[Dietary guidance in the primary health care sector (co-funded by DIHTA)]

Record ID 31999009866
Authors' objectives:

To assess the effectiveness of dietary intervention for reducing levels of serum cholesterol.

Authors' recommendations: It may be concluded that dietary guidance for the treatment of increased serum cholesterol in the primary health sector has proved to be effective, inexpensive, free from adverse effects and well accepted by both doctors and patients. There are major financial gains to be made, money which then may be used elsewhere in the health sector. It is recommended that increased serum cholesterol is treated with dietary guidance through a one year treatment strategy before treatment with medicine is decided upon. Further, it is recommended that a treatment strategy corresponding to that used by the dietician's office in Roskilde County is implemented in other counties in Denmark.
