Adults with type 2 diabetes who consumed a diet high in eggs did not experience adverse effects on cardiometabolic risks factors when compared with those who consumed few eggs, according to a study published in the American Journal of Clinical Nutrition.
“A lot of the research showing that a high egg consumption (six or more eggs per week) is detrimental to a person’s health was conducted at a time when we were told to avoid eggs,” Nicholas R. Fuller, PhD, research program leader for the Boden Institute of the Charles Perkins Centre at the University of Sydney, told Endocrine Today. “People eating a high egg diet during that time were also likely to have other poor eating habits, such as one high in saturated fat and low in whole-grain carbohydrates. These studies did not control for such confounding factors.”
