Figure 1. A, Blood glucose levels in fructose-fed (N = 5) and control (N = 8) female rats during insulin tolerance test. *P < 0.05 compared to control group (two-way ANOVA followed by the Student Newmann Keuls test). B, Rate constant of glucose disappearance (KITT) of frutose-fed (N = 5) and control (N = 8) female rats. *P < 0.05 compared to control group (Student unpaired t-test). C, Positive Pearson correlation (r = 0.8, P = 0.02) obtained by linear regression between cardiac vagal tonus and KITT for frutose-fed (N = 5) and control (N = 8) female rats. *P < 0.05 vs control group.
