     Abstract Diabetes mellitus (DM) is the disease which can cause hyperglycemic state leading to many complication such as increases risk of infection especially bacteria and fungus. However, information about interaction of parasitic infection and DM is limited. DM has high prevalence in northeast Thailand where opisthorchiasis caused by liver fluke Opisthorchis viverrini infection is also endermic. The aim of this study was to investigate the effect of DM on O. viverrini development at 1 month post-infection in hamster induced by streotozotocin and non-induced group. The results revealed that liver per body weight ratio in the experimental group was significantly higher than that in non-induced group (0.036 0.003 vs. 0.058 0.013, P = 0.012). For the worm size of liver fluke in experimental group was smaller than in control non-induced group (worm legth; 3,982.76 315.24 µm vs. 3,195.16 513.76 µm, P = 0.025, worm width; 787.33 137.77 µm vs. 712.87 127.54 µm, P = 0.433). These results suggests that DM has the effect on both host and O. viverrini fecundity by changing in physiological conditions.
