Coronary heart diseases (CHD) are the main cause of mortality in hemodialysis patients. Lipid profile abnormality in hemodialysis patients including hypertriglyceridemia , normal total cholesterol, modest decline in HDL rise in LDL are effected by omega 3 speculative. The purpose of this study was to investigate the effects of omega 3 fatty acid on lipid profile in hemodialysis patients. this clinical trial was performed on 16 hemodialysis patients with hypertriglyceridemia. They were asked to consume 2 gr pearl omega 3 each day for 3 months. Lipid profile was obtained by enzymatic method before and after treatment with omega 3 and the data were analysed. Consumtion of omega 3 for 3 months lowered the serum triglyceride (p<0.05). HDL increased but there was no change in total cholesterol and LDL. Consumtion of omega 3 lowered the risk of CHD in hemodialysis patients by reducing the serum triglyceride.
