Stratification of data by sex (females, n = 349; males, n = 271) indicated that these associations were sex-specific. Females displayed an inverse association between the omega-3 index and BMI (r = −0.146, p < 0.01) and WC (r = −0.125, p < 0.05). In contrast, no significant association between the omega-3 index and anthropometric measures was detected in males. After correcting for the potentially confounding effects of age, household income, fish oil supplement status, daily dietary energy intake and total physical activity times, the omega-3 index was inversely associated with BMI and WC in females but not males. Conclusions: Omega-3 status was associated with weight status, particularly in older women but not in men. These results suggest the need for sex-based intervention trials to examine the role of dietary intake and/or supplementation of LCn-3PUFA in weight management of older adults.]]> Wed 11 Apr 2018 17:17:49 AEST ]]> Cooking for one or two: applying participatory action research to improve community‐dwelling older adults’ health and well‐being (letter) https://ogma.newcastle.edu.au/vital/access/ /manager/Repository/uon:34736 Thu 28 Nov 2019 12:29:48 AEDT ]]>
