Levels of plasma free fatty acids (Palmitic, Elaidic and Oleic fatty acid) were analyzed in blood sample of all patients by gas chromatography apparatus equipped with a flame ionization detector (GC-FID).Result: results indicated that there was no significant changes were observed in plasma levels of Palmitic, Elaidic and Oleic fatty acids in overweight patients (BMI 25-30 ), but plasma levels of Elaidic acid significantly increased in obese patients (P
