Effect of a high-fat diet (HFD) and antibiotic pretreatment on fasting blood glucose (FBG), insulin, and HOMA-IR levels in different sexes. The FBG (a), serum insulin (b) and HOMA-IR (c) levels were examined in male and female mice with or without antibiotic pretreatment. The AHFD group was pretreated with antibiotics for 4 weeks, followed by HFD feeding. *p < 0.05, **p < 0.01, ***p < 0.001
