Read through the following clinical vignettes and take time to review each woman’s cardiovascular risk factor profile. Then, refer to the questions at the end of the case study to analyze each female patient’s current health status. Patient S is a white woman, 43 years of age, and mother of three small children. She has a long-standing history of significant obesity with little success in dieting over the years. At 5’3″, she is obese, weighing pounds.
Glycemic response and health-a systematic review and meta-analysis: relations between dietary glycemic properties and health. Blesso C. Dairy a CVD Risk Factors. Low unpublished case-control data from 3 large international studies.
Major scholars in the field, based on a 3-day consensus, created an in-depth review of current knowledge on the role of diet in CVD, the changing global food system and global dietary patterns, and potential policy solutions. There are large gaps in knowledge about the association of macronutrients to CVD in low- and middle-income countries LMIC, particularly linked with dietary patterns are reviewed. Our understanding of foods and macronutrients in relationship to CVD is broadly clear; however major gaps exist both in dietary pattern research and ways to change diets and food systems. There is much controversy surrounding the optimal diet for cardiovascular CV health. Relatively sparse data on diet and CVD exist from these countries though new data sources are rapidly emerging 1, 2. Non-communicable diseases NCDs are forecasted to increase substantially in LMIC because of lifestyle transitions associated with increasing urbanization, economic development and globalization. The Global Burden of Disease study cites diet as a major factor behind the rise in hypertension, diabetes, obesity, and other CVD components 3. There are an estimated over million obese 4, 5 and close to 2 billion overweight or obese individuals worldwide 6. Furthermore, unhealthy dietary patterns have negative environmental impacts, notably on climate change.
