About the thesis

The overall objective of this project was to investigate the effect of an increased protein intake, including animal and plant protein in pre-diabetic, overweight or obese individuals on health outcomes: markers of kidney function and putative risk factors for colorectal cancer as well as insulin sensitivity and kidney function in healthy individuals.

The thesis is based on PREVIEW data from three European population studies: NQplus, Lifelines and the Young Finns Study as well as the large international RCT.
