Abstract

Sixty male patients in the age group of 30-50 years belonging to upper middle class, who were at risk of developing coronary heart disease were selected. Information regarding background, risk factors, dietary antioxidant intake, nutrition knowledge was recorded. Blood samples were drawn to analyse the lipid profile. Nutrition education for a period of 4 months was imparted with special emphasis on intake of dietary antioxidants. Results indicated positive impact of nutrition education on intake of dietary antioxidants but it was still lower than standards set by heart health organisation. Improvement in post nutrition knowledge scores was observed and dietary antioxidants resulted in significant impact in lowering blood lipid profile of at risk heart patients.
