DLM-SF: All-Cause Mortality (2021)
In adults with or without cardiovascular disease, what is the association between the amount of saturated fat intake and all-cause mortality?
In adults with and without existing cardiovascular disease, moderate quality evidence found little to no effect of reducing saturated fat intake on all-cause mortality.
Grade: Moderate (B)
- 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.
