DiabeticDogs: Lactic Acid Turnover in Dogs

Description Format Details Source

Description

The rate of lactic acid turnover was measured by two methods for normal and diabetic dogs.

Format

A data frame with 20 observations on the following 4 variables.

Dog

Code for individual dogs (d1 through d10)

Method

Tracer method to measure response (infuse or inject)

Operation

Pancreas removed to make the dog diabetic? (no or yes)

Response

Rate for biochemical turnover of lactic acid

Details

Five dogs had their pancreas removed to make them diabetic (Operation=yes), the other five were normal (Operation=no). The rate of turnover of lactic acid was measured for each dog by two methods, infusion and injection.
