We describe effect of AG on blood glucose and hematological parameters in diabetic mice. Diabetes was induced in 60 BALB/c mice by intraperitoneal injection of 60 mg/kg streptozotocin (STZ). Fasting blood glucose (FBG) was determined daily and mice with > 250mg/kg were used for further study. After 3 days, groups of 10 diabetic mice each, were gavaged 20 mg/kg glibenclamide orally or 10, 20, 40 and 80 mg/kg AG aqueous extract (AGAE) daily for 20 days. Two groups served as non-diabetic and untreated diabetic controls. Blood for fasting glucose and hematological parameters were taken at 1, 4, 7, 10, 13, 16 and 20 days. Results suggested that treatment with 40 and 80 mg/kg AGAE reduced FBG and affected blood cell and platelet counts.
