Fatty acid composition of erythrocyte phospholipids is related to insulin levels, secretion and resistance in obese type 2 diabetics on Metformin.

Abstract

BACKGROUND Relationships between fatty acids in erythrocyte phospholipids and insulin parameters have been described in healthy and overweight individuals, but not in obese diabetics. We assessed whether erythrocyte phospholipid fatty acids are related to insulin parameters in obese type 2 diabetics on Metformin. METHODS In 23 diabetics, the fractions of… (More)
