Influence of oral MCT or LCT load on glycemia in Wistar and Zucker rats and in guinea pigs


, : Influence of oral MCT or LCT load on glycemia in Wistar and Zucker rats and in guinea pigs. Annales de Biologie Animale, Biochimie, Biophysique 19(3A): 625-635

Loading with medium-chain triglycerides (MCT) (containing fatty acids ranging from C6 to C12) by mouth in Wistar rats induced a decrease in plasma lactate, pyruvate and glucose. These variations were more marked in females than in males of the same age and were a direct function of the MCT load. Hypoglycaemia after MCT was also observed in previously starved rats and was definitely determined in guineapigs, but was not proved in genetically obese Zucker rats.
