Changes in plasma fatty acid (FA) composition and desaturase activities are observed in metabolic syndrome (MS). However, whether these changes are a reflection of dietary intakes of fats and FAs is not well established. The current study was aimed at assessing plasma FA composition and desaturase enzyme activities as biomarkers of dietary intakes in subjects with MS. Case control study was done on 41 MS patients and was compared with age matched 45 controls. Dietary intakes, anthropometric and ...

Metabolic Syndrome (MS) is a combination of physiological factors that result in increased risk for developing Cardio Vascular Diseases (CVD). One factor that has traditionally been accepted as being athero-protective is High Density Lipoprotein (HDL). However increasing reports suggest that plasma levels of HDL-C do not reflect its functionality, which is mainly attributed to its cargo of antioxidant enzymes. The study was aimed at assessing key HDL-associated enzymes as potentially better biom...

Summary Aim To assess dietary fat and fatty acid (FA) intakes and to correlate it with red blood cell (RBC) FA composition in women with newly diagnosed breast, cervical and ovarian cancer. Methods 185 women who were newly diagnosed with breast, cervical or ovarian cancer were recruited for the study and dietary information was obtained using food frequency questionnaires. RBC fatty acid composition was analyzed in a subset of 96 women with cancers (35 breast cancer, 31 cervical cancer and 30 ov...

Recommended dietary allowances for fat and fatty acid (FA) intakes are set on global standards aimed at prevention of lifestyle diseases. Yet, the fat composition of a diet is both ethnic/region specific as well as income dependent. Indian diets are predominantly vegetarian and relatively low in fat. Furthermore, the main sources of fat are of plant origin rather than animal origin. This results in a diet that is relatively low in saturated FA, high in n-6 polyunsaturated fatty acids (PUFA), and...
