Fatty acids

Free fatty acids (FFAs), also called nonesterified fatty acids (NEFA), account for 2% to 5% of all serum fatty acids circulating in blood plasma. Free fatty acids are protein-bound to albumin. Most of the free fatty acids are derived from either dietary sources or are mobilized from adipose tissue. Plasma free fatty acids are elevated in many obesity-related disorders and may contribute to insulin resistance in peripheral tissues. Knowledge of the individual level of FFAs in blood plasma can be helpful in the diagnosis and management of certain diseases and disorders of metabolism such as uncontrolled diabetes mellitus, hyperlipoproteinemia and secondary hyperlipoproteinemia and conditions such as sepsis and tumors producing lipoactive hormones.
