The results showed the methanol extract of leaves with a dose of 250 mg / kg had a most effective to decrease blood glucose levels for 14 days cemba leaf extract. Reviews these results were significantly different with normal control (105.6 mg / dl) and drug control (105.80 mg / dl), as well as groups of mice that were given the leaf extract cemba 150 and 500 mg / mm.
