ALA decreased body portion of fat mass of OLETF rats. The end of the 8 week study, a epididymal fat pads, c heart d liver and e pancreas weighted for morphometric assessment and expressed as tissue mass g per g body weight. b The representative macrographs of hematoxylin and eosin (H&E) stained epididymal and retroperitoneal fat in LETO and OLETF rats (X200). Scale bar = 200 μm. Data presented as mean ± SEM (n = 10 rats per group). *: P < 0.05 vs. LETO-C. #: P < 0.05 vs. OLETF-C
