Postprandial time course of plasma insulin and glucose. Insulin (μU/mL) (A) and glucose (mg/dL) (B) concentrations were assessed in plasma collected from healthy control and metabolic syndrome subjects following consumption of a high fat soy or dairy breakfast. Healthy control subjects are represented with solid lines and closed squares (■) for the dairy meal and closed circles (●) for the soy meal. Metabolic syndrome (MetS) subjects are represented with dashed lines and open squares (□) for the dairy meal and open circles (○) for the soy meal. The graphs represent mean values ± SEM; n = 10 per group. * = Significantly different than baseline within the Metabolic syndrome subjects irrespective of meal P < 0.05. # = significantly different from baseline within healthy control subjects irrespective of meal P < 0.05. † = Significant difference between subjects with metabolic syndrome and healthy control irrespective of meal P < 0.05.
