Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Internal medicine
  • Diabetes mellitus
  • Disease

The scientist’s investigation covers issues in Internal medicine, Genetics, Diabetes mellitus, Genome-wide association study and Endocrinology. The study incorporates disciplines such as Surgery and Cardiology in addition to Internal medicine. Jaakko Tuomilehto has included themes like Relative risk and Incidence in his Diabetes mellitus study.

Jaakko Tuomilehto focuses mostly in the field of Genome-wide association study, narrowing it down to matters related to Genetic architecture and, in some cases, Imputation. His study in Endocrinology is interdisciplinary in nature, drawing from both Odds ratio, Disease and Cohort study. His Type 2 diabetes research is multidisciplinary, incorporating elements of Glucose tolerance test, Insulin, Glycemic, Insulin resistance and Overweight.

His most cited work include:

  • Prevention of type 2 diabetes mellitus by changes in lifestyle among subjects with impaired glucose tolerance. (8664 citations)
  • Analysis of protein-coding genetic variation in 60,706 humans (6694 citations)
  • THE METABOLIC SYNDROME AND TOTAL AND CARDIOVASCULAR DISEASE MORTALITY IN MIDDLE-AGED MEN (4401 citations)

What are the main themes of his work throughout his whole career to date?

Jaakko Tuomilehto spends much of his time researching Internal medicine, Diabetes mellitus, Type 2 diabetes, Endocrinology and Genetics. Jaakko Tuomilehto regularly ties together related areas like Cardiology in his Internal medicine studies. Jaakko Tuomilehto combines subjects such as Obesity, Incidence, Gerontology, Insulin and Disease with his study of Diabetes mellitus.

The concepts of his Incidence study are interwoven with issues in Epidemiology and Pediatrics. He usually deals with Type 2 diabetes and limits it to topics linked to Physical therapy and Randomized controlled trial. His studies in Genome-wide association study, Single-nucleotide polymorphism, Allele, Genetic association and Locus are all subfields of Genetics research.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Internal medicine (61.91%)
  • Diabetes mellitus (49.40%)
  • Type 2 diabetes (38.09%)

What were the highlights of his more recent work (between 2016-2021)?

  • Internal medicine (61.91%)
  • Diabetes mellitus (49.40%)
  • Type 2 diabetes (38.09%)

In recent papers he was focusing on the following fields of study:

Jaakko Tuomilehto mainly focuses on Internal medicine, Diabetes mellitus, Type 2 diabetes, Body mass index and Randomized controlled trial. His work deals with themes such as Placebo, Endocrinology and Prediabetes, which intersect with Internal medicine. The Diabetes mellitus study combines topics in areas such as Hazard ratio and Environmental health.

In his research, Blood lipids and Disease is intimately related to Waist, which falls under the overarching field of Type 2 diabetes. His biological study spans a wide range of topics, including Dyslipidemia and Cohort study. Jaakko Tuomilehto has researched Randomized controlled trial in several fields, including Cognitive training, Cognition, Confidence interval, Dementia and Physical therapy.

Between 2016 and 2021, his most popular works were:

  • Worldwide trends in body-mass index, underweight, overweight, and obesity from 1975 to 2016: a pooled analysis of 2416 population-based measurement studies in 128·9 million children, adolescents, and adults (2180 citations)
  • Worldwide trends in blood pressure from 1975 to 2015: a pooled analysis of 1479 population-based measurement studies with 19·1 million participants (824 citations)
  • Fine-mapping type 2 diabetes loci to single-variant resolution using high-density imputation and islet-specific epigenome maps. (503 citations)

In his most recent research, the most cited papers focused on:

  • Internal medicine
  • Diabetes mellitus
  • Disease

Jaakko Tuomilehto mostly deals with Internal medicine, Diabetes mellitus, Type 2 diabetes, Genome-wide association study and Genetics. His Internal medicine research is multidisciplinary, relying on both Placebo and Endocrinology. His Diabetes mellitus study integrates concerns from other disciplines, such as Lower risk, Gestational diabetes and Intensive care medicine.

His study on Type 2 diabetes also encompasses disciplines like

  • Insulin resistance and related Adipose tissue,
  • Blood pressure and related Disease. His work deals with themes such as Quantitative trait locus, Genetic architecture, Genetic association, Imputation and Minor allele frequency, which intersect with Genome-wide association study. While the research belongs to areas of Single-nucleotide polymorphism, Jaakko Tuomilehto spends his time largely on the problem of Meta-analysis, intersecting his research to questions surrounding Body mass index.
