We investigated the effect of dietary Korean proso-millet protein concentrate (PMP) on glycemic responses, plasma lipid levels, and the plasma level and gene expression of adiponectin in obese type 2 diabetic mice under normal and high-fat feeding conditions. The findings were that the feeding of PMP clearly elevated plasma high-density lipoprotein cholesterol (HDL cholesterol) and adiponectin levels and brought about effective reduction in the levels of glucose and insulin in mice under high… CONTINUE READING
