Blood glucose level of control, diabetic and vanadium-treatment mice were
measured on a weekly basis and the body weight of each group were measured
daily. The final measured results at the end of three weeks vanadium treatment are
shown. Data are presented as mean±S.D
**p<0.01 vs. Control, p<0.05 vs. Diabetes.
