DLM: Physical Activity (2001)
The ADA 2001 Hyperlipidemia MNT Evidence-based guide for practice was originally published in a compact disk (CD) format. This 2001 project was published to the online Evidence Analysis Library for the benefit of ADA members, even though it does not follow the current online format and may be missing some of the components (all of the components of current evidence analysis include: question, conclusion, grade, search plan and results, evidence summary, overview table, worksheets, and quality check lists.)
Physical Activity (Hyperlipidemia 2001)
Observational studies (an epidemiologic study that does not involve any intervention, experimental or otherwise; a study in which nature is allowed to take its course, with changes in one characteristic being studied in relation to changes in other characteristics) show a direct relationship between physical activity and mortality from coronary heart disease (CHD); these studies show that physical inactivity is an independent risk factor for the development of CHD. Exercise may enhance the beneficial effect of other behavioral interventions. Data on physical activity and long term survival from CHD are limited.
