Table 3 Bone mineral density and content of total femur, femoral neck and distal femur: P values for 2-way ANOVA

From: Bone mineral density and content during weight cycling in female rats: effects of dietary amylase-resistant starch

  Diet Effect Weight Cycling Effect Diet/Weight Cycling Interaction
BMD Total Femur p < 0.01 NSa NS
BMD Femoral Neck p < 0.01 NS NS
BMD Distal Femur p < 0.001 NS NS
BMC Total Femur p < 0.05 p < 0.05 NS
BMC Femoral Neck p < 0.05 NS NS
BMC Distal Femur p < 0.01 NS NS
  1. NS = ≥0.05
  2. Results are for the right femur
  3. ap = 0.09
  4. Diet Effect = normal diets versus resistant starch diets
  5. Weight Cycling Effect = 0, 1, or 2 rounds of weight cycling
