Ophiocordyceps formosana ameliorated the hyperglycermic characteristic of STZ-induced diabetic mice. a Changes in body weight of mice. b Morphological appearance of visceral adiposity in mice. The arrows show the visualized adipose tissues. c The subcutaneous fat (SAT) to body weight ratio. d The glucose concentration in plasmas at the end of the experiment. e The insulin concentration in plasma at the end of the experiment. f The area under curve (AUC) of glucose tolerance test (GTT) after treatments. Data were expressed as mean ± S.E.M. # represents p ≤ 0.05, STZ-PBS vs. STZ-OFE and *** represents p ≤ 0.001, control vs. STZ-PBS, STZ-Rosi and STZ- OFE. Results of two groups were compared by the Student’s t test. One way ANOVA followed by Tukey’s post hoc test was performed for multiple comparisons. Mean in a row with different superscripts is significantly different (p ≤ 0.05). Values are mean ± SEM, n = 6 in control group and n = 8 in the all STZ-induced groups
