Use of the ZDF Rat to Model Dietary Fat Induced Hypercoagulability is Limited by Progressive and Fatal Nephropathy

Zucker diabetic fatty (ZDF) rats are used widely as an animal model of metabolic syndrome and insulin resistance. Our study focused on the effects of high versus low dietary fat on the development of Type 2 diabetes in obese male ZDF rats (fa/fa), including biomarkers to detect early signs of hypercoagulability and vascular injury ...
