Abstract: 

Forty five adult male rats of mean weight 220-250g were divided into 3 groups and studied by the following procedure: group 1 experimental group were included of 15 rats which were exposed to 50Hz, 500μT in solenoid 10 hr/day for 2 months, group 2: sham operated group were included of 15 rats which were kept in condition similar to the group 1 except in off solenoid and group 3 control group: were included 15 rats which were kept in normal condition of animal room. All the above groups were kept at room temperature of 22 oc and 12/12hr light dark condition. After two months each rat was anaesthetized by ethyl ether and blood sampling was done from its tail. The blood sample was used to measure the insulin, glucose, triglyceride, and cholesterol. The data were analyzed by the ANOVA and Duncan test at p<.05 as significant level. The results showed that serum glucose of the EMF exposed group was significantly higher and their weight gain and serum insulin were much less than those of other groups. However their cholesterol and triglyceride were not significantly different from other groups. It has been concluded that prolong exposure to EMF may have an inhibitory effect on insulin secretion.
