Background: Animals fed high-fat diets have been shown to develop hyperglycemia, insulin resistance, hyperlipidemia, and moderate obesity, which resemble the human metabolic syndrome. Obesity, the metabolic syndrome, and some thiazolidinediones, which act as insulin sensitizers, may increase oxidative stress, and/or influence the levels of cellular reducing equivalents and homeostasis.
