Impact of high dose n-3 polyunsaturated fatty acid treatment on measures of microvascular function and vibration perception in non-alcoholic fatty liver disease: results from the randomised WELCOME trial

Abstract

The effect of n-3 fatty acid treatment on vibration perception thresholds (VPTs) and cutaneous microvascular reactivity is not known. We tested whether: (1) a 15–18 month treatment with high dose (4 g/day) docosahexaenoic (DHA) plus eicosapentaenoic (EPA) acid improved VPT and microvascular reactivity in patients with non-alcoholic fatty liver disease; and… (More)
