Fig. 2. Effects of high fructose intake on systolic blood pressure (BP) and glucose tolerance. (A) Systolic blood pressure was measured using a tail-cuff method in control rats (n = 6) and rats drinking 20% fructose (n = 6) for a period of two weeks. High fructose intake induced hypertension. (B) Glucose tolerance tests (GTTs) were performed on rats at the end of the first week. (C) The corresponding area under the curve (AUC) values were obtained. (D) A second GTT was performed on rats at the end of the second week. (E) Corresponding AUC values were obtained. High fructose intake caused glucose intolerance. Data are presented as mean ± standard error of six rats (*p = 0.05, **p = 0.01, control vs. fructose).
