Figure 3: Semiquantitative morphometric analysis of glomerular damage index. Figure summarizes the glomerular damage index (GDI) of animals in all the four groups. GDI was calculated on PAS stained sections at a magnification of ×400 with a scoring system of 0 to 4. 0 represents no lesion; 1+ represents sclerosis of <25% of the glomerulus; 2+ represents sclerosis of 2550% of the glomerulus; 3+ represents 5075% of the glomerulus and 4+ represents sclerosis of >75% of the glomerulus. Values represent the mean ± standard deviation (n = 4) of the samples. Signifi cant difference between Con and Dia groups: #p < 0.05; ##p < 0.01; ###p < 0.001. Significant difference between Dia and Dia+AMG, Dia and Dia+AGE groups: * p < 0.05; ** p < 0.01; *** p < 0.001
