Macronutrient intake and type 2 diabetes risk in middle-aged Australian women. Results from the Australian Longitudinal Study on Women's Health.


A diet consists of a complex combination of foods and nutrients. A way to examine the joint effect of food intakes and capture overall diet is to identify dietary patterns. A great deal of research on the role of diet and diabetes has resulted in a considerable body of evidence relating specific dietary patterns to the risk of diabetes, however, studies have used different approaches for identifying these dietary patterns. The aim of this project is to compare dietary patterns derived by two different statistical methods and to compare the associations between these dietary patterns and diabetes.
