Figure 2. Blood glucose levels and area under the curve (AUC) of the experimental groups of mice. A) Glucose tolerance test (GTT) performed on the different groups of mice fed with standard diet (SD), standard-diet with cactus flour (SD-CF), high fat diet (HFD) and high fat diet with cactus flour (HFD-CF). B) AUC of GTT of the same groups. C) Insulin tolerance test (ITT) performed on all the groups. D) AUC of ITT of the groups. Analyzed with two-way ANOVA with a Bonferroni’s post hoc test, data shown in means ± SEM, n=7 *P<0.05 vs SD
