Nutrition, Development and Lifelong Health: Studies in Developing and Transitioning Populations

Lead Research Organisation: MRC Lifecourse Epidemiology Unit

Abstract

The mission of the MRC Lifecourse Epidemiology Unit is to provide a centre of excellence which uses epidemiological methods to promote human health by delineating the environmental and occupational causes throughout the lifecourse of: (1) chronic musculoskeletal disorders (osteoporosis, osteoarthritis and sarcopenia); and (2) metabolic disorders (diabetes mellitus, obesity and cardiovascular disease). Through understanding these causes, we aim to develop population-based and high risk preventive strategies against these disorders. This programme will explore the contributions made by maternal undernutrition to the origins of later diabetes and heart disease in the offspring. It is based in India, and includes a series of observational studies and trials.

Technical Summary

Past research in this programme has shown that the maternal undernutrition, and low birthweight and infant weight gain typical of poor rural populations in India are associated with reduced lean mass, bone mass and cognitive function in childhood and/or adult life, and an increased risk of low birthweight and stunting in the next generation. When early life undernutrition is followed by rapid childhood and adolescent weight gain or excessive adult weight gain, features that are enabled by economic transition and urbanisation, there is a high risk of insulin resistance and metabolic syndrome, type 2 diabetes and CVD. In women, this transition increases the risk of gestational diabetes, which also causes insulin resistance and diabetes in the next generation. Poor diet quality, leading to inadequate intakes of a range of vitamins and minerals, is common among poor rural and urban women, and is associated with lower birthweight. Vitamin B12 deficiency is common in India for cultural reasons, and may be a particularly important nutritional deficit in this population. Maternal vitamin B12 deficiency is associated with low birthweight, insulin resistance in the children, and increased maternal adiposity and gestational diabetes. A major focus of our future work will be on intervention studies. Of several possible intervention points in the dual cycle of risk, we have chosen the adolescent and young adult age group, with the objective of improving the health of young women before pregnancy, improving pregnancy outcomes and reducing metabolic/CVD risk in the children. Interventions will be designed not only for overtly undernourished women, but also for middle class urban women because they too, and their children, are at risk. Alongside these intervention studies, we will continue to follow-up our existing birth cohorts, to better define associations between early life factors and risk markers for later disease, disease endpoints (CVD and T2DM), bone health and cognition. In the Delhi study, we will explore inter-generational associations for these outcomes, by studying children of the cohort. Like the other ERC programmes, we will utilise the intervention and cohort studies to explore epigenetic mechanisms as a possible link between early nutrition and later outcomes. Other international collaborations will include studies of social factors in early life in relation to adult health and disease, and studies of the economic impact of impaired early development.

The main intention was to appraise the local community of our plans for our pre-conceptional complex intervention. We wanted to seek their views on the project so that we could plan our formative work and ensure community engagement in the project. The project was well received and it was humbling that the main reasons they were interested in participating in the project were: 1) the potential benefits to future generations; and 2) the potential for scaling up at state or national level.
