An investigation of liver triglyceride (TG) levels and development of fatty liver following fasting. Animals were surveyed for blood glucose/insulin metabolism and tolerance, blood and liver lipid metabolism, liver and body weights, and overall fat composition. An analysis (3 strains) of the effect of different fasting times (0h, 6h, 14h) for BHB, FFA, and hTG is available here.

Procedures conducted:
• body weight 
• glucose tolerance  0 to 120 min after 10% glucose i.p. 5h fast.
• insulin tolerance  0 to 120 min after insulin i.p. 5h fast.
• lipid profile  Cholesterol, triglycerides, free fatty acids, phospholipids. 5h fast, plasma. Hepatic triglycerides.
• metabolic panel  Glucose, beta-hydroxybutyrate (plasma). No fast.
• organ weights  Liver weight.
• DXA  Fat mass.
• hormone quantification  Insulin level, 30 min post-injection in glucose tolerance test. 10% glucose. 5h fast.
