Mean ± SD. All data were statistically analysed using analysis of variance (ANOVA) followed by the Tukey test. Means followed by different letters indicate significant differences between the groups (p<0.05). G1= non-diabetic, G2= non-diabetic treated with quercetin, G3= diabetic and G4= diabetic treated with quercetin.
