Eggs could help to Reduce risk for type 2 diabetes, says a new study.
Eggs are a major source of high cholesterol, which has been associated with high blood sugar and an increased risk of type 2 diabetes. However, eggs could help to decrease risk for type 2 diabetes, says a new study.
According to a recent study published in the American Journal of Clinical Nutrition, diets high in cholesterol are linked to a higher incidence of diabetes, but higher egg intake was associated with a lower risk of type 2 diabetes in middle-aged and older men.
This study investigated the relationship between egg consumption and risk of incident type 2 diabetes of middle-aged men in eastern Finland.
Eggs full of beneficial nutrients
The current study included 2,332 men between the ages of 42 and 60, with a follow-up period of 19.3 years.
The link between egg consumption and lowered diabetes risk remained intact even after researchers accounted for other factors like body mass index, physical activity levels, smoking and diet.
“In addition to cholesterol, eggs contain many beneficial nutrients that can have an effect on, for example, glucose metabolism and low-grade inflammation, and thus lower the risk of type 2 diabetes” a news release on the study stated.
