A feeding trial was conducted in adult albino rats to study the influence on lipid fractions of serum and various body tissues by feeding diets containing sarsoon oil, canola oil and hydrogenated fat.
The results revealed that serum cholesterol decreased in sarsoon (-14.3%) and canola oil (-9.9%) while increased in hydrogenated fat (26.1%) fed rats. Similarly serum triglycerides decreased in sarsoon (-22.6%) and canola oil (-21.3%) while increased in hydrogenated fat fed rats (24.3%). Serum HDL increased in sarsoon oil (19.30%), canola oil (35.00%) and hydrogenated fat (81.20%) fed rats while serum LDL decreased in sarsoon (-20.00%) and canola oil (-16.00%) and increased in hydrogenated fat (15.70%) fed arts. Liver cholesterol showed higher (P<0.05) values in sarsoon oil (426.33±25.03 mg/100g) fed rats. Rapeseed oils showed lower (P<0.01) carcass triglycerides than hydrogenated fat fed rats. Body weight of rats decreased in sarsoon while increased in canola and hydrogenated fat fed rats.
Study on 50 pregnant women in Allied Hospital, Faisalabad revealed non significant difference in T4 and TSH levels between women of 2nd and 3rd trimester. Similarly, T4 and TSH levels showed no statistical difference between those women used multivitamins and iodine supplements and those did not used. The correlation between T4 and TSH was higher and negative in women having normal body weight to their height and those did not used multivitamins tablets. However, a positive correlation between T4 and TSH was observed in women those used iodine and negative in women those did not used iodine.
