Lifestyle medicine in obesity & diabetes
To discover how diet and physical activity can help to prevent, care and cure chronic diseases.
Diet and physical activity can have a major impact on chronic diseases, in terms of prevention, delaying disease onset, or relieving the burden of disease. We study the role of these lifestyle factors, primarily in humans, using observational studies and lifestyle interventions. As outcomes, we study weight gain and obesity, glucose metabolism and diabetes type 2, major chronic diseases, and mortality. We look at associations between these factors from different perspectives: how do such associations change with age, or with severity of illness? Are they influenced by gender, socio-economic status, or region of residence?
