• Intervention
    Under isocaloric conditions, what is the impact of changing the quality and composition of macronutrient (carbohydrates, proteins and dietary fat) on LDL-cholesterol levels in normolipidimic and hyperlipidemic individuals?
    • Conclusion

      Replacing saturated fat intake with either unsaturated fat or carbohydrates, principally contributed by fruits, vegetables and grains, is effective in reducing LDL-cholesterol. A diet rich in monounsaturated fat may be effective in also reducing serum triglycerides.

    • Grade: I
      • Grade I means there is Good/Strong evidence supporting the statement;
      • Grade II is Fair;
      • Grade III is Limited/Weak;
      • Grade IV is Expert Opinion Only;
      • Grade V is Not Assignable.
      • High (A) means we are very confident that the true effect lies close to that of the estimate of the effect;
      • Moderate (B) means we are moderately confident in the effect estimate;
      • Low (C) means our confidence in the effect estimate is limited;
      • Very Low (D) means we have very little confidence in the effect estimate.
      • Ungraded means a grade is not assignable.
