Washington: Teenagers who consume high sugar foods in their diets may be at an increased risk of heart disease later in life, says a new study.The study showed that teens who consume elevated amounts of added sugars in drinks and foods are more likely to have poor cholesterol and triglyceride profiles, making them susceptible to heart diseases later.And overweight or obese teens with the highest levels of added sugar intake had increased signs of insulin resistance.
Two days of dietary data were used among a subsample of 646 adolescents and the key findings remained consistent:Those with higher intake of added sugar had higher LDL levels of 94.3 mg/dL compared to 86.7 in those with the lowest levels, a 9 percent difference.Triglyceride levels in those with the highest consumption were 79 mg/dL compared to 71.7 mg/dL among the lowest, a 10 percent difference.The study is published in the Jan. 10 online issue of the journal Circulation.
