Summary
Dietary modification is the first line treatment in cardiovascular disease. The dietary recommendations focus on the consumption of total fat, saturated fatty acids and cholesterol, additionally the adequate intake of some vitamins and minerals is also important.
The purpose of this study was to evaluate vitamins and minerals intake in hyperlipidemic outpatients. The studied group comprised 103 women, with BMI 28.4 ± 6.77 men with BMI 29 ± 4.8, aged 20–60 years. Dietary assessment was based on 3-d food records.
The energy intake in women was 1824.1 ± 576 kcal/d, in men 2246.6 ± 679 kcal/d. The average intake above the RDA was for vitamin A (147.5 ± 94% of the RDA in women, 143.2 ± 138% in men) vitamin E (119.8 ± 58.7%, 130.2 ± 76%), very close for vitamin B6 in women (98.9 ± 33.1%) and in men additionally for iron (134.8 ± 56%), niacin (110 ± 38%) and vitamin B6 (101.7 ± 36.2%). The lowest percentage of the RDA was for calcium (62.2 ± 38%, 69.8 ± 40.7%) and magnesium (76.2 ± 25%, 78.6 ± 24.6%) in women as well as in men and for vitamin B1 in women (76.2 ± 28%) and for vitamin B2 in men (78.4 ± 36.6%). The percentage of the RDA for vitamin C was 85.1 ± 49% in women and 85.2 ± 61.8% in men.
In this studied group the low intake of certain vitamins and minerals was found. The nutritional education is required, which is aimed not only at lower intake of fat, saturated fatty acids and cholesterol, but also at adequate consumption of vitamins and minerals.
