The effect of extract of Pseudocedrela kotschi on blood glucose of alloxan induced albino wistar rats was evaluated. Experimental animals received daily oral administration of extract of P. kotschi for 14 days. The effect of 200mg/kg dose was studied during the treatment period. There was a significant reduction in blood glucose concentration (p< 0.05) with the mean blood glucose of the different groups having 5.5 + 0.33 for normal control, 7.0 + 0.40 for diabetic control group and 4.8 + 0.24 for diabetic treated group. The findings of this study suggest that extract of P. kotchi has hypoglycemic effect.
