Fig. 1

Oral β-hydroxybutyrate increases ketonemia: a βHB salts significantly increased ketonemia after 30 min and sustained it for at least 2 h; b βHB salts did not change glycemia during glucose overload (75 mg/100 g b.w.); c, d βHB salts disrupts negative correlation between glycemia and ketosis after glucose overload (p = 0.378). n = 5 each group in all data. Two-Way ANOVA with Bonferroni post hoc test. **p < 0.01; ***p < 0.001. Data represent as mean (SEM)
