Aims/hypotheses Smoking and use of smokeless tobacco (snus) are associated with an increased risk of type 2 diabetes. We investigated whether smoking and snus use increase the risk of latent autoimmune diabetes in adults (LADA) and elucidated potential interaction with HLA high-risk genotypes. Methods Analyses were based on Swedish case–control da...

Background: Obesity is a disease associated with high direct medical costs and high indirect costs resulting from productivity loss. The high prevalence of obesity generates the need for payers to identify cost-effective weight loss approaches. Among various weight management techniques, the OPTI (Optifast®) program is a clinically recognised tota...

Aims/hypothesis: Excessive weight is a risk factor for type 2 diabetes, but its role in the promotion of autoimmune diabetes is not clear. We investigated the risk of latent autoimmune diabetes in adults (LADA) in relation to overweight/obesity in two large population-based studies. Methods: Analyses were based on incident cases of LADA (n = 425...
Article
Aim: Coffee consumption is inversely related to risk of type 2 diabetes (T2D). In contrast, an increased risk of latent autoimmune diabetes in adults (LADA) has been reported in heavy coffee consumers, primarily in a subgroup with stronger autoimmune characteristics. Our study aimed to investigate whether coffee consumption interacts with HLA geno...
Article
Objectives: Obesity is associated with high direct medical costs and indirect costs resulting from productivity loss. High prevalence of obesity generates a justified need to identify cost-effective weight loss approaches from a payer’s perspective. Within the variety of weight management techniques, OPTIFAST® is a clinically recognized and scienti...
Article
Aim: It has been suggested that experiencing serious life events may promote Type 1 diabetes in children. Studies in adults are lacking, as are studies on the interaction of life events with genetic factors. We aimed to investigate life events and the risk of latent autoimmune diabetes in adults (LADA) and Type 2 diabetes while taking into account...
Article
Background A family history of diabetes (FHD) is a strong predictor of diabetes risk, yet has rarely been investigated in latent autoimmune diabetes in adults (LADA). This study therefore investigated the risk of LADA and type 2 diabetes (T2D) in relation to FHD, taking into account the type of diabetes in relatives. Methods Data from a population...
Article
Aims: It has been suggested that moist snuff (snus), a smokeless tobacco product that is high in nicotine and widespread in Scandinavia, increases the risk of Type 2 diabetes. Previous studies are however few, contradictory and, with regard to autoimmune diabetes, lacking. Our aim was to study the association between snus use and the risk of Type...

Objective: Smoking is an established risk factor for type 2 diabetes. In contrast, it has been proposed that smoking may reduce the risk of latent autoimmune diabetes in adults (LADA), but studies are scarce. We aimed to study the impact of smoking on LADA and type 2 diabetes risks. Research design and methods: We used data from a Swedish case-c...

Objective Moderate alcohol consumption is associated with a reduced risk of type 2 diabetes. Our aim was to investigate whether alcohol consumption is associated with the risk of latent autoimmune diabetes in adults (LADA), an autoimmune form of diabetes with features of type 2 diabetes. Design A population-based case–control study was carried out...
Article
AimsCoffee consumption is associated with a reduced risk of Type 2 diabetes. Our aim was to investigate if coffee intake may also reduce the risk of latent autoimmune diabetes in adults, an autoimmune form of diabetes with features of Type 2 diabetes.Methods We used data from a population-based case–control study with incident cases of adult onset...

Obesity is one of today's controversial public health problems. While obesity increases the risk of morbidity due to diseases such as diabetes and hypertension, a high Body Mass Index (BMI) is protective against bone loss. On the other hand, calcium individually is an important mineral that makes the bone structure firm. This cross-sectional study...

Introduction: Adult-onset autoimmune diabetes is prevalent, yet there are limited data on risk factors. Aim: Our aim was to examine how combinations of modifiable lifestyle factors are associated with risk of adultonset autoimmune diabetes and to estimate the Population Attributable Risk (PAR) related to such factors. Methods: We used incidence dat...

OBJECTIVE To investigate the association between smoking habits and risk of autoimmune diabetes in adults and of type 2 diabetes.RESEARCH DESIGN AND METHODS We used data from the three surveys of the Nord Trøndelag Health Study, spanning 1984-2008 and including a cohort of 90,819 Norwegian men (48%) and women (52%) aged ≥20 years. Incident cases of...

Diabet. Med. 30, 56–64 (2013) Aims We investigated the influence of different aspects of alcohol consumption on the risk of Type 2 diabetes and autoimmune diabetes in adults. Methods We used data from the Nord-Trøndelag Health Survey (HUNT) study, in which all adults aged ≥ 20 years from Nord-Trondelag County were invited to participate in three su...

The purpose of this study was to assess infant feeding and some maternal related factors in Tehranian mothers, 2008. In this cross sectional study 300 women with children aged between 12 to 24 months from six urban public health centers in Tehran were randomly selected and interviewed. Information regarding participants' demographics, type of deli...
