  1. *Results are expressed as mean. Values in rows with different capital letters are considered as significantly different [CON] vs. [DIQ], Values in rows with different lowercase are considered as significantly different [DIQ] vs. [LT, MT, HT]. PD: [CON] vs. [DIQ]; PT: [DIQ] vs. [LT, MT, HT]. AMM, blood ammonia; BUN, blood urea nitrogen; CK, creatine kinase; SOD, superoxide dismutase; T-AOC, total antioxidant capacity; IL-6, interleukin 6; TNF-α, tumor necrosis factor α
