  • OF DISSERTATION A DIET ENRICHED IN STEARIC ACID PROTECTS AGAINST THE PROGRESSION OF TYPE 2 DIABETES IN LEPTIN RECEPTOR DEFICIENT MICE (DB/DB) Dietary saturated fat intake contributes to diabetes and cardiovascular disease, as shown in numerous animal and human studies. [...] Key Method Leptin receptor deficient mice (db/db) and wild-type mice were fed either chow or a high fat diet enriched in either stearic acid or oleic acid for ten weeks.Expand Abstract
