To study the cellular mechanisms underlying fructose-induced insulin resistance in rats, the effects of fructose feeding on insulin-stimulated glucose transport, oxidation and incorporation into lipids in epididymal adipocytes were evaluated in 27 normal and 27 noninsulin-dependent diabetic male Sprague-Dawley rats. But researchers at Saint Luke’s Mid America Heart Institute have found that fructose may be even unhealthier than other forms of sugar when it is added to foods. Even cosmetics have high fructose corn syrup inside. Meta-analysis was conducted by RevMan 5.3. Animals were fed either a control (glucose/cornstarch) or a 40% (wt:wt) fructose and cornstarch diet and then sacrificed after 7 or 12.5 weeks. Plasma FR concentrations were significantly higher in FR-fed v. The results suggest that in controlled insulin-dependent diabetes moderate amounts of fructose can be included in the diet without any adverse effects on the glucose balance.
