Vitamin D and mortality: Individual participant data meta-analysis of standardized 25-hydroxyvitamin D in 26916 individuals from a European consortium
(Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel; Peer reviewed, 2017-02-16)
Background:<br>Vitamin D deficiency may be a risk factor for mortality but previous meta-analyses lacked standardization of laboratory methods for 25-hydroxyvitamin D (25[OH]D) concentrations and used aggregate data instead of individual participant data (IPD). We therefore performed an IPD meta-analysis on the association between standardized serum 25(OH)D and mortality.<br>Methods:<br>In a European ...
Uric acid predicts mortality and ischaemic stroke in subjects with diastolic dysfunction: the Tromsø Study 1994-2013
(Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel; Peer reviewed, 2017-01-31)
Aims: To investigate whether serum uric acid predicts adverse outcomes in persons with indices of diastolic dysfunction in a general population. <br>Methods and results: We performed a prospective cohort study among 1460 women and 1480 men from 1994 to 2013. End- points were all-cause mortality, incident myocardial infarction, and incident ischaemic stroke. We strati fi ed the analyses ...
Association of occasional smoking with total mortality in the population-based Tromsø study, 2001-2015
(Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel; Peer reviewed, 2017-12-28)
Objectives: <br> There is a shift in the smoking population from daily smokers to light or occasional smokers. The knowledge about possible adverse health effects of this new smoking pattern is limited. We investigated smoking habits with focus on occasional smoking in relation to total mortality in a follow-up study of a Norwegian general population. <br> Setting: <br> A population study ...
Atrial fibrillation is associated with cognitive decline in stroke-free subjects: the Tromsø Study
(Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel; Peer reviewed, 2017-09-28)
Background and purpose:<br>Previous studies have shown associations between atrial fibrillation (AF) and cognitive decline. We investigated this association in a prospective population study, focusing on whether stroke risk factors modulated this association in stroke-free women and men.<br>Methods:<br>We included 4983 participants (57% women) from the fifth survey of the Tromsø Study (Tromsø 5, ...
