The relationship between omega 6 fatty acids and the risk of Type 2 diabetes remains unclear. Numerous investigations observed cardiovascular effects of omega 6 fatty acids, but very few on outcomes such as Type 2 diabetes. According to American heart association guidelines, 5 to 10% of energy is obtained from linoleic acid, but some others recommend limited consumption of linoleic acid. As they revealed, this could have harmful effects. Omega 6 fat can be found in nuts, seeds, and edible oils such as soybean and sunflower oil.
