INTRODUCTION Insulin resistance (IR), a risk factor for cardiovascular disease and all-cause mortality, is prevalent among maintenance hemodialysis patients. Effects of omega-3 fatty acids on IR in hemodialysis patients have not been well understood. This study aimed to determine the effects of omega-3 fatty acids on IR and serum lipids of hemodialysis patients. MATERIALS AND METHODS Fifty-four adult patients on hemodialysis were randomly assigned to receive either 1800 mg of omega-3 fatty… CONTINUE READING
