Figure 3

Graphic representation depicts the total area under curve to glucose (panel A) and insulin (panel B) serum levels after oral glucose test to control lean (LS, n = 12) subjects compared to normoinsulinemic (NI, n = 14) and hyperinsulinemic (HI, n = 12) volunteer subgroups. Also shows the estimating of quantitative insulin-sensitivity check (QUICKI) index (panel C) values for lean and obese subjects. Results are expressed as mean ± SD. The level of significance was set at * P ≤ 0.05 or **P ≤ 0.01 (non-parametric analysis by Kruskal-Wallis test).
