Oslo Diet Heart Study

  1. 1. Oslo Diet Heart Study Leren et al. The effect of plasma cholesterol lowering diet in male survivors of myocardial infarction. Bull N Y Acad Med. 1968 August; 44(8): 1012–1020. (does NOT contain detailed diet instrcutions) Published also as doctoral thesis in Acta Med Scand. 1966; Suppl 466; 1-9 (comprehensive version containing the detailed dietary instructions ) [Updated February 2015] Page 1
  2. 2. Important note: Detailed dietary instructions can only be found in the long and original paper version from 1966, not in the electronically available version from 1968 2
  3. 3. Pronutritionist’s background • In meta-analyses, saturated fat intake is not independently linked to coronary heart disease (CHD) incidence (Siri-Tarino et al. 2010, Skeaff & Miller J. 2009 and Mente et al. 2009) • Another meta-analysis based on the randomized outcome trials, demonstrated a lower incidence of CHD if saturated fat was replaced by polyunsaturated fat (Mozaffarian et al. 2010) • The results of Mozaffarian’s meta-analysis were heavily driven by two studies: a) Finnish Mental Hospital Study (FMHS) and b) Oslo Diet Heart Study • Oslo Diet Heart Study is often perceived as a fat modification trial but this has been questioned by Ramsden et al. 2010 • Oslo Diet Heart Study is still a landmark trial, but how does it stand the test of time? Leren et al. . Bull N Y Acad Med. 1968 August; 44(8): 1012–1020 Page 3
  4. 4. Methods (patients) • Parallel randomized trial • Secondary prevention of CHD among myocardial infarction (MI) survivors • Primary outcomes: Reinfarctions and serum total cholesterol • N=412, males, age 30-64 years • Active treatment was started 1-2 years after MI • Total cholesterol levels at baseline in both groups 7,6 mmol/L (296 mg/dl) • Subjects were free living • Length: 5 years per arm • Era: 1956 → (60 months follow up) • “Dieters” = active treatment group” Leren et al. . Bull N Y Acad Med. 1968 August; 44(8): 1012–1020 Page 4
  5. 5. Methods (schematic) Leren et al. . Bull N Y Acad Med. 1968 August; 44(8): 1012–1020 Page 5 Randomization of patients (MI survivors, n = 412) Comprehensive “cholesterol lowering diet” (“Dieters”) (see details next page) n=206 Dairy fat diet = control (normal Norwegian diet) n=206 5 yearsy. 1956→
  6. 6. Methods, diet (1/3) Cholesterol lowering diet • Soybean oil was provided for free (from “15-30 g /day as medicine” OR 0,5 L/week for cooking) • Sardines canned in cod liver oil “which proved to be a popular as a bread spread”. Provided for free. • Fish and shell fish recommended instead of all types of meat • All consumed meat to be lean (visible fat should be removed) • Use of “brown bread” encouraged instead of “whole milk loaf” • Increased vegetable, nuts, beans, peas & fruit consumption encouraged • Margarine use was “entirely restricted” • Only 1 egg yolk per week • Multivitamin provided Normal diet (control) • No restrictions • No free foods were provided for controls • Multivitamin provided Leren et al. . Acta Med Scand. 1966; Suppl 466; 1-9 Page 6 Note! This data on diets is only available in Acta Med Scan publication (original paper version)
  7. 7. Methods, diet (2/3) Leren et al. . Acta Med Scand. 1966; Suppl 466; 1-9 (only in the paper version of the study) Page 7 Note! This data on diets is only available in Acta Med Scan publication (original paper version)

  9. 9. Results (myocardial infarctions) Leren et al. . Bull N Y Acad Med. 1968 August; 44(8): 1012–1020 Page 9 Absolute number of outcomes P=0.022 Δ - 33 % P=0.029 Δ - 56 % Difference in MI’s was driven by younger patients
  10. 10. Results (total cholesterol) Leren et al. . Bull N Y Acad Med. 1968 August; 44(8): 1012–1020 Page 10 Total cholesterol change from baseline (%) Multifactorial cholesterol lowering diet Baseline in both groups 7,6 mmol/L (296 mg/dl)
  11. 11. Results (diet) Multifactorial diet Normal diet Total fat 104 g (39 E %) N/A Soy bean oil 72 % of total fat N/A Fish fat 11,6 % of total fat N/A Animal fat 8.8 % of total fat N/A Cereal fat 5.0 % of total fat N/A Other fat sources 2.6 % of total fat N/A Cholesterol 264 mg N/A Carbohydrates 269 g N/A Protein 92 g N/A Leren et al. . Bull N Y Acad Med. 1968 August; 44(8): 1012–1020 Page 11 Dietary intakes (based on a sub-group representing 4 % of all subjects)
  12. 12. Pronutritionist’s discussion (1/3) • Oslo Diet-Heart delivered robust results in secondary prevention of coronary heart disease (CHD -33 % & fatal MI -54 %) • Oslo Diet Heart Study is not a sheer SFA/PUFA modification trial but a dietary pattern studysuch as Lyon Diet Heart or Predimed studies • Oslo Diet Heart dietary intakes were poorly reported. Only 4 % of participants provided any dietary data. In controls none provided dietary data. • “Dieters” possibly received 5 grams of marine omega-3 fatty acids, 15 mcg vitamin D extra, and controls received 7 grams more of TFA due to different dietary patterns (Ramsden et al. 2010) Leren et al. . Bull N Y Acad Med. 1968 August; 44(8): 1012–1020 Page 12
  13. 13. Pronutritionist’s discussion (2/3) Pursued dietary changes in Oslo Diet-Heart Means Method of support Increase in omega-6 fatty acids (linoleic acid) Soybean Oil for cooking or “as medicine” Nuts Free soybean oil Encouraged Increase in omega-3 fatty acids Canned sardines in cod liver oil Nuts Free canned sardine delivery twice during the study Encouraged Increase in Vitamin D Canned sardines in cod liver oil Free canned sardine delivery twice during the study Decrease in SFA intake Skim milk ↑, butter/margarine and meat restricted Encouraged/banned Decrease in trans fat intake Margarine restricted Banned Increase fiber and indigestible carbs Increase in brown bread & vegetable, fruit, beans intake Encouraged http://www.facebook.com/pron utritionist Leren et al. . Bull N Y Acad Med. 1968 August; 44(8): 1012–1020 Page 13
  14. 14. Pronutritionist’s discussion (3/3) • Oslo Diet Heart Study produced very similar results to Lyon Diet Heart Study in which TFA-low margarine was the vehicle of n-3 and n-6 fatty acids in the context of Mediterranean dietary pattern • Dietary pattern used in Oslo Diet Heart Study is very similar to what is recommended in many official dietary guidelines globally – Higher than usual intake of both n-6 and n-3 FAs – High fiber intake – Low refined carbohydrate intake – Low intake of saturated fat and cholesterol – High consumption of vegetables, fruits, berries, whole grains, nuts and beans – More fish and seafood and possibly poultry instead of of red and processed meat – More vegetable oils or margarines low in TFA instead of butter and old- fashioned margarines high in TFA Page 14
