In addition to decreased insulin sensitivity, diabetes is a pathological condition associated with increased inflammation. The ω-3 fatty acids have been proposed as anti-inflammatory agents. Thus, the major goal of this study was to analyze the effects of fatty acid supplementation on both insulin sensitivity and inflammatory status in an animal model of… CONTINUE READING
