Table 1 Serum total protein, albumin, triglyceride, total cholesterol, HDL-cholesterol, atherogenic index and PON1 activity of experimental rats after 20 weeks of treatment

From: Salt overload in fructose-fed insulin-resistant rats decreases paraoxonase-1 activity

  1. Values (mean ± SD) were obtained from groups CON (AIN diet and water for 20 weeks); HF (AIN diet + 20% fructose solution in water for 20 weeks) and HFS (8% NaCl in AIN93 diet + 20% fructose solution in water for 10 weeks after previous treatment for a period of 10 weeks with HF). Different superscript letters within the same row indicate significant difference at P < 0.05 by one-way ANOVA followed by Tukey’s test. High-density lipoprotein (HDL); paraoxonase1 activity (PON1).
