How did we get these numbers?

This test is based on a study published by the American National Institute of Health (NIH), called "Lifestyle Risk Factors and New-Onset Diabetes Mellitus in Older Adults". It was published in 2009 and based on a study examining the influence of lifestyle factors over a 10 year period (1989-1998) for 4,883 men and women. MAUDRRedS utilises the summary data of tables 2 and 3 in this study and has adapted it for this cummulative profile test.

The study reveals that improving ALL of the five lifestyle factors (see questions in test) can reduce the risk of getting Diabetes Mellitus (II) by 89%!
