(2021). 22-OR: Exploring the association between physical activity levels and sedentary behaviors with risk of T2DM from childhood to adolescence: A causal inference analysis. Diabetes, 70(Supplement_1).
Causal inference methods were developed to emulate repeated randomized trials in observational studies, notably by controlling for time-varying confounders. Using these methods, we examined the complex relationship between physical activity, sedentary behaviors and T2DM accounting for interrelations between time-varying lifestyle habits and their reciprocal effects on T2DM across childhood.
