BACKGROUND Fatty acids have been shown to stimulate the sympathetic nervous system in rats. Power spectral analysis of heart rate variability (HRV) is a safe and useful tool with which to evaluate cardiac autonomic nervous system (ANS) activity. Whether changes in plasma fatty acid concentrations affect the sympathetic nervous system or HRV in humans is unknown. OBJECTIVE We investigated the possible changes in HRV after a significant increase in plasma fatty acid concentration. DESIGN… CONTINUE READING
