The overall aim of the Health2010-14 is to monitor the prevalence and trends of common chronic diseases (osteoporosis, diabetes, cardiovascular disease, asthma, allergy, and eczema) that are often un-diagnosed in the general population as well as biomarkers of micronutrient status. Specific aims include identification of novel lifestyle and genetic risk factors for the above diseases by investigating gene-lifestyle interactions.

Further study details as provided by Allan Linneberg, Glostrup University Hospital, Copenhagen:

Primary Outcome Measures:
  • 5-year change in prevalence of biomarkers of chronic diseases (e.g. diabetes, asthma, allergy) and micronutrient status (e.g. vitamin D status). [ Time Frame: 5 years ]

Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • significant interaction (on a additive scale) between Vitamin D status and genetic variants in the Vitamin D receptor in relation to selected chronic disease biomarkers [ Time Frame: 5 years ]

Biospecimen Retention:   Samples With DNA
Urine, serum, whole blood, extracted DNA

Enrollment: 1522

Cross-sectional general population study

Detailed Description:
Over a 5-year period a series of population-based studies are carried out including a total of up to 10,000 persons aged 18-69 years selected from the general population of Copenhagen, Denmark. The study also include a follow-up of a previous population study (the Health2006). Participants complete questionnaires on health, lifestyle, and social factors and undergo a health examination including measurements of metabolic biomarkers, allergy tests, anthropometric measures, bioimpedance, biomarkers of micronutrients, spirometry.
