From: GLP-I secretion in healthy and diabetic Wistar rats in response to aqueous extract of Momordica charantia

Parameter Group I Group II Group III Group IV
Liver Glycogen (mg/g) 23.91 ± 1.74 24.86 ± 1.712* 8.33 ± 0.741*** 22.61 ± 1.795r
Muscle Glycogen (mg/g) 19.75 ± 1.109 21.01 ± 1.19* 8.2 ± 0.958*** 17.25 ± 0.909r

  1. The values represent as Mean ± SEM for 6 rats each. * = (P > 0.05), ** = (P < 0.05), *** = (P < 0.01) represents comparison of Group-II, III with Group-I. p = P > 0.05), q = (P < 0.05), r = (P < 0.01) compared group IV with Group III. Group-I Normal Control; Group-II Normal treated (AEMC); Group-III Diabetic control; Group-IV diabetic treated (AEMC)
