From: Metabolic variables of obese dogs with insulin resistance supplemented with yeast beta-glucan

Variables OG Experimental groups SOG
Cholesterol (mg/dL) 286.28 ± 26.06A 154.0 ± 14.66B 191.57 ± 24.74B
Triglycerides (mg/dL) 151.00 ± 12.28A 86.28 ± 8.70B 108.85 ± 9.32 B
  1. Reference ranges: Cholesterol = 135-270mg/dL; Triglycerides = 20-112mg/d L[28]. A, B - Averages followed by the same letter in the rows do not differ from each other, as determined by Student’s t-test (p<0.05). OG: obese group, LG: lean group, SOG: supplemented obese group.
