Visceral fat accumulation and vascular complications associated with VMH lesioning of spontaneously non-insulin-dependent diabetic GK rat.

Abstract

OBJECTIVE We have reported that ventromedial hypothalamic (VMH) lesions induced marked hyperglycemia and a distinct reduction in pancreatic insulin content during short-term observation in male Goto-Kakizaki (GK) rats, an animal model for non-insulin-dependent diabetes mellitus (NIDDM) (Metabolism 43: 32-37, 1994). We investigated the long-term effect of… (More)
