Название: Metabolic Syndrome Pathophysiology: The Role of Essential Fatty Acids
Автор: Das U.
Metabolic Syndrome Pathophysiology: The Role of Essential Fatty Acids provides current research exploring the links among insulin, insulin receptors, polyunsaturated fatty acids, brain growth and disease. Specific interactions of essential fatty acids and polyunsaturated fatty acids in brain development and several disease groups are described. The role of inflammation in disease and how fatty acids regulate low-systemic inflammation are examined and explained. Metabolic and neurologic dynamics are presented to provide a linkage between the presence of omega-3 and omega-6 and protection against diseases and conditions such as diabetes mellitus, obesity, autoimmune diseases and hypertension.Content: Chapter 1 Introduction (pages 1–3): Chapter 2 History, Definition, and Diagnosis of the Metabolic Syndrome (pages 4–12): Chapter 3 Insulin Resistance in the Metabolic Syndrome (pages 13–21): Chapter 4 Is It Necessary to Redefine the Metabolic Syndrome?
