BACKGROUND Prospective studies in humans examining the effects of fructose consumption on biological markers associated with the development of metabolic syndrome are lacking. Therefore we investigated the relative effects of 10 wks of fructose or glucose consumption on plasma uric acid and RBP-4 concentrations, as well as liver enzyme (AST, ALT, and GGT) activities in men and women. METHODS As part of a parallel arm study, older (age 40-72), overweight and obese male and female subjects (BMI… CONTINUE READING
