n 5 5  
Control 613.4 ± 58.5 8.3 ± 0.8 n.d.
Diabetic (3 mth) 382.2 ± 49.6* 34.0 ± 3.3* n.d.

  1. Values are means ± SD. Non-fasting blood glucose concentration was measured using the Accu-Chek Compact Plus glucometer (Roche, Laval, Quebec City, Canada) and blood glycated hemoglobin (HbA1c) levels by the A1CNow + system (Bayer Healthcare, Sunnyvale, CA). An asterisk (*) indicates statistically significant data with P ≤ 0.001 vs. control (using Student’s t-Test). N.d. = not determined.
