Clinical Prevention Research

Research area

  • Pre-diabetes and overweight
    With focus on prevention of type 2 diabetes among individuals at high risk of developing the disease.

  • Circadian rhythm and incretin hormones
    In my work I focus on the role of the circadian rhythm, especially the length of overnight fasting, on the incretin hormone response to glucose.

Current research

  • Gut incretin hormone release and fasting duration

    Utilizing data from the ADDITION-PRO study to examine associations of fasting duration, weekday and season with glucose-stimulated incretin response (GLP-1 and GIP) in individuals at low to high risk of diabetes and cardiovascular disease.
  • Gut incretin hormone release and circadian eating patterns

    In the ongoing PRE-D trial I am investigating the stability of circadian eating rhythms and how these are associated with incretin hormone response.
  • Time restricted eating and gut incretin hormone release

    Aim: To investigate there is an effect of time restricted feeding on gut hormone incretin release in the RESET trial.
