Cardiovascular disease is the leading cause of death in the United States with high blood cholesterol adding to that risk.
Since eggs are a rich source of dietary cholesterol some guidelines recommend people with type two diabetes limit their consumption of eggs and cholesterol.
But one recent study shows that might not be necessary and a high egg diet (12 or more eggs a week) compared with a low egg diet (2 or less per week) did not have adverse effects on cardio-metabolic risk factors in adults with type 2 diabetes.
The study, published in the American Journal of Clinical Nutrition, followed 128 patients with prediabetes or type 2 diabetes.
