetes, Areca nut seed, Areca catechu, male rats, tolerance glucose.
