The study was targeted at evaluating the modulatory effect of aqueous fruit pulp of Dialium guineense on hemeoxygenase, insulin, angiotensin converting enzyme (ACE) and possible hypoglycemia in streptozotocin-induced diabetic rats. Twenty four male Wistar rats were randomly divided into four groups control, diabetic control (Dm), diabetic + 300 mg/kg body weight Dialium guineese (Dm+ DG) and diabetic + 500 mg/kg Vitamin C (Dm +Vit. C).Animals were made diabetic by injecting a single dose of 55 mg/kg streptozotocin intraperitoneally. Dialium and Vitamin C were administered orally for three weeks. Result showed significant (p
