Abstract [en]

Background: Conflicting results have been reported regarding the association between consumption of milk and dairy products and the risk for development of rheumatoid arthritis (RA).

Objectives: The aim of this study was to investigate the association between consumption of milk and dairy products and the development of RA in a large population-based cohort of women.

Methods: In a prospective cohort study 35,600 women aged 48-83 years, from the Swedish Mammography Cohort (SMC), were followed between 2003 and 2015. Consumption of dairy products was assessed in 1997 at a mean age of mean age of 61.5 years (SD 9.1 years) with a 96-item self-administered questionnaire. The risk (hazard ratio; HR) of RA development associated with consumption of dairy products was estimated using Cox proportional hazard regression models with adjustment for age, alcohol intake, smoking, energy intake, meat and fish consumption.

Results: During the follow-up of 12 years, 368 individuals were identified with a new diagnosis of RA. Comparing high consumption with low consumption of dairy products, no association between consumption of dairy products and the development of RA was observed: HR for the fully adjusted model=1.12 (95% CI: 0.78-1.59 (Table 1). Also when evaluating milk and cheese consumption separately, no association with the risk of RA was observed: HR for the highest milk consumption=1.10 (95% CI: 0.82-1.44) and highest cheese consumption HR=1.20 (95% CI: 0.81-1.79), compared with low consumption (fully adjusted models, table 1).

Conclusion: In this large population-based cohort study, consumption of dairy products was not associated with risk to develop RA.
