In adults with or without cardiovascular disease, what is the association between the amount of saturated fat intake and stroke?
In adults, with and without existing cardiovascular disease, very low certainty of evidence suggests an unclear effect of reducing saturated fat intake on stroke.
Grade: Very Low (D)
- 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.
