Abstract

Reducing high plasma triglyceride (TG) levels is an important step in the treatment and prevention of coronary artery disease. The rise in plasma TGs seen after subjects consume low-fat, high-carbohydrate diets for a period of time may be due to the simple form of carbohydrate provided and/or prevention of weight loss in these studies. Ad libi-tum low-fat, high-carbohydrate intake often results in weight loss and decreases in plasma TGs. Replacing dietary carbohydrate with monounsaturated fat lowers serum TG levels and maintains serum high-density lipoprotein levels but fails to result in weight loss. Low fat, high complex carbohydrate intake reduces incidence rates of coronary artery disease. On the basis of the evidence, a low-fat, high-complex carbohydrate diet combined with limited alcohol and sugar intake is recommended for the treatment of hypertriglyceridemia.
