Even when we evaluated serum manganese with respect to lipid status, dyslipidemia-manganese relationship has been studied more in the other direction; for instance, low manganese intake has been associated to a better lipid profile in healthy adults (38) while workers exposed to manganese in ferromanganese industry had increased serum triglycerides (39); studies in animals have reported that manganese supplementation induces hypercholesterolemia and hypertriglyceridemia (6, 10).
