BACKGROUND The prevalence of smoking in diabetic patients remains high, and reliable quantification of the excess mortality and morbidity risks associated with smoking is important for diabetes management. We performed a systematic review and meta-analysis of prospective cohort studies to evaluate the relation of active smoking with risk of total mortality(More)
BACKGROUND Cigarette smoking remains the leading avoidable cause of disease burden worldwide, and observational studies have linked various smoking behaviours (active smoking, passive smoking, and smoking cessation) with risk of type 2 diabetes. We did a meta-analysis of prospective studies to investigate the associations between various smoking behaviours(More)
BACKGROUND The liver-derived C-reactive protein (CRP) is a sensitive and systemic biomarker of inflammation, and has been associated with increased risk of developing type 2 diabetes in populations other than Chinese. Therefore, we prospectively examined the relation between plasma levels of CRP and risk of type 2 diabetes (T2D) among a Chinese population.(More)
Metabolomics has provided new insight into diabetes risk assessment. In this study we characterised the human serum metabolic profiles of participants in the Singapore Chinese Health Study cohort to identify metabolic signatures associated with an increased risk of type 2 diabetes. In this nested case–control study, baseline serum metabolite profiles were(More)
