INTRODUCTION

The use of energy drinks has significantly increased in the Caribbean and worldwide as aggressive marketing campaigns target adolescents and young adults. More than 30% of adolescents reported using energy drinks and surveys have revealed that energy drinks are consumed by 30% to 50% of adolescents and young adults (1, 2).

Effect of Moderate Ethanol Administration on Biochemical Indices in Streptozotocin-diabetic Wistar Rats

Issue: 
Pages: 
3–9
Synopsis: 
Moderate ethanol administration did not affect fasting blood glugose and HbA1c, but altered the lipid profile of streptozotocin-diabetic rats. Moderate ethanol intake may further increase the risk of complications in diabetes.

 

ABSTRACT

Objective: This study was designed to evaluate the effect of moderate ethanol administration on the biochemical indices in streptozotocin (STZ)-diabetic rats.
