Sociodemographic and lifestyle predictors of incident hospital admissions with multimorbidity in a general population, 1999–2019: The EPIC-Norfolk cohort

BMJ Open Sep 26, 2020

Luben R, Hayat S, Wareham N, et al. - Researchers investigated the independent links for a range of demographic, lifestyle and physiological determinants and the probability of subsequent hospital incident multimorbidity among 25,014 men and women aged 40–79 in a British prospective population-based study. Participants were recruited in 1993–1997 and followed up until 2019. A hospital admission in 18,179 participants (73% of the population) was reported between 1999 and 2009. In 6% and 12% of participants, baseline 5-year and 10-year incident multimorbidities were noted, respectively. Findings showed that increased risk of future incident hospital admissions with multimorbidity was observed in relation to factors including age, male gender and potentially modifiable lifestyle behaviours such as smoking, body mass index, physical inactivity and low fruit and vegetable consumption.
