Accumulating evidence links dietary intake to inflammatory processes involved in non-communicable disease (NCD) development. The dietary inflammatory index (DII) designed by Shivappa et al. has been shown to capture the inflammatory potential of dietary behavior in a large number of epidemiological studies. Thus, the DII may serve as future tool to assess someone's nutritional inflammatory capacities and hence, the individual risks for NCD development later in life. The calculation method of the DII, however, can benefit from alternative mathematical steps, particularly regarding the transformation from standardized daily food consumption to percentile scores. Here, we provide novel approaches, the scaling-formula (SF) and scaling-formula with outlier detection (SFOD) methods, with the aim to optimize the DII calculation method proposed by Shivappa and colleagues. We illustrate on simulated data specific limitations of the original DII calculation and show the benefits of the SF/SFOD by using simulated data and data from the prospective TEENDIAB study cohort, which supports the application of SF/SFOD in future epidemiological and clinical studies.
