    2 days ago - By Journal of Nutrition

    ABSTRACTBackgroundNonlinear association between serum 25-hydroxyvitamin D concentration and all-cause mortality has been widely reported for the general population, but this association has not been quantified for individuals with inflammatory bowel disease .ObjectivesThe aim was to explore the association between serum 25D and all-cause mortality in individuals with IBD.MethodsWe identified 2690 females and 2532 males aged 40-69 y with diagnosed IBD at baseline in the UK Biobank. Serum 25D concentration was measured by direct competitive chemiluminescent immunoassay. The outcome was...

  • Low Urinary Potassium Excretion is Associated With Higher Risk of All-Cause Mortality in Patients With Type 2 Diabetes: Results of the Dutch DIALECT Cohort

    3 days ago - By Nutrition

    AbstractBackgroundLow 24 h urinary potassium excretion, reflecting low potassium intake, is associated with premature mortality in the general population.ObjectivesWhether urinary potassium excretion is associated with all-cause mortality in patients with type 2 diabetes is unknown.MethodsWe performed a prospective cohort study in 654 patients with type 2 diabetes of the Diabetes and Lifestyle Cohort Twente. Sex-specific tertiles of 24 h urinary potassium excretion were analysed in a multivariable Cox regression model with all-cause mortality. The outpatient program of the hospital uses a...
