Figure 3:Body weight (A), food intake (B), and serum fasting glucose (C), 2 hours postprandial glucose (D), fasting insulin (E) and 2 hours postprandial insulin levels (F) of female rats during the gestational period. Data shown as mean ± SEM of six dams. NP+ND: Normal pregnant dams received normal diet, GD+FSD: Gestational diabetic dams received fatty sucrosed diet/minimal dose of STZ (25 mg/kg b.wt.). GD+FSD group (closed circle) exhibited significant increase (P<0.05) in the food intake and serum glucose level while it have a significant decrease (P<0.05) in their body weight and serum insulin level as compared to NP+ND group.
