Childhood Obesity and Effects

Obesity associated factors that occur more frequently in children and adolescents, adults. In  this regard adverse effects of obesity in children and adolescents have attempted to outline areas for future research. Obesity referred  as body mass index, greater than the 95th percentile for children of the same age and gender. It  affects one in five children globally. Discrimination against overweight children begins early in childhood and becomes progressively institutionalized. Because obese children tend to be taller than their nonoverweight peers, they are apt to be viewed as more mature.  In  the inappropriate expectations that result may have an adverse effect on their socialization. Many of the Cardiovascular consequences that characterize adult onset of obesity are preceded by abnormalities that begin in childhood.  Hyper lipidemia, hypertension, and abnormal glucose tolerance occur with increased frequency in obese children and adolescents. The relationship of cardiac risk factors to visceral organs in body are independent of total body weight, fat remains unclear. Some of the complications like Sleep apnea, Pseudotumor cerebri, Behavioral & Environmental Factors,Insomnia and Blount's disease represent major sources of morbidity for which rapid and sustained weight reduction is necessary. Although several periods of increased risk appear in childhood, it is not clear whether obesity with onset early in childhood carries the risk of adult morbidity and mortality.
