    Abstract: Kolaviron (KV) is an established antihyperglycemic agent in both normal and experimental diabetic rats. The role of ileum in glucose uptake in KV-treated normal and diabetic rats was investigated. Rats (150–180 g) were used and grouped into 4 (n=5/group). Groups 1 and 2 are the control (non-diabetic) and untreated diabetics respectively while group... Show More

    Abstract: The collection of heart rate variability (HRV) for health and performance observations have become prominent. However, each wearable device has proprietary algorithms that govern methods and timing of HRV capture and subsequent analysis. The purpose of this study was to evaluate HRV metrics taken from three, commonly used commercial wearables, and ... Show More
