Yes, it's safe to eat eggs, even if you're a diabetic image

Just in case you were in any doubt, eating eggs doesn't increase your risk of heart disease, even if you're eating two every morning for breakfast, and even if you're already a diabetic, a new study has concluded.

Although eggs have high levels of cholesterol, they don't raise our cholesterol levels, and they don't increase our weight, either.

Researchers from the University of Sydney said they wanted to clarify advice we get about a healthy diet, and especially about eating eggs; one study had even likened eggs to cigarettes, so damaging were they to our health.

But the Australian researchers found that eggs weren't escalating the risk of cardiovascular disease, even among diabetics who are already at higher risk.

In fact, they are a good source of protein and micronutrients that help maintain eye and heart health, healthy blood vessels, and regulate our fat and carbohydrate intake. The researchers monitored the heart health and weight of 128 people who had been diagnosed as having early signs of diabetes. Half the group ate more than 12 eggs a week, and the rest ate fewer than two eggs, for a year, and during that time both groups were put on a weight-loss programme.

But the weight loss was similar in both groups, and markers for cardiovascular disease were also the same.

Even if you have diabetes, you don't have to "hold back from eating eggs," said Nick Fuller, the lead researcher.
