Role of Dietary Fatty Acids in Fatty Liver and Insulin Resistance
The purpose of this study is to investigate whether substituting saturated fats with polyunsaturated fats reduces fatty liver and improves insulin action and other metabolic variables in abdominally obese subjects
1. Investigate if substituting saturated fats with polyunsaturated fats reduces steatosis and improves hepatic and/or peripheral insulin action in abdominally obese subjects with type 2 diabetes
2. Investigate if changes of lipogenic enzymes in response to dietary fat intervention are associated with changes in hepatic/peripheral insulin sensitivity or liver fat content
3. Investigate potential mechanism of the effects of dietary fatty acids; e.g. gene expression and lipogenic enzyme activity

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions
A diet that contains limited amounts of CARBOHYDRATES. This is in distinction to a regular DIET.
Regular course of eating and drinking adopted by a person or animal. This does not include DIET THERAPY, a specific diet prescribed in the treatment of a disease.
A diet that contains limited amounts of fat with less than 30% of calories from all fats and less than 10% from saturated fat. Such a diet is used in control of HYPERLIPIDEMIAS. (From Bondy et al, Metabolic Control and Disease, 8th ed, pp468-70; Dorland, 27th ed)
A diet which is devoid of GLUTENS from WHEAT; BARLEY; RYE; and other wheat-related varieties. The diet is designed to reduce exposure to those proteins in gluten that trigger INFLAMMATION of the small intestinal mucosa in patients with CELIAC DISEASE.
A course of food intake that is high in FATS and low in CARBOHYDRATES. This diet provides sufficient PROTEINS for growth but insufficient amount of carbohydrates for the energy needs of the body. A ketogenic diet generates 80-90% of caloric requirements from fats and the remainder from proteins.
The purpose of this study is to learn more about how diet affects the hormone ghrelin. Ghrelin is made in the stomach and causes appetite to increase. Learning about ghrelin will help the...
To test the effects of a modified Atkins high fat diet on endothelial function, insulin resistance and energy balance.
This study is designed to address the hypothesis that in obese patients with type 2 diabetes mellitus (DM), a low carbohydrate diet not specifically restricted in calories compared to low...
This study will examine the effects of a low carbohydrate diet versus a high carbohydrate diet on weight loss.
Overweight and obesity is increasing in most countries, including Norway, and the optimal diet for reducing weight is under discussion. The present study in overweight and moderate obese i...
Glucose intolerance and dyslipidaemia are independent risk factors for endothelium dysfunction and CVD. The aim of the present study was to analyse the preventive effect of n-3 PUFA (EPA and DHA) on l...
Long-chain n-3 polyunsaturated fatty acids (LC n-3 PUFA) exert beneficial effects on health and they could help to prevent development of obesity and associated metabolic disorders. In our previous st...
Summary The hypothesis tested was that the feeding of n-6 polyunsaturated fatty acids (PUFA) results in more whole-body fatty acid oxidation than the feeding of saturated fatty acids (SFA). It was rea...
Increasing dietary n-3 PUFA decreases the risk of CHD. Since n-6 PUFA compete with n-3 PUFA for common metabolic enzymes, the n-6:n-3 ratio intake rather than the n-3 PU...
AbstractObjective: The induction of obesity, dyslipidemia, and insulin resistance by high-fat diet in rodents can be prevented by n-3 long-chain polyunsaturated fatty acids (LC-PUFA). We tested a hypo...
