Development of an alternative non-obese non-genetic rat model of type 2 diabetes using caffeine and streptozotocin.
The aim of the present study was to develop an alternative non-obese non-genetic rat model of type 2 diabetes (T2D). Six-week-old male Sprague-Dawley rats were randomly divided into six groups, namely: Normal Control (NC), ...
Fructose-fed streptozotocin-injected rat : an alternative model for type 2 diabetes.
The principal objective of this study was to develop an alternative non-genetic rat model for type 2 diabetes (T2D). Six-week-old male Sprague-Dawley rats (190.56 ± 23.60g) were randomly divided into six groups namely: ...
Investigation of anti-diabetic properties of Psidium guajava leaf in streptozocin induced diabetic rats.
Diabetes mellitus results in chronic hyperglycaemia, leading to defects in carbohydrate, fat and protein metabolism. Diabetes mellitus is also linked with elevated plasma cholesterol and triglyceride levels, which may ...
Effects of commercially available non-nutritive sweeteners in an experimentally induced rat model of type 2 diabetes.
Non-nutritive sweeteners (NNSs) are becoming more popular as sugar substitutes for diabetic patients. Most studies have reported conflicting results and have used NNSs in their pure form; and not in the form consumed by ...
The measurement of glomerular basement membrane components and glycated albumin as improved markers of incipient diabetic nephropathy.
Diabetes causes early structural changes to the glomerular basement membrane (GBM), which alters its function and leads to loss of protein in urine. Formation of advanced glycation endproducts (AGEs) is one mechanism ...
