Abstract

The Healthy Eating Index-2015 (HEI-2015) measures the adherence to the 2015 Dietary Guidelines for Americans in the US. We assessed the association between overall diet quality, as measured by the HEI-2015, and diabetes status using data from the National Health and Nutrition Examination Survey (NHANES) 2007-2014. Although participants with diabetes had significantly different scores in several HEI-2015 components when compared to those without diabetes, there was no association between total HEI-2015 score and diabetes status in this nationally representative sample. Future studies are needed to evaluate the HEI-diabetes association in longitudinal settings and to address measurement errors in diet.
