Longitudinal model building for diet quality and incident NCDs: 1973-78 cohort (Study 3)

Synopsis

There is rising non-communicable disease (NCD) prevalence with advancing age, with women disproportionately affected, and almost half of all Australian women with NCDs are in the window of reproductive age. Longitudinal analysis testing the association between diet quality (DQ) and NCDs is necessary to (i) improve the quality of methods used in studies of diet-disease relationships, and (ii) design future effective dietary intervention for NCD prevention. Therefore, this study aims to examine the impact of time-varying covariates and longitudinal analysis of diet as a predictor of NCDs in women from the ALSWH born between 1973-78.
