Predicted Changes in ASCVD Risk by the Three Diets

Baseline ADD*LF (∆)*MF (∆)*AV (∆)*
Estimated ASCVD 10‐year Risk (%) (for 40 to 69 years old participants)2.7 (1.0, 6.3)−0.05 (CI: −0.35, 0.1) P=0.44−0.15 (CI: −0.3, 0) P=0.068−0.15 (CI: −0.45, 0) P=0.035
Estimated ASCVD lifetime Risk (%) (for 20 to 59 years old participants)36 (27, 46)0.0 (CI: −5.0, 0) P=0.2−5.0 (CI: −6.0, 0) P=0.006−2.5 (CI: −9.5, 0) P=0.04
  • AAD indicates average American diet; AV, avocado diet; AVCSD, atherosclerotic cardiovascular disease; LF, lower‐fat diet; MF, moderate‐fat diet.

  • * Risk at baseline was reported as median with 25% and 75% percentile values.

  • * The change in risk from baseline is the estimated median with 95% CI by the Wilcoxon Signed Rank Test. P<0.05 represents the median change value is significantly negative (<0).
