Oral glucose tolerance test in rats fed a control or high-sucrose diet. Blood glucose concentrations were measured by a glucometer after a 10 h fast at 0 and 15, 30, 34, 60, 90 and 120 min following gavage with 5g/kg of an oral glucose preload at (A) 4 weeks and (B) 8 weeks of treatment. Two-way repeated measures analysis of variance showed a significant main effect of diet and time on blood glucose concentrations at 4 and 8 weeks.
