Abstract Background Epidemiologic studies on the omega-3 fatty acids eicosapentaenoic acid (EPA) and docosahexaenoic acid (DHA) in heart failure are scarce, while one large intervention trial demonstrated a modest benefit. Methods This is a secondary analysis from the Interdisciplinary Network Heart Failure (INH) program. Patients hospitalized for systolic heart failure were enrolled and followed for 36 months. At baseline, whole blood samples from 899 patients were analyzed for fatty acid compo...

Vitamin D plays an important role in bone health, but dietary intakes are below recommendations. The purpose of this cross-sectional study was to compare perceptions of dietary vitamin adequacy with the biomarker of vitamin D exposure [25(OH)D] in two populations with (USA) and without (Germany) fortification among adults not using dietary supplements (n = 200). US adults were more racially diverse and younger, but did not differ with regard to educational attainment, income, UV exposure, or BMI...

Abstract Background Several studies have suggested that low levels of omega-3 fatty acids (n-3 PUFAs) including eicosapentaenoic acid (EPA) and docosahexaenoic acid (DHA) are associated with cardiovascular risk, major depression, sleep problems, inflammation and other health-related issues. So far, however, erythrocyte PUFA status in Chronic Fatigue Syndrome/Myalgic Encephalomyelitis (CFS/ME) has not been established. This study aimed to determine whether n-3 PUFA content and omega-3 index are a...

Abstract As currently defined, the Omega-3 Index comprises eicosapentaenoic acid (EPA) and docosahexaenoic acid (DHA), but not docosapentaenoic acid (DPA) in erythrocytes. In fish and many fish oils DPA is detectable (along with EPA and DHA), but sources rich in DPA are scarce. Purified DPA is available, and DPA is a precursor of biologically active molecules, but much remains to be learned about the effects of DPA in humans. In epidemiologic studies, erythrocyte DPA did not predict risk for tot...

Background:Omega-3 fatty acids (n − 3 FA) may have blood pressure (BP)-lowering effects in untreated hypertensive and elderly patients. The effect of n − 3 FA on BP in young, healthy adults remains unknown. The Omega-3 Index reliably reflects an individuals’ omega-3 status. We hypothesized that the

Study Objectives: Erythrocyte levels of eicosapentaenoic acid (EPA) and docosahexaenoic acid (DHA) (Omega-3 Index) were previously found to be associated with obstructive sleep apnea (OSA) at very low levels ( 5.7% in an intervention trial with EPA and DHA in OSA, comorbidities of OSA suggest a target range of 8% to 11%.
