Phase angle and n-3 polyunsaturated fatty acids in sickle cell disease.

Abstract

Phase angle, an impedance parameter used for nutritional assessment, is reflective of the capacitance properties of cell membranes. We have shown a significant correlation between the proportions of specific n-3 polyunsaturated fatty acids in the serum phospholipids of Nigerian children with sickle cell disease and their phase angles determined by bioelectrical impedance analysis.
