GlucoMenu® Tip of the Day:
Having diabetes increases risk for heart disease.
If you have been told to limit dietary cholesterol, you may wonder how much cholesterol to consume and what food sources are high in cholesterol.
Cholesterol is a type of fat that humans and animals make.
The easiest way to remember what contains cholesterol is to think about whether it came from an animal...
"if it has eyes, it has cholesterol."
The American Heart Association recommends limiting dietary cholesterol to 300 mg. or less each day.
