  1. Values are mean ± SD or median (IQR) and changes denote measure(follow-up) – measure(baseline). Fatty acids are presented as relative percentage of fatty acids analysed. Saturated, sum of 14:0, 15:0, 16:0, 17:0 and 18:0; Monounsaturated, sum of 16:1 and 18:1 Polyunsaturated w6, sum of 18:2, 18:3, 20:3, 20:4 and 22:4 (all w6); and Polyunsaturated w3, sum of 18:3, 20:5, 22:5 and 22:6 (all w3).
