Data are means ± SE with the numbers of rats in parentheses. Plasma insulin and blood glucose concentrations were determined using commercial kits. Statistically significant differences from LOFAT rats are indicated:

*

P < 0.05. There were no statistically significant effects of acute long-chain ω-3 enrichment of the high-saturated fat diet versus high-fat feeding.
