Elevated values of circulating triglycerides were observed in streptozotocin-hyperglycemic rat while cholesterol concentrations did not differ from controls. Daily oral administration of sodium metavanadate to these diabetic animals normalized blood glucose values without raising the reduced levels of insulin. Concomitant with the normalization of the glycemia, the elevated triglyceride values found in diabetic rats were also corrected. Lipoprotein lipase activity in adipose and cardiac tissues… CONTINUE READING
