Dietary fat modulation of lipidomic biomarkers for cardiovascular disease and type 2 diabetes

The consortium partners from DIfE and the University of Reading investigated the molecular relationships of diet, lipid biomarkers and the development of metabolic diseases. The researchers used lipidomics, a modern analytical method, to identify those lipids that are statistically associated with cardiovascular diseases and type 2 diabetes. In addition, the scientists found that a diet with an increased proportion of unsaturated fatty acids leads to a reduction in risk-associated lipids and an increase in low-risk lipids.
