identify this plant

Philippines Ph

somebody gave this plant and said it's a herbal med for diabetes? But she also do not know the name of this plant.
Descriptions: smells like a guava leaf, alternate leaf nodes, netted veins, bladed leaf, stem with alternate dark red lines, texture smooth. Please identify. Thank you.




I dont know what it is, sorry, but although I can appreciate the benefits of treating minor ailments with natural herbs etc I would be VERY careful about treating something like Diabetes with a plant, Alice.
