Data set from an experiment where catheterised Iberian (obese breed) and Landrace (lean breed) pigs of the same weight were challenged intraarteriously with a glucose load. Blood samples were serially taken for 180min and analyzed for glucose, insulin, lactate, triglycerides, cholesterol, creatinine, albumin and urea. Insulin sensitivity indices were calculated and analysed.
