Brief description This study sets out to establish an N-glycan biomarker profile of suboptimal health in a well-established cohort of adult Australians, the Busselton Healthy Ageing Study (BHAS) and Chinese (SHS cohort) . This biomarker profile will contribute to the future development of N-glycan traits as a tool for (i) risk prediction of chronic disease onset, in particular those chronic conditions that constitute type II diabetes mellitus, and (ii) the prediction of a patient’s response to treatment.
