Table 2 Plasma glucose and protein concentrations and HOMA-IR index

From: Greater insulin sensitivity in calorie restricted rats occurs with unaltered circulating levels of several important myokines and cytokines

  1. *Indicates a statistically significant difference (P ≤ 0.05) between the AL and CR groups as determined by unpaired Student’s t-test. Values are mean ± SEM for n=8-12 per treatment group. HOMA-IR Index; [glucose (mg·dl-1) x insulin (μU·ml-1)/405].
