Table 1 Physical characteristics of ND and HFD groups

From: Effects of a high-fat diet on superoxide anion generation and membrane fluidity in liver mitochondria in rats

  ND HFD
Abdominal circumference (cm) 18.8 ± 0.3 21.7 ± 0.3*
Liver wet weight (g) 9.8 ± 0.2 10.2 ± 0.4
Liver/Weight ratio 2.89 ± 0.03* 2.47 ± 0.06
  1. Mean ± SE
  2. Values are after the consumption of each diet for 11 weeks measured at dissection (n = 6). The HFD group had a higher abdominal circumference than the ND group, with a lower liver/body weight ratio (*p < 0.05)
