Statement by the Egg Nutrition Center and American Egg Board on Diabetes Care study on egg consumption
Date:2/4/2009

e been associated with less healthful lifestyle behaviors overall. The study authors note several limitations of the study design, including:

  • Limited dietary intake data available for male subjects, which restricted the researchers' ability to control for intake from nutrients associated with an increased risk of type 2 diabetes, such as saturated fat
  • One-time (baseline) estimation of egg consumption for female participants
  • Likelihood of other contributing lifestyle factors that weren't controlled for in the study
  • Lack of applicability to the general population, as more than 90 percent of the subjects were Caucasian

The authors of this study note that eggs serve as a good source of protein and other important nutrients, and that the observational nature of the study design could have introduced factors that could partly or completely explain the unexpected results. However, given the incidence of type 2 diabetes and the implications of these observations, further research is necessary to clarify the role of egg intake and other lifestyle factors in this population.
