Tea consumption and risk of type 2 diabetes mellitus: a systematic review and meta-analysis update.

Yang J, Mao QX, Xu HX, Ma X, Zeng CY - BMJ Open (2014)

Bottom Line: Tea consumption of ≥3 cups/day was associated with decreased T2DM risk in women (RR 0.84, 95% CI 0.71 to 1.00).No obvious change was found in sensitivity analyses.The results suggest that daily tea consumption (≥3 cups/day) is associated with a lower T2DM risk.

Begg's funnel plot of publication bias test. Log RR means the nature logarithm of RR (relative risk). Horizontal line means the summary estimate, while the sloping lines mean the expected 95% CI.

BMJOPEN2014005632F6: Begg's funnel plot of publication bias test. Log RR means the nature logarithm of RR (relative risk). Horizontal line means the summary estimate, while the sloping lines mean the expected 95% CI.

Mentions: Potential publication bias was estimated by Funnel plot (Begg’s test) and Egger's linear regression (p<0.001, figure 6). Sensitivity analyses were performed to explore the potential heterogeneity. After omitting those studies that mentioned clearly either green tea or oolong tea, no significant heterogeneity between the remaining studies was found (Pheterogeneity=0.058, I2=26.3%). At the same time, potential publication bias also decreased slightly (p=0.002). The pooling RRs (95% CIs) were not modified obviously (RR 0.99, 95% CI 0.96 to 1.02, p=0.495).
