Tittel

Metabolic syndrome in a multi-ethnic population in Northern Norway – The SAMINOR Study.

Vitenskapelig sammendrag

 

Metabolic syndrome (MetS) is recognized as a reliable long-term predictor of adverse health outcomes. Information on the prevalence of chronic disease in various ethnic groups of Northern Norway is sparse. The Population-based Study on Health and Living conditions in Regions with Sami and Norwegian populations – The SAMINOR Study performed among the rural multi-ethnic population in Northern Norway was designed in an effort to address the lack of health information about the indigenous people in Norway – the Sami. The study consists of two cross-sectional surveys, SAMINOR 1 and SAMINOR 2, both conducted within an epidemiological methodological framework. The SAMINOR Study includes several public health related themes with an interdisciplinary approach, covering research questions on lifestyle and risk factors related to diseases such as cardiovascular diseases (CVD), diabetes mellitus (DM) and MetS.

The present project  will bring new knowledge to the field of metabolic - and chronic lifestyle diseases factors among Sami and non-Sami population in north. In the proposed project, based on data from the SAMINOR Study, we will study the prevalence and time trends of MetS, the relation of anthropometric measures and clustering of MetS components, and to what degree MetS predicts mortality in the population of Northern Norway.

Metode

The SAMINOR Study is an epidemiological study conducted by the Centre for Sami Health Research (CSHR). The study is designed as a repeated cross-sectional population study at present consisting of the SAMINOR 1 (2003-04) and the SAMINOR 2 (2012-14) surveys performed with a ~10 year interval . The repeated cross-sectional design focusing on the same population also enables longitudinal analyses to be conducted. In the proposed project data from SAMINOR 1 and the SAMINOR 2 Clinical Survey will be used.
