Abstract Objectives to evaluate the independent association of Dietary Inflammatory Index (DII®) score with overweight and obesity in Brazilians participants of the Cohort of Universities of Minas Gerais (CUME project). Research Methods & Procedures cross-sectional study with 3,151 graduates and postgraduates (2,197 women) with a mean (SD) age of 36.3 (± 9.4) years. Sociodemographic characteristics, lifestyle and anthropometric data were assessed by online self-reported questionnaire. In additio...

Purpose Chronic inflammation has been implicated in endometrial carcinogenesis yet the impact of potentially modifiable exposures that might affect inflammation, like diet, has been understudied. This study examined the association between the dietary inflammatory index (DII®), a literature-derived tool to assess the inflammatory potential of diet, and risk of developing, and survival after a diagnosis of endometrial cancer (EC).

Aims:We aimed to explore the relationships between diet quality, dietary inflammatory potential or body mass index and outcomes of a clinical trial of nutraceutical treatment for bipolar depression...
Diet may modulate chronic inflammation. The aim of this study is to investigate whether the dietary inflammatory index (DII®) was associated with the risk of colorectal cancer in a Chinese population. A case-control study was conducted from July 2010 to April 2019, in Guangzhou, China. A total of 2502 eligible cases were recruited along with 2538 age- (5-year interval) and sex-matched controls. Dietary data derived from a validated food frequency questionnaire were used to calculate the energy-a...

This cross-sectional study evaluates the relationship of the dietary inflammatory index (DII), a novel tool developed to measure the inflammatory capacity of a diet, with pulmonary functions and asthma control test (ACT) scores in asthmatic individuals. The study included 120 patients who were diagnosed with asthma for at least one year. The anthropometric measurements, one-day long nutrition uptake records, pulmonary function tests, and ACT scores of the respondents were recorded and compared a...

Abstract Objective Persistent low-grade inflammation is related to the development of many chronic diseases. The dietary inflammatory index (DII®) is designed to assess the potential impact of diet on an individual's inflammation status. We aimed to evaluate the construct validity of the DII using inflammation biomarkers in Japanese adults. Research Methods & Procedures Overall, 565 participants from the food frequency questionnaire (FFQ) validation study of the Japan Public Health Center-Based ...

An anti-inflammatory dietary intervention called the Inflammation Management Intervention (IMAGINE) was adapted to emphasize watermelon due to its anti-inflammatory properties. This pilot study (n ...
Chronic inflammation plays a role in the development of chronic lymphocytic leukaemia (CLL), and diet might modulate chronic inflammation. This study aims to evaluate the association between the dietary inflammatory index (DII®) and CLL. A total of 366 CLL cases and 1643 controls of the Spanish multicase-control (MCC) Spain study were included. The inflammatory potential of the diet was assessed using the energy-adjusted dietary inflammatory index (E-DII) based on 30 items from a validated semi-...
