The objective of this study was to evaluate the serum levels of ferritin and the prevalence of iron deficiency in vegan and omnivorous individuals by taking into account the presence of elements that cause an elevation of ferritin levels, such as increased homeostatic model assessment of insulin resistance (HOMA-IR), body mass index (BMI), and high...
Article
Background and aims: Vegan diet excludes all foodstuffs of animal origin and leads to cholesterol lowering and possibly reduction of cardiovascular disease risk. The aim was to investigate whether vegan diet improves the metabolic pathway of triglyceride-rich lipoproteins, consisting in lipoprotein lipolysis and removal from circulation of the res...

... In addition, in insulin resistance and increased systemic inflammation, there is an increase in ferritin levels, which acts as a marker of inflammation, and not of the body's iron reserve, as demonstrated in a previously published study [21]. The increase in circulating concentrations of this acute phase protein is a predictor of the development of metabolic syndrome and NAFLD in adults [22]. ...
