Nutritionist Ignatikova: yellow cheese is harmful for hypertension and kidney disease

Dietician Elena Ignatikova stated that in case of some diseases one should stop eating yellow cheese.

Dietician Ignatikova stated: cheese, despite its inherent benefit, should be consumed strictly in moderation. First of all, fatty varieties, that is, yellow cheese, require restrictions. The specialist noted that yellow cheeses (for example, Gouda, Maasdam) contain a lot of saturated fat. Its regular excess consumption is a factor in increasing cholesterol levels, plaque formation and the development of atherosclerosis.

“Such cheeses also contain quite a lot of salt, which leads to fluid retention in the body, the appearance of edema and increased blood pressure. Plus, salt causes the synthesis of stress hormones,” Elena Ignatikova told Sputnik radio
The doctor emphasized that some chronic diseases require the abandonment of such a product saturated with fat and salt. Ignatikova warned: yellow cheese is harmful for hypertension and kidney disease. In addition, it is undesirable to eat it in cases of obesity, gastrointestinal diseases, including cholelithiasis.

Another feature of cheese is that it causes an allergic reaction in people with sensitivity to milk.

For those who have no contraindications, the nutritionist recommended eating yellow cheese in an amount of no more than 50 grams per day.

“Yellow fatty cheeses are recommended to be consumed in an amount of no more than 30-50 grams per day. These are two small pieces. Anything more leads to an increase in the calorie content of food and the deposition of fat in fat depots,” the expert warned.
