Increased omega 3 intake associated with improved mood, sleep in lupus patients

Increased omega 3 intake associated with improved mood, sleep in lupus patients
Reprinted with the kind permission of Life Extension.

November 6 2017. The 2017 American College of Rheumatology/Association of Rheumatology Health Professionals Annual Meeting in San Diego was the site of a presentation of the finding of improvements in sleep quality and mood in association with higher intake of omega 3 fatty acids among patients with the autoimmune disease systemic lupus erythematosus (SLE).

Using data from the Michigan Lupus Epidemiology & Surveillance program, University of Michigan researchers evaluated the association between omega 3 and omega 6 fatty acid intake and patient-reported outcomes in 456 lupus patients. Greater omega 3 intake was associated with better sleep and less depression. An association was also observed between greater omega 6 to omega 3 ratios in the diet and increased SLE disease activity.

"Western diets are thought to contribute to an increase in people with chronic conditions including autoimmune diseases,” commented researcher Prae Charoenwoodhipong, MS, who is a graduate student in the Department of Nutrition Science at the University of Michigan School of Public Health. "Many small studies found that omega 3 supplementation was associated with an improvement in disease activity in SLE patients, but no studies have looked at omega 3 exposure through diet or its impact on patient related outcomes. Also, very few studies have looked at the impact of omega 6, an inflammatory fatty acid that is very common in U.S. diets. According to rheumatologists I've worked with, patients with SLE are always asking about what they might be able to do with supplements or their diet to help improve their health."

"Many SLE patients suffer from symptoms such as poor sleep, fatigue and depression," Prae Charoenwoodhipong added. "While current treatments have been wonderful at addressing pain, we haven't been able to offer therapies that really help with these other symptoms.”
