Table 2 Blood glucose and insulin levels

From: Treatment of diabetic mice with undenatured whey protein accelerates the wound healing process by enhancing the expression of MIP-1α, MIP-2, KC, CX3CL1 and TGF-β in wounded tissue

Blood insulin level (ng/ml)

  1. *P < 0.05 Diabetic vs control.
  2. ‡ P < 0.005 Diabetic + WP vs control.
  3. # P < 0.05 Diabetic + WP vs diabetic.
  4. The levels of blood glucose and insulin were monitored at the indicated time points post-injury. Representative results of 10 individual mice from each group are shown as the mean ± SEM. *P < 0.05, diabetic vs. control; +P < 0.05, diabetic + WP vs. control; #P < 0.05, diabetic + WP vs. diabetic (ANOVA with Tukey’s post-test).
