Healthy Living

Diabetics and Obesity

Health is not a matter of combatting a single problem with a single solution. To prevent and combat the serious lifestyle diseases that pose a threat to both the health of the individual and the economy, the issues faced need to be approached from many angles. Academics in the University of Copenhagen's well established research environments are involved in interdisciplinary studies designed to improve public health. Below are some examples of some of the research that makes up the many pieces of the huge health jigsaw.

  • More protein and fewer carbohydrates to prevent obesity
    The European project 'Diogene' has shown that a diet with more protein and fewer carbohydrates prevents weight gain. The same applies to diets based on slowly metabolised carbohydrates (i.e. with a low glycemic index). The beneficial effect of protein is seen in both adults and children.
  • The beneficial effect of exercise

    We continue to learn more about the biological and genetic mechanisms underlying the beneficial effect of exercise and a healthy diet. Recent studies have shown that 30 minutes of exercise a day has the same beneficial effect as 60 minutes.

  • Food and meals are influenced by health considerations and habits

    Health and weight considerations are part of many people's everyday lives, but in practice our habits are to a large extent also influenced by other concerns such as the practical circumstances, social conventions and the desire to create and maintain social relationships. For example, there are large variations in how obesity is experienced and handled by men and women and by the well- and poorly educated.

  • Cost-effective prevention
    Prevention is important for improving public health. Research into prevention campaigns shows what works best, costs least and reaches the parts of the population in most need of it. Structural solutions such as the prices of tobacco, alcohol and food, traffic systems that promote physical activity and reduce air pollution and initiatives that reduce stress at work, have proven to be the most cost-effective. Structural prevention measures also reduce social inequalities in health care.
