High-protein diet: effect on insulin secretion patterns from streptozotocin-diabetic rats and mice.

In the present study we have investigated the effect of a high-protein feeding on glucose induced-insulin secretion patterns from high dose streptozotocin (SZ) injected rats and mice, and from mice given multiple low doses of SZ. For this purpose male rats and mice were fed either a high-protein, carbohydrate-free diet, or control diets, before and after i… (More)
