Table 2 Fasting blood glucose, plasma insulin levels and HOMA-IR after 20 weeks of dietary treatment

From: The long-term ingestion of a diet high in extra virgin olive oil produces obesity and insulin resistance but protects endothelial function in rats: a preliminary study

  Control EVOO M
Glucose (mg/dL) 92.5 ± 3.2 97.1 ± 4.2 113.1 ± 8.3*,&
Insulin (μU/mL) 22.51 ± 0.11 22.76 ± 0.52 22.93 ± 0.28
HOMA-IR 0.81 ± 0.03 1.07 ± 0.08* 1.14 ± 0.11*
  1. Values are expressed as the means ± SEM (n = 9 per group). *P < 0.05, significant difference compared with the control group; & P <0.05, significant difference compared with the EVOO group by one-way ANOVA.
