  1. Insulin and glucose: Female ADAD chow (n = 9), ADUN chow (n = 7), UNAD chow (n = 6), ADAD high fat (n = 9), ADUN high fat (n = 6), UNAD high fat (n = 8); Male ADAD chow (n = 4), ADUN chow (n = 5), UNAD chow (n = 15), ADAD high fat (n = 4), ADUN high fat (n = 6), UNAD high fat (n = 14). Significant differences (P < 0.05) between the experimental groups are shown by letters a to e (read down column). Significant differences (P < 0.05) between genders shown by letters x and y (read across column).
