Abstract

Abstrak.Tujuan penelitian ini adalah mengetahui pengaruh pemberian teh kombucha terhadapkadar glukosa darah Rattus norvegicus. Jenis penelitian ini adalah eksperimen sungguhan (trueexperiment) yang melibatkan empat kelompok hewan coba, dengan dosis asupan teh kombuchaberturut-turut 0 ml/ekor, 5,5 ml/ekor, 8 ml/ekor, dan 11 ml/ekor. Pengukuran kadar glukosa darahdengan metode reduksi glukosa darah menggunakan alat Glucometer ?On-Call Plus? BloodGlucose Monitoring System. Hasil penelitian ini menunjukkan bahwa teh kombucha yang diberikanpada hewan coba Rattus norvegicus dengan dosis asupan 5,5 ml/ekor, 8 ml/ekor, dan 11 ml/ekormemiliki potensi menurunkan kadar glukosa darah. Berdasarkan hasil uji anava dua arah yangdilanjutkan dengan uji Post Hoc Test menunjukkan bahwa tidak ada pengaruh yang signifikan padainteraksi antara faktor dosis teh kombucha dengan faktor waktu pengambilan sampel darahterhadap penurunan kadar glukosa darah Rattus norvegicus. Untuk faktor dosis teh kombucha, dosis5,5ml/ekor maupun 8ml/ekor memiliki perbedaan signifikan jika dibandingkan dengan kelompokkontrol. Artinya: (1) minum teh kombucha menyebabkan dampak menurunkan kadar glukosa darahRattusnorvegicus,(2)mengkonsumsi teh kombucha baik 5,5 ml maupun 8 ml menyebabkanpenurunan kadar glukosa darah, serta (3) konsumsi 5,5 ml maupun 8 ml memberikan pengaruhpenurunan kadar glukosa darah yang tidak berbeda.Kata Kunci: Teh kombucha, glukosa darah, Rattus norvegicusAbstract.The purpose of this study was to determine the effects of kombucha tea on blood glucoselevels of Rattus norvegicus. This type of research is true exsperiment involving four groups ofexperimental animals, a dose of kombucha tea intake respectively 0 ml/rat, 5,5 ml/rat, 8 ml/ rat, and11 ml/rat. Measurement of blood glucose levels with blood glucose reduction method using aGlucometer "On-Call Plus" Blood Glucose Monitoring System. The results of this study indicate thatkombucha tea is given to the animal Rattus norvegicus dose intake of 5,5 ml/rat, 8 ml/rat, and 11ml/trat has the potential to reduce blood glucose. Based on the results of two-way Anova testfollowed by Post Hoc Test showed no significant effect on the interaction between the factors dosekombucha tea with blood sampling time factor to the decline in blood glucose levels Rattusnorvegicus. The factor of kombucha tea dose, a dose of 5,5 ml/rat and 8 ml/rat has significantdifferences when compared with the control group. This means: (1) drinking kombucha tea causes adecrease in blood glucose levels ofRattus norvegicus,(2)consumption of kombucha tea, both 5,5 mland 8 ml causes a decrease in blood glucose levels, and (3)consumption of 5,5 ml and 8 ml giveeffect to decrease blood glucose levels were not different.Keywords: kombucha tea, blood glucose, Rattus norvegicus
