Introduction
I work at the Department of Community Medicine at the UiT the Arctic University of Norway. My current research interest involves overweight and obesity, body composition, cardiometabolic disease and diet. I'm currently positioned as the program leader for the Master in Public health, and as an advisor for the project "Perspectives on COVID-19 in Sami communities in Norway" at the Centre for Sami Health Research.

Background A healthy diet throughout the life course improves health and reduces the risk of disease. There is a need for new knowledge of the relation between diet and health, but existing methods to collect information on food and nutrient intake have their limitations. Evaluations of new tools to assess dietary intake are needed, especially in o...

Objective Overweight, defined as excessive fat mass, is a long-standing worldwide public health challenge. Traditional anthropometric measures used to identify overweight and obesity do not assess body composition. The aim of this study was to examine population trends in general and abdominal fat mass during the past two decades. Methods This stu...

Funding Acknowledgements Type of funding sources: None. Background Although the use of guidelines in clinical practice is emphasised, large multi-center studies of patients with cardiovascular disease have shown secondary prevention to be suboptimal, which increase the risk of recurrent events. Purpose To examine ESC guideline treatment target ac...

Vegetables, fruits and berries are associated with reduced disease risk, and recommended intake is “five-a-day”. We studied the intake of vegetables, fruits and berries and compliance with “five-a-day” in 11,425 adults (40–96 years) who completed a food frequency questionnaire in the seventh wave of the Tromsø Study (2015–2016). Intake and proporti...

Background: Reference values for visceral adipose tissue (VAT) are needed and it has been advocated that body composition measures depend on both the technique and methods applied, as well as the population of interest. We aimed to develop reference values for VAT in absolute grams (VATg), percent (VAT%), and as a kilogram-per-meters-squared index...

Background: Body mass index (BMI) increases while cardiometabolic risk factors decrease in individuals in high‐income countries. This paradoxical observation raises the question of whether current measures of overweight and obesity properly identify cardiometabolic risk. Methods: A total of 3675 participants (59% women) aged 40–84 years with wholeb...

Aims To investigate European guideline treatment target achievement in cardiovascular risk factors, medication use, and lifestyle, after myocardial infarction (MI) or ischaemic stroke, in women and men living in Norway. Methods and results In the population-based Tromsø Study 2015–16 (attendance 65%), 904 participants had previous validated MI and...

Worldwide, there are socioeconomic inequalities in health and diet. We studied the relationship between education and nutrient intake in 11,302 women and men aged 40–96 years who participated in the seventh survey of the population-based Tromsø Study (2015–2016), Norway (attendance 65%). Diet was assessed using a validated food-frequency questionna...

Introduction: According to the Global Burden of Disease project, unhealthy diet accounts for most of the disease burden in Norway. Current recommendations on nutrient intake in Norway reflect those published in the evidence-based Nordic Nutrition Recommendations from 2012 (NNR2012). Aim: To study energy and nutrient intakes and compliance with t...

Purpose Early age at menarche (AAM) has been associated with increased mortality and morbidity, including premature death from all causes, breast cancer and cardiovascular diseases. The aim of this study was to examine the association between AAM and all-cause mortality. Subjects and methods A total of 12,409 women aged 25–94 years who took part i...

Background Previous studies of the reproducibility of self-reported age at menarche have been limited because of small study samples, short follow-up and the limited age span of the women included. Methods The present study assessed the reproducibility of age at menarche in 6731 women with a wide variation of age when giving the information about a...

Project
The goal of the project is to examine life course changes/trajectories of body fatness and the association to cancer risk. We will further investigate the importance of factors such as age at onset, cumulative years lived with body fatness and intensity of body fatness, together with important lifestyle factors such as smoking, diet, physical activity, hormone use and education.
Project
First, we will investigate the adherence to nutritional guidelines in the general population. Second, we will investigate the longitudinal change in body composition and compare it to traditional overweight measures. Last, we will investigate which diet characteristics that are associated with cardiometabolic disease.
