  1. 1. Fatty Acid Desaturase Activities in Metabolic Syndrome and Cardiovascular Disease Special Reference to Stearoyl-CoA-Desaturase and Biomarkers of Dietary Fat

    University dissertation from Uppsala : Acta Universitatis Upsaliensis

    Author : Eva Warensjö; Uppsala universitet.; [2007]
    Keywords : Nutrition; Fatty acids; Dietary fat; Biomarker; Metabolic Syndrome; Mortality; Obesity; Insulin Sensitivity; Epidemiology; Estimated desaturase activities; Stearoyl-CoA-desaturase; delta-6-desaturase; delta-5-desaturase; Single Nucleotide Polymorphism; Dietary Intervention; Rapeseed oil; Saturated fat; SCD1; Näringslära;

    Abstract : The development of the metabolic syndrome (MetS) and cardiovascular diseases have been suggested to be influenced more by the quality than the amount of dietary fat. The FA composition of serum lipids may be used as biomarkers of dietary fat quality. READ MORE

    Abstract : Dietary fat quality influences the risk of type 2 diabetes and cardiovascular disease. A low-grade inflammation is suggested to contribute to the disease development, often accompanied by obesity. Whereas n-3 polyunsaturated fatty acids (PUFA) have been considered anti-inflammatory, n-6 PUFA have been proposed to act pro-inflammatory. READ MORE

  3. 3. Influences on schoolchildren's dietary selection : focus on fat and fibre at breakfast

    University dissertation from Göteborg : University of Gothenburg

    Author : Christina Berg; Göteborgs universitet.; Gothenburg University.; [2002]
    Keywords : LANTBRUKSVETENSKAPER; AGRICULTURAL SCIENCES; Food habits; Food choice; Health behaviour; Dietary surveys; Attitude; Knowledge; Dietary fibre; Dietary fats; Children; Adolescents; Family;

    Abstract : One important aim of the Swedish Action Programme for Nutrition is to increase the consumption of dietary fibre and decrease fat intake. The currently available extensive range of fat-reduced and fibre-enriched foods makes these dietary practices possible, but also makes the selection of a health promoting diet more complex.

  4. 4. Dietary Fatty Acids, Body Composition and Ectopic Fat Results from Overfeeding Studies in Humans

    University dissertation from Uppsala : Acta Universitatis Upsaliensis

    Author : Fredrik Rosqvist; Uppsala universitet.; [2016]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Linoleic acid; Palmitic acid; SFA; PUFA; Fatty acids; Body composition; Liver fat; Ectopic fat; Adipose tissue; Medicinsk vetenskap; Medical Science;

    Abstract : The aim of this thesis was to investigate the effects of dietary fatty acids on body composition and ectopic fat in humans, with emphasis on the role of the omega-6 polyunsaturated fatty acid (PUFA) linoleic acid (18:2n-6) and the saturated fatty acid (SFA) palmitic acid (16:0). The overall hypothesis was that linoleic acid would be beneficial compared with palmitic acid during overfeeding, as previously indicated in animals. READ MORE

  5. 5. Separation of Water and Fat Signal in Magnetic Resonance Imaging Advances in Methods Based on Chemical Shift

    University dissertation from Uppsala : Acta Universitatis Upsaliensis

    Author : Johan Berglund; Uppsala universitet.; [2011]
    Keywords : LANTBRUKSVETENSKAPER; AGRICULTURAL SCIENCES; Magnetic resonance imaging; digital image reconstruction; chemical shift imaging; water and fat separation; Dixon method; fat suppression; quantitative MRI; whole-body MRI; fatty acid composition; fat unsaturation; triglycerides; adipose tissue; liver fat; T2* mapping; VETERINARY MEDICINE Radiology; VETERINÄRMEDICIN Radiologi; Radiology; Radiologi;

    Abstract : Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) is one of the most important diagnostic tools of modern healthcare. The signal in medical MRI predominantly originates from water and fat molecules. READ MORE
