To evaluate the fish oil treatment upon morphological and metabolic changes in the pancreas and adipose tissue of C57BL/6 mice fed high-fat-high-sucrose (HFHS) diet. Male C57BL/6 mice were fed HFHS chow or standard chow (SC). At 3 mo-old, HFHS mice were separated into untreated group (HFHS) or treated with fish oil (HFHS-Fo, 1.5 g/kg/day). At 4-mo-old animals were sacrificed. HFHS had increase in body mass (BM) and in total body fat, but HFHS-Fo had smaller BM and total body fat in relation to HFHS. Plasma glucose and insulin levels were not affected among the groups, but HFHS and HFHS-Fo had higher HOMA-IR ratio. HFHS and HFHS-FO had increased plasma total cholesterol and LDL-C, but HFHS-Fo increased plasma HDL-C and decreased triglycerides levels. The adipocytes size were greater in HFHS, when compared to SC and HFHS-Fo groups. HFHS-Fo had smaller pancreas mass and HFHS presented higher islet pancreatic diameter, when compared to SC group. SC group showed strong expression for insulin, glucagon and GLUT-2 in all pancreatic islets, and HFHS presented lesser expression for GLUT-2. However, HFHS-Fo presented increase of GLUT-2 expression. Fish oil treatment was able to reduce body mass gain and plasma TG, reduce fat pad adiposity as well as adipocyte and pancreatic islet hypertrophy, prevent decrease GLUT-2 in C57BL/6.
