Photo chemicals are chemical compounds produced by plants. They are endocrine distruptors known for ages to affect blood glucose metabolism. Blood glucose homeostasis is a balance between gluconeogenesis, glycogenolysis and glycolysis among others. Gluconeogenesis which is the production of glucose from non carbohydrate source is influenced by lip genesis. Phyto chemical effects on glucose metabolism may enhance or inhibit these processes. Phyto-chemical enhancing glycolysis results in hypoglycaemia or inducing gluconeogenesis or glycogenolysis causing hyperglycaemia. These hyperglycaemic or hypoglycaemic
