Insulin resistance indexes of low- and high-phytoestrogen–fed mice

MiceAUC by GTTAUC by ITTInsulin resistance index
Low phytoestrogen2,916 ± 187964 ± 532,849 ± 297
High phytoestrogen2,083 ± 136*799 ± 531,747 ± 210
  • Data are means ± SE. Insulin resistance indexes for animals from each group are shown, calculated as the product of AUC of the GTT and the ITT.
