Fig. 3. High fructose intake activated the renin-angiotensin system. Serum renin, angiotensin II (Ang II), and aldosterone (Aldo; expressed as pg per ml of serum) were measured in rats drinking 20% fructose for two weeks. High fructose intake increased (A) renin and (B) Ang II levels. (C) High fructose intake did not affect Aldo levels. (D) Blood chemistry. Data are presented as mean ± standard error of six rats (*p = 0.05, **p = 0.01, control vs. fructose). ALT, alanine transaminase; AST, aspartate transaminase; HDLC, high density lipoprotein cholesterol; LDLC, low density lipoprotein cholesterol.
