Nutrition and Cardiovascular Health

Nutrition plays a vital role in the heart diseases and obesity. The burden of cardiovascular diseases is expected to rise due to the ageing population and the increasing prevalence of risk factors such as obesity. There is a relationship between cardiovascular disease risk and a variety of nutrients, foods and dietary patterns. Saturated fats and cholesterol in the diet increase levels of cholesterol in the blood, particularly low-density lipoprotein (LDL) cholesterol which is also known as bad cholesterol. This session deals with the advanced nutrition assessments and dietary patterns for patients suffering with cardiovascular diseases.
