Nutrition and cardiometabolic health: the role of DNA methylation
Voeding en cardiometabole gezondheid: de rol van DNA methylatie
The overall aim of this thesis was to investigate associations between nutritional factors, DNA methylation, and cardiometabolic health in children as well as adults. (Figure 1.1.). Therefore, the following objectives were:
1. To investigate nutritional factors associated with DNA methylation.
2. To identify differentially methylated CpG sites in relation to cardiometabolic risk factors.
3. To examine associations between nutrition and cardiometabolic risk factors in childhood.
4. To examine associations between nutrition and cardiometabolic diseases in adulthood.
