TQ restores the lipid profile in the offspring of diabetic dams. The levels of HDL-C (A), LDL-C (B), cholesterol (C), and MDA (D) were determined in offspring (8 weeks old) born to control dams (CD; black bars), diabetic dams (DD; gray bars), and diabetic dams supplemented with TQ (DD + TQ; hatched bars) as described in the Materials and Methods section. The accumulated data from 10 individual mice from each group are expressed as the mean level of each lipid ± SEM. *P < 0.05 for diabetic vs. control; #P < 0.05 for diabetic + TQ vs. diabetic; +P < 0.05 for diabetic + TQ vs. control.
