It is unanimously agreed that the omega 3 fatty acids have many health benefits and specifically, protective effects against cardiovascular and neurodegenerative diseases. The objective of this work was to estimate the spontaneous intake of alphalinolenic, docosahexaenoique (DHA), eicosapentaenoique (EPA) and linoleic acids. This observational study was conducted among 42 type 2 diabetics (21 men and 21 women) aged from 30 to 75 years. To estimate spontaneous intakes of polyinsaturated fatty acids, we used the seven days recording method. Our results showed the average daily intake of ALA was 0.99 ± 0.40 g/d or 0.42 ± 0.13 % of total energy intake. None of our patients had an adequate intake of ALA. Average daily intakes of DHA and EPA, were respectively 90.0 ± 85 mg/d and 83.5 ± 80 mg/d. As for the contribution of food to intake of EPA and DHA, fish and seafood accounted for the largest share (57%) of these fatty acids. Our results justify to strengthen nutritional education of diabetic subjects to increase the consumption of foods rich in omega 3 fatty acids and to provide an adequate report LA/ALA to multiple benefits against protection of cardiovascular diseases. © 2014 H.
