  1. Values are mean±SD. Rats in the normal-control (Normal-CON) and diabetic-control (Diabetic-CON) was fed high fat diets while diabetic rats in the CKJ, HTL, and CKJ+HTL groups were provided with high fat diets supplemented with 5% CKJ, 5% HTL, and 5% CKJ+ 5% HTL, respectively.
  2. *Significantly different among the groups at p<0.05 by one-way ANOVA.
  3. a,b,c,dValues in the same row with different superscripts were significantly different in Tukey test at P<0.05.
