Projekt 2 : Dietary quality and type 2 diabetes

Analyses of diet-associated diabetes risk within Europe are the subject of the project InterAct (investigating how our genes and lifestyle interact to lead to diabetes), which is based on data of incident cases within the EPIC cohort. We investigated several diet quality indices and observed that dietary patterns with low consumption of sugar-sweetened beverages, red meat and refined grain bread are related to lower diabetes risk (Fig. 1). However, another project based on the Multiethnic Cohort in Hawaii suggests the existence of ethnic differences in risk of type 2 diabetes associated with dietary quality scores. These may be due to a different consumption pattern of food components. The methodology of dietary pattern analyses and their relevance for health outcomes are also the focus of our involvement in the DEDIPAC (Determinants of Diet and Physical Activity) consortium.
