Effect of Different Antilipidemic Agents and Diets on Mortality
Not that it should be a surprise that omega-3 fatty acids outperformed statins, but it’s nice to see it in black and white anyway. Surprisingly, the dietary interventions did not show a very strong effect. This may be more of a factor of the type of diet used. The AHA step 1 diet is not all that great and I would never recommend this type of diet to a patient wanting to lower their lipid levels.
