Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Internal medicine
  • Gene
  • Cancer

Thorkild I. A. Sørensen mostly deals with Body mass index, Obesity, Internal medicine, Endocrinology and Genetics. His research in Body mass index intersects with topics in Weight gain, Pregnancy, Birth weight and Pediatrics. He combines subjects such as Epidemiology and Cohort study with his study of Pediatrics.

His primary area of study in Obesity is in the field of Overweight. His work in the fields of Cirrhosis overlaps with other areas such as Uncoupling protein. As a part of the same scientific family, Thorkild I. A. Sørensen mostly works in the field of Endocrinology, focusing on Odds ratio and, on occasion, vitamin D deficiency.

His most cited work include:

  • Trends in adult body-mass index in 200 countries from 1975 to 2014: A pooled analysis of 1698 population-based measurement studies with 19.2 million participants (2278 citations)
  • 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)
  • Childhood body-mass index and the risk of coronary heart disease in adulthood (1263 citations)

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

Body mass index, Obesity, Internal medicine, Endocrinology and Cohort study are his primary areas of study. His research in Body mass index is mostly focused on Overweight. Thorkild I. A. Sørensen has included themes like Odds ratio and Young adult in his Overweight study.

His Obesity research incorporates elements of Genetics, Gerontology and Environmental health. His Internal medicine research is multidisciplinary, relying on both Gastroenterology and Type 2 diabetes. Thorkild I. A. Sørensen has researched Cohort study in several fields, including Epidemiology, Hazard ratio, Prospective cohort study, Cohort and Risk factor.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Body mass index (47.90%)
  • Obesity (40.71%)
  • Internal medicine (38.72%)

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

  • Body mass index (47.90%)
  • Obesity (40.71%)
  • Overweight (19.80%)

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

His primary areas of study are Body mass index, Obesity, Overweight, Pregnancy and Internal medicine. His Body mass index research includes themes of Birth weight, Cohort study, Young adult, Weight gain and Hazard ratio. The Cohort study study combines topics in areas such as Epidemiology and Pediatrics.

His study in Obesity is interdisciplinary in nature, drawing from both Gerontology and Cohort. Thorkild I. A. Sørensen interconnects Odds ratio and Breastfeeding in the investigation of issues within Overweight. His research in Internal medicine focuses on subjects like Endocrinology, which are connected to Single-nucleotide polymorphism.

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)
  • Genome-wide physical activity interactions in adiposity. A meta-analysis of 200,452 adults (211 citations)
