Variations in blood glucose levels. Open circles and dotted line: 0.9% NaCl (NC) group (n = 5); squares and gray line: hypertonic sodium bicarbonate (HSB) group (n = 5); closed circles and black line: hypertonic sodium lactate (HSL) group (n = 5). Results are expressed as median with interquartile range. When not displayed, error bars are within the symbols. *P <0.05, NC versus HSL #
P <0.05; HSB versus HSL; °P <0.05, NC versus HSB.
