American Heart Ass’n CAVES on Low-Carb Diet! (KETO protects Heart)

Which diet protects from Heart Attack? In years past the American Heart Association glorified Sugary Cereals with their checkmark of approval. They stopped doing that and in their latest Scientific Statement they now list Low-Carb and Very-Low-Carb as viable options to improve heart health and protect from a heart attack. Wonder why there hasn't been a press conference yet??

I detta långa "Statement" från AHA finns lågkolhydratkost instoppad och inlindad i avsnittet Nutrition. Man kan inte precis säga att de rekommenderar Lchf och Keto:

"For adults with T2D, a tailored nutrition plan is a key component for cardiovascular risk reduction, and a heart-healthy dietary pattern is recommended to improve glycemic control, achieve weight loss when needed, and improve other atherosclerotic CVD (ASCVD) risk factors. The ADA recommendations support various healthy dietary approaches to achieve glycemic control and weight management,20,23 although the effects of dietary interventions on CVD outcomes in individuals with T2D has not been widely studied. The Mediterranean, Paleolithic, low-carbohydrate, high-protein, vegetarian, and nut-enriched diets have demonstrated benefits on glycemic control and weight loss in T2D, with the Mediterranean diet producing the greatest improvements in glycemic control and a 29% CVD reduction over 4.8 years.55–60 Very low–energy diets can lower A1c, BMI, cholesterol, and BP.61,62 Very low–carbohydrate versus moderate carbohydrate diets yield a greater decrease in A1c, more weight loss and use of fewer diabetes medications in individuals with diabetes.63–65 For those who are unable to adhere to a calorie-restricted diet, a low-carbohydrate diet reduces A1c and triglycerides.63–65 Very low–carbohydrate diets were effective in reducing A1c over shorter time periods (<6 months) with less differences in interventions ≥12 months.65a–65d For individuals using very low–carbohydrate dietary approaches, it is important for health care professionals to maintain medical oversight and adjust diabetes medications to prevent hypoglycemia.20 Overall, weight loss of 5% to 10% is associated with A1c reductions of 0.6% to 1.0% and reduced diabetes medications.66 Thus, the ADA recommends an individualized nutrition plan focusing on total calorie and metabolic goals, using a medical nutrition program as needed to achieve goals."
