Nutritional Recovery Promotes Hypothalamic Inflammation in Rats during Adulthood

Table 1

Absolute and relative food intake, final body weight, epididymal white adipose tissue (EWAT) weight, liver weight, liver glycogen content, serum albumin, serum glucose, serum insulin, and serum leptin concentrations of control (C), recovered (R), and low protein (LP) rats. Values presented are the mean ± SEM for rats per group. Mean values with unlike superscript letters were significantly different ( < 0.05, LSD test).
