  • Data are means ± SD.

  • *

    * Blood glucose levels were measured by one-touch glucometer. (The maximum level for the measurement is 600 mg/dl. Greater values are registered as “high” and were registered as 600 mg/dl when doing the analysis.)

  • The number of mice with blood glucose levels >600 mg/dl. At each age, blood glucose was significantly higher in OVE26 mice (P < 0.05). Body weight was not significantly different at any of these ages.
