  • *Numbers in the subcohort exclude type 2 diabetic case subjects.

  • †rMED categories: low adherence to the MDP (rMED 0–6); medium adherence to the MDP (rMED 7–10); high adherence to the MDP (rMED 11–18).

  • ‡rMED included as a continuous variable (range 0–18).

  • §Modified Cox proportional hazards regression models stratified by center. Multiple adjusted models were adjusted for sex, BMI (as continuous variable), educational level (no formal education, primary school, technical/professional school, secondary school, and longer education including university degree), physical activity (inactive, moderately inactive, moderately active, and active), smoking status (never, former, and three categories of current smoker: 1–10 cigarettes day−1, 11–20 cigarettes day−1, and >20 cigarettes day−1), and total calorie intake (as a continuous variable).
