From: Effect of taurine supplementation on hyperhomocysteinemia and markers of oxidative stress in high fructose diet induced insulin resistance

Parameter Group
  Control Taurine Fructose-Fed Fructose-Fed + Taurine
Glucose (mmol/l) 4.62 ± 0.28 4.09 ± 0.19 5.57 ± 0.25a,b 5.35 ± 0.23b
Insulin(μU/ml) 32.26 ± 4.76 38.24 ± 4.15 109.5 ± 7.37a,b 50.71 ± 4.45c
HOMA 6.68 ± 1.13 6.95 ± 0.79 27.24 ± 2.44a,b 11.9 ± 0.88c
  1. Values are expressed as mean ± S.E.M. Number of rats per group n = 8.
  2. HFD, high fructose diet; HOMA, homeostasis model assessment of insulin resistance.
  3. (a) Significant difference from control group (P ≤ 0.05).
  4. (b) Significant difference from taurine group (P ≤ 0.05).
  5. (c) Significant difference from fructose-fed group (P ≤ 0.05).
