Effect of FRF on plasma glucose levels and insulin titres in normoglycaemic and mSTZ diabetic mice.

Plasma Glucose (mg/dl)

Plasma insulin (μIU/ml)


Control

107.67 ± 4.50

22.64 ± 0.75


Diabetic

249.50 ± 8.97

12.76 ± 1.02


Diabetic + FRF 100

180.76 ± 7.76δ

13.65 ± 0.76


Diabetic + FRF 250

167.60 ± 8.30δ

17.86 ± 0.78β


Diabetic + FRF 500

163.98 ± 7.22δ

17.92 ± 0.72α


All values are expressed as ± SEM (n = 6) where • = p < 0.01, ■ = p < 0.001, ♦ = p < 0.0001 when control group was compared with rest of the groups and α = p < 0.01, β = p < 0.01, δ = p < 0.01 when diabetic group was compared with FRF 100, 250, 500 groups
