A High-Fat Diet Causes Impairment in Hippocampal Memory and Sex-Dependent Alterations in Peripheral Metabolism

Figure 3

HFD did not significantly alter GTT or ITT in female rats. In contrast to males, female rats on CD and HFD exhibited relatively little diet-dependent changes in glucose- (a) or insulin-tolerance (b). Additionally, no dietary effects were seen in the integrated area under or above the curve (resp.) for either glucose-tolerance testing (c) or insulin-tolerance testing (d).
