Abstract
Background: Obesity is a major public health problem which is associated with a number of comorbidities. The worldwide prevalence of obesity is increasing, especially in the Asia Pacific region. Omega-3 fatty acids are polyunsaturated fatty acids of plant and marine origin and have been found to have beneficial effects on several diseases. Aim: This study compares the plasma levels of n-3 fatty acids in individuals with different categories of body mass index (BMI) and waist circumference (WC). Study design: Cross-sectional clinical study. Methods: A total of 151 individuals, were randomly recruited from patients attending the nutrition clinics. Participants were divided into three groups according to BMI (healthy-weight, overweight, and obese) and WC categories (not at risk, increased risk, and substantially increased risk). Blood samples were collected from all participants and plasma levels of n-3 fatty acids were analyzed by gas chromatography (GC). The protocol was approved by the Ethics Committee. Results: Healthy-weight individuals had significantly higher levels of alpha-linolenic acid (ALA), eicosapentaenoic acid (EPA), and docosahexaenoic acid (DHA) in comparison to overweight and obese subjects. Also, plasma n-3 polyunsaturated fatty acids were decreasing with increasing WC. ALA, EPA, and DHA were inversely correlated with BMI (P<0.001, P=0.007, P<0.001, respectively) and waist circumference (P=0.001, P=0.001, P<0.001, respectively). Moreover, the differences in ALA and DHA were not statistically significant between groups, but women had significantly higher levels of EPA compared with men (P=0.01). Conclusion: Plasma n-3 PUFAs were inversely associated with anthropometric measures of obesity. Further studies are needed to clarify the possible mechanism(s) that links plasma omega-3 fatty acids with overall and abdominal obesity.
