Serum cholesteryl ester (CE) fatty acids, serum lipids and apolipoproteins were analysed from Finnish children aged from 3 to 18 years. The study was part of a comprehensive survey of coronary heart disease risk factors and their determinants in Finnish children and by:   Fatty acid compositions of serum cholesteryl esters (CE) were analysed with gas chromatography from a total of 1, Finnish children. The study was a part of a comprehensive survey of atherosclerosis precursors among children, and included 3-, 6-, 9-, , , and year-old children and adolescents from five urban and twelve rural communities in by: Fatty-Acid Composition of Serum Cholesteryl Esters in Relation to Serum-Lipids and Apolipoproteins in 3–Year-Old Finnish Children and Adolescents. (). Genetic variants of the fatty acid desaturase gene cluster predict amounts of red blood cell docosahexaenoic and other polyunsaturated fatty acids in pregnant women: findings from the. This study aimed at characterizing the fatty acid (FA) composition of red blood cell (RBC) phospholipids in children and adolescents with primary hyperlipidemia, and to ascertain potential association with serum lipid profile and dietary factors. At this purpose, 54 probands aged 6–17 years were recruited.

In the Finnish Multicentre Study of the risk factors of coronary heart disease serum immunoreactive insulin (IRI) was measured in 3, children and adolescents aged years. OBJECTIVE We investigated the association of fasting serum glycerol and fatty acids (FAs) as predictors for worsening of hyperglycemia and incident type 2 diabetes. RESEARCH DESIGN AND METHODS Cross-sectional and longitudinal analyses of the population-based METabolic Syndrome in Men (METSIM) Study included 9, Finnish men (mean age 57 ± 7 years). For a child or adolescent (2 to 18 years of age), the following pattern of nutrient intake is recommended: 1) saturated fatty acids.   Background Vegetarian and vegan diets have become more popular among adolescents and young adults. However, few studies have investigated the nutritional status of vegans, who may be at risk of nutritional deficiencies. Objective To compare dietary intake and nutritional status of Finnish long-term vegans and non-vegetarians. Methods Dietary intake and supplement use were estimated using .

Many African diets are low in fat but are currently changing because of nutrition transition. We studied fat and fatty acid (FA) intake and the essential fatty acid (EFA) status of adolescent girls (aged 14–19 years, n ) in Zambezia Province, central Mozambique. A cross-sectional study was carried out in a city as well as in the towns and rural villages of a coastal and an inland district.   The objective of the present study was to describe the intake of dietary fatty acids among healthy year-old boys and girls and to relate the intake of specific fatty acids and the fatty acid composition of the serum cholesterol esters to serum lipid, apolipoprotein (Apo) and insulin concentrations respectively.   A new study from the University of Eastern Finland shows that high serum omega-6 polyunsaturated fatty acid concentrations are linked to a significantly reduced risk of type 2 diabetes.
