This public lecture was delivered by Frank Arsenyadis, Research Dietitian at the Leicester Diabetes Centre – University of Leicester, in June 2022. The talk discussed the use of Omega-3s for the management or prevention of cardiometabolic disease.
Cardiometabolic disease is a term used to describe largely preventable lifestyle-related conditions like type 2 diabetes, cardiovascular disease and non-alcoholic fatty liver.
Omega-3s are mainly found in oily fish, nuts and seeds, and have long been linked to good heart health. Roughly a third of us in the UK consume fish oil supplements, for various reasons, but do we really know what their effects are, what amount we should be taking and for how long?
This talk gives us the opportunity to delve into the evidence surrounding use of Omega-3s (in supplement or diet form) for the management or prevention of cardiometabolic disease.
The answers are in no way straightforward. Join Frank in traversing this proverbial minefield and gain an awareness of the challenges of nutrition research as we attempt to piece together how Omega-3s contribute to our health.
