Non-esterified fatty acid metabolism and postprandial lipaemia.

Abstract:

Non-esterified fatty acids (NEFA, or free fatty acids) are an important metabolic fuel. Both the concentration of NEFA and their flux through the circulation vary widely from hour to hour, reflecting nutritional state and physical activity. Inappropriately elevated plasma NEFA concentrations may have a number of adverse effects on both carbohydrate and lipid metabolism. These adverse effects are likely to be most marked in the postprandial period, when NEFA release from adipose tissue is usua...
