I really enjoyed your abstract presentation! I have two questions regarding your methods. How did you determine the relation between for instance LIPA and CVD incidence? Did you make subgroups of certain patterns that contained participants who mainly showed this physical activity intensity?
I was also wondering if i can get you opinion on whether a measurement period of 8 days at baseline with such a long follow-up period on CVD incidence is representable for ones physical activity level.
Thank you in advance.
Thank you for asking.
1. We used cox-regression model to determine the associations (relation). The physical variables such as LIPA and MVPA indicated time spent in these activities. Sorry that I might not explain that very clearly in my presentation.
2. It is true that this is an estimate for baseline. Nevertheless, it may be also true that your lifestyle would influence your health in a long future.
Hi, thank you for sharing these interesting results!
Do you have thoughts on why MVPA or VPA is associated (albeit not statistically significant) with higher CVD risk in men? This seems in contrast to what you would expect.
We are also wondering. It may be consistent with two recent findings that long-time occupational PA is associated with worse cardiometabolic health in men. But the accelerometers in this study cannot distinguish leisure and occupational PA.
