In th is study, we examined the effect of different proportion of Bitter melon juice on triglyceride serum level in high fat diet of rats. Method: An experimental study using control group with pre and post test design was carried out on high fat diet of rats. 28 male Wistar rats were divided into four groups.

The dosage was given for 15 days of experiment. The experiment took 22 days including the seven days of adaptation phase. Triglycerides serum level was determined using enzymatic method (GPO-PAP). Data were analyzed using paired t-test and One Way ANOVA.
