An article published in March of this Biblical Diabetes Solution Review year in the American Journal of Clinical Nutrition reports the results of a study performed at Ruhr University in Bochum, Germany. Two types of omega-3 fatty acids, eicosapentaenoic acid (EPA) and docosahexaenoic acid (DHA), are thought to protect arteries from damage. Thirty-four volunteers with type 2 diabetes were given either a solution containing EPA and DHA or a placebo for 6 weeks. The ability of the arteries to expand when needed was then measured fasting and after a high fat meal. When the volunteers fasted, the arteries were the same in both groups. After meals, the ability of the brachial artery, an artery in the arm, to expand decreased 38% after 4 hours in the placebo group. The arteries lost their ability to expand by only 13% four hours after the meal in the omega-3 group. The authors concluded that DHA and EPA protected the arteries from the damaging effects of the high fat meal.
