Objective: Low serum albumin concentration is associated with poor health outcomes, but its relationship with the risk of fractures has not been reliably quantified. We aimed to assess the prospective association of serum albumin with the risk of fractures in a general population. Subjects and Methods: Baseline serum albumin concentrations were measured in 2,245 men aged 42–61 years in the Kuopio Ischemic Heart Disease study. Hazard ratios (HRs) (95% confidence intervals) were calculated for incident fractures. Results: A total of 121 fractures (hip, humeral, or wrist) were recorded during a median follow-up of 25.6 years. The risk of fractures increased linearly below a serum albumin concentration of ∼48 g/L. The age-adjusted HR (95% CI) for fractures per 1 standard deviation lower serum albumin was 1.24 (1.05–1.48). On further adjustment for several conventional and emerging risk factors, the HR was attenuated to 1.21 (1.01–1.45). Comparing the bottom versus top quartile of serum albumin levels, the corresponding adjusted HRs were 2.48 (1.37–4.48) and 2.26 (1.23–4.14). The association of serum albumin with fracture risk did not differ substantially according to age, body mass index, blood pressure, physical activity, alcohol consumption, socioeconomic status, inflammation, prevalent diseases, and smoking. Serum albumin at a threshold of 41.5 g/L demonstrated an area under the curve of 0.5850. Conclusion: In middle-aged Caucasian men, low serum albumin is associated with an increased risk of future fractures. The potential relevance of serum albumin concentrations in fracture prevention and prediction deserves further evaluation. ...

Laukkanen, T.; Laukkanen, Jari; Kunutsor, S. K. (S. Karger, 2018)Objective: Sauna bathing has been suggested to promote mental well-being and relaxation, but the evidence is uncertain with respect to mental disorders. We aimed to assess the association of frequency of sauna bathing with ...
Physical activity and risk of venous thromboembolism : systematic review and meta-analysis of prospective cohort studies Kunutsor, Setor K.; Mäkikallio, Timo H.; Seidu, Samuel; de Araújo, Claudio Gil Soares; Dey, Richard S.; Blom, Ashley W.; Laukkanen, Jari A. (Springer, 2020)The inverse association between physical activity and arterial thrombotic disease is well established. Evidence on the association between physical activity and venous thromboembolism (VTE) is divergent. We conducted a ...
Joint effect of blood pressure and C-reactive protein and the risk of sudden cardiac death : a prospective cohort study Kurl, Sudhir; Jae, Sae Y.; Voutilainen, Ari; Mäkikallio, Timo; Laukkanen, Jari A. (Elsevier, 2021)Background Both blood pressure and C-reactive protein (CRP) are each independently related to mortality risk. However, the combined effect of systolic blood pressure (SBP) and CRP on sudden cardiac death (SCD) risk has ...
