The present study investigates the hypoglycaemic effect of Syzygium cordatum (Hochst.) [Myrtaceae] leaf extract in non-diabetic and streptozotocin (STZ)-induced diabetic rats. Oral glucose tolerance tests (OGGT) were conducted in non-diabetic and STZ-diabetic rats using orally administered glucose (1.4 g 100 g(-1) body weight) followed by either the leaf extract (6 mg 100 g(-1) body weight) or subcutaneous (sc) injection of metformin (50 mg 100 g(-1)). Weekly plasma glucose and terminal hepatic… CONTINUE READING
