From: Periodic 48 h feed withdrawal improves glucose tolerance in growing pigs by enhancing adipogenesis and lipogenesis

Figure 2

Blood glucose concentration curves during the glucose tolerance test of castrated pigs at 21 wk of age undergoing control (no feed withdrawal), single feed withdrawal (FWx1) for 48 h at 19 wk or multiple feed withdrawal (FWx4), FW for 24 h at age 7 and 11 wk and for 48 h FW at 15 and 19 wk. Trends (p = .1048 and .0968) towards decreased glucose concentrations were observed for fasting and 120 min post glucose consumption samples respectively from pigs in the FW treatments relative to values for pigs in the control treatment (n = 3).
