Association between erythrocyte membrane fatty acids and biomarkers of dyslipidemia in the EPIC-Potsdam study

Abstract

Background/objective:Blood proportions of fatty acids (FAs) and FA-ratios reflecting desaturase activity are associated with the risk of chronic diseases like type 2 diabetes mellitus or cardiovascular diseases. Biomarkers of dyslipidemia are considered as potential mediators of this association. We evaluated associations of erythrocyte membrane proportions… (More)
