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.

The Preparation of Hyaluronic Acid Nanoparticles from Aspicilia lichens Using Bifido Bacteria for Help in the Treatment of Diabetes in Rats In Vivo

The synthesized hyaluronic acid helped to treat diabetes in rats and reduced their blood glucose levels significantly (statistical significance was declared at p < 0.05).

Compare effects of diets made with different saturated fatty acids on body weight regulation and metabolism in wister rats

This study was designed to investigate the effects of both the quality and quantity (low and high) of dietary fat in body weight regulation and alteration of blood parameters in an animal model.



A Choline-Deficient Diet Exacerbates Fatty Liver but Attenuates Insulin Resistance and Glucose Intolerance in Mice Fed a High-Fat Diet

It is concluded that liver fat accumulation per se does not cause insulin resistance during high-fat feeding and that choline deficiency may shunt potentially toxic free fatty acids toward innocuous storage triglyceride in the liver.

Diabetes and the Mediterranean diet: a beneficial effect of oleic acid on insulin sensitivity, adipocyte glucose transport and endothelium-dependent vasoreactivity.

Change from polyunsaturated to monounsaturated diet in type 2 diabetes reduced insulin resistance and restored endothelium-dependent vasodilatation, suggesting an explanation for the anti-atherogenic benefits of a Mediterranean-type diet.

Diet promotes beta-cell loss by apoptosis in prediabetic nonobese diabetic mice.

HFHP diet was associated with impaired glucose metabolism and high insulin release followed by enhanced diabetes incidence, and diabetes was promoted by increased rate of cell death over beta-cell neogenesis.

Diet Promotes β-Cell Loss by Apoptosis in Prediabetic Nonobese Diabetic Mice.

The effect of diet on β-cells and glucose metabolism in NOD mice before diabetes onset is investigated and it is reported that a protein-rich diet accelerated diabetes incidence in nonobese diabetic (NOD) mice.

Dietary stearic acid reduces cholesterol absorption and increases endogenous cholesterol excretion in hamsters fed cereal-based diets.

The data suggest that reduced plasma cholesterol concentration in hamsters fed high 18:0 diets may be influenced by reduced cholesterol absorption and increased excretion of endogenous cholesterol.

Dietary Monounsaturated Fatty Acids but not Saturated Fatty Acids Preserve the Insulin Signaling Pathway via IRS-1/PI3K in Rat Skeletal Muscle

The beneficial effect of dietary MUFA on insulin sensitivity is associated with a conserved IRS-1/PI3K insulin signaling pathway which was altered by dietary SFA.

A high-fat, ketogenic diet causes hepatic insulin resistance in mice, despite increasing energy expenditure and preventing weight gain.

Despite preventing weight gain in mice, KD induces hepatic insulin resistance secondary to increased hepatic diacylglycerol content, which may have potentially important clinical implications.

Positional distribution of stearic acid and oleic acid in a triacylglycerol and dietary calcium concentration determines the apparent absorption of these fatty acids in rats.

The lowered stearic acid absorption from 2-oleoyl-distearate compared with 1-ole soybean oil might have been due to the greater formation of insoluble calcium and magnesium soaps in the intestine.
