The study determined that participants with low adherence to the AHEI increased their risk of cardiovascular and noncardiovascular death.
We showed that following specific dietary recommendations such as the one provided by the AHEI may be useful in reducing the risk of unhealthy aging, while avoidance of the 'Western-type foods' might actually improve the possibility of achieving older ages free of chronic diseases and remaining highly functional," notes Dr.
Overall, researchers found that participants who scored the highest on the DMI had a lower total CVD risk, while adherence to the additional, AHEI dietary recommendations was associated with a lower risk of CVD and HF.
The AHEI scoring method comprised nine components, including: vegetables; fruit; nuts and soy protein; ratio of white to red meat, with white meat defined as poultry and fish and red meat defined as beef, pork, lamb and processed meats; cereal fiber; trans fat; ratio of polyunsaturated to saturated fat; duration of multivitamin use; and alcohol intake.
In the AHEI component, lower CVD risk was associated with higher fruit intake, more white meat than red meat consumption, less trans fat, taking a multivitamin, and modest alcohol consumption.
They examined changes in AHEI scores for a $1 shift in spending on various food groups, and found that greater spending on nuts, soy, beans and whole grains yielded a higher AHEI score, while greater spending on red and processed meats, and high-fat dairy products resulted in a lower AHEI.
4 AHEI is an immune complex-mediated vasculitis which initiates from bacterial or viral infections (mostly related to the upper respiratory tract and urinary system) in addition to some medications specially antibiotics and, with less probability, vaccination.
face, mostly asymmetric, may be the first sign of AHEI.
The main differential diagnosis of AHEI is Henoch-Schoenlein purpura (HSP), and the differentiation of these two diseases from each other is not difficult.
We adjusted the conditional logistic regression model for matching factors, including age at urine sample collection, ethnicity, fasting status, and time of sample collection, menopausal status, and use of hormone replacement therapy (NHSII only), urinary creatinine levels, BMI, smoking status, postmenopausal hormone use (NHS only), oral contraceptive use (NHSII only), physical activity, alcohol use, family history of diabetes, history of hypercholesterolemia or hypertension, and AHEI score.
We adjusted these analyses for matching factors, including age at urine sample collection, ethnicity, fasting status, and time of sample collection, menopausal status and use of hormone replacement therapy (NHSII only), urinary creatinine levels, smoking status, postmenopausal hormone use (NHS only), oral contraceptive use (NHSII only), physical activity, alcohol use, family history of diabetes, history of hypercholesterolemia or hypertension, and AHEI score.
We adjusted the multivariate conditional logistic regression models with restricted cubic splines for matching factors, including age at urine sample collection, ethnicity, fasting status, and time of sample collection, menopausal status and use of hormone replacement therapy (NHSII only), urinary creatinine levels, BMI, smoking status, postmenopausal hormone use (NHS only), oral contraceptive use (NHSII only), physical activity, alcohol use, family history of diabetes, history of hypercholesterolemia or hypertension, and AHEI score.
