The effect of four weeks co-administration of gongronema latifolium
and ocimum gratissimum was studied in alloxan induced diabetic rats. At the end of the period of extract administration, results showed that extracts caused a slight decrease in blood glucose, alkaline
phosphatase, total bilirubin and albumin levels, although not significant compared to normal control (P > 0.05), but caused an elevated AST and ALT levels (P < 0.05). Dat a suggest that coadministration of these extracts may be harmful to the liver.
