Predictive ability of different diet quality indices on subsequent risk of Non-communicable Disease (Study 1) (NCD) mortality and multimorbidity


Since a single nutrient approach was considered to be insufficient for detecting diet-disease associations, overall diet quality and pattern analysis,measuring a range of foods, food groups, and/or nutrients has emerged.Diet quality has received much attention as a predictor of non-communicable disease (NCD) mortality. However,inadequate work currently exists regarding the investigation of unhealthy diet and multimorbidity, defined as the presence of two or more chronic medical conditions. This project aims to investigate the predictive ability of diet quality on NCD mortality and morbidity among representative sample of women from the ALSWH cohort who born between 1973-78 and 1946-51.
