  1. Analysis of fasting blood glucose, body weight and food intake in control db/db mice and db/db mice receiving dietary supplementation with 1% (w/w) EGCG or 0.0021% (w/w) rosiglitazone (Rosi) for up to 10 weeks. Data is expressed as mean ± SEM for 9 mice in each group. * denotes P < 0.05 for a chance difference vs controls using one-way ANOVA in conjunction with Dunnett's multiple comparison test
