The hypoglycemic effect of aqueous extract of Carica papaya leaves was investigated on alloxan monohydrate induced diabetic mice. The blood glucose levels were measured at 0, 2, 4 and 6 h after the treatment. The aqueous extract of C. papaya (250 mg/kg) reduced the blood glucose of normal mice from 85.50±1.22 to 64.67±3.27 mg/dl, 3 h after oral administration of the extract (P<0.05). It also significantly lowered blood glucose level in alloxan induced diabetic mice from 331.67±4.90 to 130.33±6… CONTINUE READING
