The purpose of this study was to Investigate the response of fasting serum glucose and basal insulin to dietary omega-3 fatty fish in normal subjects. Nineteen healthy female volunteer subjects were divided into two groups, depending on fish preference test. Low ap3 fatty acid group for 7 days received a experimental Inlet containing mackeral fish 100g. Calorie intake was 1780 kcal /day. The average 4ally u-3 fatty acid consumption from fish was 3.87g /day (1.03g EPA, 2.849 DHA) . High n-3 fatty acid group was given 7.74g maine u-3 fatty acid (200g mackeral fish) consisting of 2.06g EP45.68g DHA. Calorie intake was 1815 local /day Fasting blond serum glucose, insulin levels were measured at baseline, 7days after experimental diet. In the beginning the levels of fasting serum glucose, basal insulin were not different between both groups. There were no significant changes in fasting serum glucose, insulin levels by experimental diets. These data indicate that marine ar3 fatty acid consumption have no deleterious effect on glycemic control in normal subjects.
