Abstract

I read with great interest the excellent article by Oldewage-Theron and Egal.


Their key finding was that despite eating a diet of 71% carbohydrate to 20% fat to 9% protein, that approaches the macronutrient proportions advocated as healthy by South African dietary experts, 34% of women in a peri-urban Vaal region had dyslipidaemia. Eighty-two per cent of the women with dyslipidaemia were obese, whereas 53% of the women without dyslipaemia were also overweight. More than 35% from both groups were hypertensive. The rates for diabetes were not reported.
