Purpose:

The study evaluates high fiber diet intake in patients with hyperlipidemia.


Study summary:

Dietary fiber intake has been shown to have modest effect in lowering cholesterol. However, most of these studies were done with 20g/daily fiber intake. Not much is known about high dietary fiber intake (30-40 g/day) and serum cholesterol. Also, there have been small studies that have shown modest decrease in oxidative stress by increasing dietary fiber intake. The goal of our study is to determine the efficacy /safety of high dietary fiber intake in raising HDL, lowering LDL, and lowering oxidative stress in patients with hyperlipidemia.


Criteria:

Inclusion Criteria: - All primary and secondary prevention patients aged 18 to 80 years with known or newly diagnosed isolated hypercholesteremia or combined hyperlipidemia. - Inclusion criteria include patients with HDL < 35 mg/dL for a man or < 45mg/dL for women irrespective of LDL level. Exclusion Criteria: - Any patients with unstable angina, untreated hypothyroidism, uncontrolled diabetes, other endocrine or metabolic diseases not actively treated, acute inflammatory diseases, severe gastrointestinal diseases, chronic renal insufficiency (GFR<30), end stage renal disease, liver disease or other severe diseases such as cancer, triglyceride level greater than 600 mg/dL, pregnant females, chronic use of systemic corticosteroid, or anticoagulants. - Patients who were recently started or recently had their lipid lowering medications changed within the last 4 weeks will be excluded.
