IVGTT supports the conclusion that MetS/D-A swine exhibit impaired glucose clearance. a Blood glucose levels were tested for 60 min after a bolus of glucose (0.5 mg/kg body weight). p values are compared to lean group. b Area under the curve analysis shows impaired glucose clearance in the MetS-A and MetS/D-A groups. c MetS/D-A swine exhibited a fourfold higher fasting blood glucose before the bolus of glucose was administered. *p < 0.05 compared with lean swine; p < 0.05 compared with MetS swine; p < 0.05 compared with MetS-A swine. (Lean = 10; MetS = 5; MetS-A = 8; MetS/D-A = 8.)
