Dietary protein restriction during lactation affects lipid metabolism and food intake in rats. The goals of this study were to determine the effect of a low-protein diet on a liver damage in lactating rats, to determine whether dietary protein restriction of lactating dams affects the liver health of their offspring and to elucidate the molecular mechanisms underlying the development of hepatic damage. Lactating Sprague-Dawley rats were fed either a control 20% protein diet or an 8% low-protein… CONTINUE READING
