Table 2 Body weight, blood glucose and serum triglyceride level in experimental groups. Rats treated with high-fat, high-protein, low-calorie, low-calorie high-protein diets for 10 weeks. Control adult and old rats treated with rodent standard pellet. After behavioral tests, rats were euthanized and blood were collected (n = 6)

From: High-protein and low-calorie diets improved the anti-aging Klotho protein in the rats’ brain: the toxic role of high-fat diet
