We calculated population attributable fractions with 95% CIs to assess the proportion of secondary outcomes that could be prevented if inadequate or excess weight gain (according to the 2009 Institute of Medicine guidelines) were removed by health care provider.
Conclusion: Since fetal macrosomia is a real public health problem because of its strong association with infant morbidity and mortality, such a detailed study of children born with excess weight would make it possible to detect the most important factors in order to improve their health.
Although Hispanic/Latino populations have some of the highest rates of obesity in the United States, little is known about their loss of control (LOC) eating, a robust predictor of excess weight gain.
The following 10 themes were identified: contemptuous, patronizing, and disrespectful treatment, lack of training, ambivalence, attribution of all health issues to excess weight, assumptions about weight gain, barriers to health care utilization, expectation of differential health care treatment, low trust and poor communication, avoidance or delay of health services, and ‘doctor shopping’.
Particularly in children in the lowest birth size decile, high excess weight gain was associated with higher sitting SBP values compared to children with low weight gain rates adjusted for length gain rates.
Follow-up was in the form of recording of postprocedure symptoms, complications, and the effect of the procedure on weight loss after 6 months and at 1 year in the form of percentage excess weight loss and percentage excess BMI loss.
Perceived health status and HRQL were assessed using parent-reported Kidscreen-10 scores, with excess weight being defined on the basis of body mass index (BMI) using the WHO reference tables ( z -BMI > 1 standard deviation), and abdominal obesity being defined on the basis of waist circumference (percentile ≥ 90) using the tables proposed by Fernández et al.
The primary endpoint of this study was a joint hypothesis during the 36-month follow-up: the first primary outcome pertained to the frequency of patients with an excess weight loss (EWL) greater than 50% (% EWL>50%) after LSG or RYGB; the second primary outcome was defined as a composite endpoint of at least one major complication.
Furthermore, it confers an important message for public health: among individuals who are overweight or obese, losing weight—even if reductions are small and regardless of age or the degree of excess weight— is beneficial for cancer risk.
With the majority of patients seen by primary care practitioners suffering from overweight or obesity, an additional certification in obesity medicine provides the critical tools and skillset to expertly address the many chronic health conditions predicated by unhealthy adiposity and excess weight.
To address this issue, the present research uses data from Wave IV of The National Longitudinal Study of Adolescent to Adult Health (N = 4,769, mean age = 29) to examine whether sex moderated the association between excess weight and working memory.
Objectives In this study, we evaluated the association between the MC4R gene and both excess weight loss percentage (EWL%) and excess BMI loss percentage (EBMIL%) in a cohort of bariatric surgery patients after 6 and 12 months from surgery.
Comparing individuals of varying weight statuses on their identification and regulation of emotions may increase our understanding of mechanisms that drive excess weight gain and highlight more precise weight regulation targets.
