Omega-3 fatty acids are provided through dietary intake of fish and seafood. Several dietary
supplements containing omega-3 fatty acids are also commercially available. Some studies have
described beneficial effects from omega-3 fatty acids, among them are anti-inflammatory,
anti-thrombotic, anti-atherosclerotic, anti-arrhythmic, anti-hypertensive and
lipid-modulating effects. Other studies have not confirmed these findings. This study will
investigate the effects of omega-3 fatty acids on renal function and cardiovascular risk
markers in renal transplant recipients.
