Familial hypercholesterolemia is a genetic disorder that increases cholesterol levels 2 to 4 times above average.
Until now, the basic directive in patients with familial hypercholesterolemia has been to avoid eating foods with saturated fat to keep their cholesterol lower, reducing the risk of heart disease.
Such foods are meat, eggs, and cheese, but also coconut oil, as they are implicated in raising cholesterol.
However, according to the findings of a new study, people with abnormally high cholesterol levels should not only avoid saturated fat.
An international team of nutrition and heart health experts, including five cardiologists, studied the diet of familial hypercholesterolemia sufferers and found an interesting non-fat correlation.
According to study leader David Diamond, a professor at the University of South Florida, sugars rather than saturated fat are the real threat to heart health.
According to the researchers, a low-carb diet is more effective for people with an increased risk of heart disease, such as for overweight, hypertensive, and diabetic.
The new findings come in line with a recent publication by the American College of Cardiology, which provided strong evidence that foods that increase blood sugar, such as bread, potatoes, and sweets, are the ones to be avoided.
The findings of the new study were published in the scientific journal BMJ Evidence-Based Medicine.
