Egg Consumption Could Cause Heart Disease in People With Diabetes


By: Daniel Trecroci

People with diabetes might have an increased risk of developing coronary heart disease (CHD) or stroke if they eat one or more eggs per day.

For the study, 37,851 men and 80,082 women were observed as part of the Health Professionals follow-up study (1986 to 1994) and the Nurses’ Health Study (1980 to 1994).

According to the April 21 issue of The Journal of the American Medical Association, participants eating more than one egg per day were unlikely to develop CHD or stroke, except in the subgroup of people with diabetes. Researchers suggest that the apparent increased risk of CHD and stroke associated with higher egg consumption among participants with diabetes warrants further research.
