: We conducted latent class analyses to identify women with homogeneous combinations of lifestyle and behavioral variables and tested whether latent classes were prospectively associated with diabetes incidence for women with or without baseline obesity. A total of 64,710 postmenopausal women aged 50-79 years without prevalent diabetes at baseline (years 1993-1998) were followed until 2018 with a mean follow-up of 14.6 years (sd = 6.4). Lifestyle variables included smoking, diet quality, physica...

BACKGROUND: Few studies have assessed the associations of ceramides and sphingomyelins (SMs) with diabetes in humans. OBJECTIVE: We assessed associations of 15 circulating ceramides and SM species with incident diabetes in 2 studies. METHODS: The analysis included 435 American-Indian participants from the Strong Heart Study (nested case-control design for analyses; mean age: 57 y; 34% male; median time until diabetes 4.3 y for cases) and 1902 participants from the Strong Heart Family Study (pros...

Abstract Experimental and prospective epidemiologic evidence suggest that arsenic exposure has diabetogenic effects. However, little is known about how family exposure to arsenic may affect risk for type 2 diabetes (T2D)-related outcomes in adulthood. We evaluated the association of both maternal and offspring arsenic exposure with fasting glucose and incident T2D in 466 participants of the Strong Heart Family Study. Total arsenic (ΣAs) exposure was calculated as the sum of inorganic arsenic (iA...

Background: American Indians (AIs) suffer disproportionately high rate of type 2 diabetes (T2D). Traditional biomarkers have limited value in predicting and tracking early onset and progression of ...

Background: In postmenopausal women, use of hormone therapy is associated with a lower incidence of diabetes (DM). The association of adjuvant endocrine therapy (AET) with DM has not been well studied among women treated for early stage breast cancer. The objective of this study was to examine the association of AET with risk of developing DM among postmenopausal women who developed breast cancer. Methods: 5,013 postmenopausal women from the Women’s Health Initiative diagnosed with non-metastati...
