This showed new results from [email protected] people who consume dairy products are usually less likely to suffer from diabetes and hypertension and therefore develop related diseases. Designed and popularized by the Center for Biomedical Research in the Diabetes and Related Metabolic Diseases Network (CIBERDEM), the project has been reported with the participation of researchers and health centers across Spain.
The research phase was conducted between 2008-2010 and was attended by more than 5,000 volunteers from all over Spain aged over 18. The work was co-ordinated by Gemma Roho Martinez, CIBERDEM Group Leader and Researcher at Malaga Regional Hospital and Malaga Institute of Biomedical Research (IBIMA). This, moreover, determined the incidence of diabetes in Spain with subjects included in the initial study after eight years of follow-up.
The Director of the Department of Clinical Management of Endocrinology and Nutrition of Malaga Regional Hospital, Gabriel Olveira, states that the primary objective of this study is to establish the prevalence of diabetes in Spain, "but also allows the study of the prevalence of other risk as obesity, hypertension, sedentary lifestyle or diet".
"As a result of hypertension – 39.9% – and obesity – 26.6% – in Spain, we think of the need to implement strategies to reduce their presence through their predisposition to other pathologies related to diseases. cardiovascular disease, heart failure and cardiovascular death, "explains Rojo, who points out that to date consumption of dairy products and the presence of these diseases.
Consumption of dairy products in Spain
This study allowed us not only to emphasize the relationship between them consumption of dairy products and the best metabolic profile in the adult Spanish population, but also show that women consume more milk, cheese or yoghurt than men while taking sweeter dairy products like shakes or ice cream. "So, in the northern part of Spain, more dairy products are consumed and less in the eastern part of the country," says the coordinator.
The research phase was conducted between 2008-2010 and was attended by more than 5,000 volunteers from all over Spain aged over 18.
"The results show the beneficial impact of the consumption of dairy products on the presence of hypertension and obesity that can contribute to better overall metabolic status and lower cardiovascular risk, "says the expert." Dairy products are part of healthy eating, provide high biological value proteins, vitamin B12 and the most important source of calcium in the diet: yogurt and many varieties of cheese have low levels of lactose, which is why they would be shown in people who are lactose intolerant.
"Although fat contained in dairy products is predominantly saturatedhis role in terms of chronic diseases, including cardiovascular disease, diabetes, hypertension and obesity, is being discussed at the moment, "explains Gabriel Olveira. In a healthy population, the intake of 2-4 portions of dairy products enters a healthy model. foods, even if they are not defatted, although it is preferable to be unsweetened. For overweight, obese or lipid-enhancing people, it would be advisable to take them in a semi-skimmed or skimmed version, "he adds.
