Aside from being a social stigma, obesity is frequently associated with insulin resistance, in turn linked to development of type II diabetes, hypertension, hyperlipidemia, and atherosclerosis – the so-called metabolic syndrome.This study investigated the biochemical changes in serum urea and creatinine levels in obese male rats treated with aque...
