Obesity, children, adolescens, risk factors


The aim of the study was to study the pre- and perinatal risk factors for the development of overweight/obesity in the population of children aged 7 to 17 years.A case-control study was conducted in which 210 students participated. The case group included 84 students with a verified diagnosis of overweight/obesity, and the control group - 126 healthy children with normal weight. The results revealed the following statistically significant risk factors for pre- and perinatal risk factors for overweight/obesity: Short-lived (P-0.037) and large families (P-0.000), low education of mothers (P-0.035), eating disorders during pregnancy (P-0.009), gestational pregnancy (P<0.035), cesarean section (P<0.017) and artificial feeding (P-0,024).Knowledge of pre- and perinatal risk factors is important to achieve targeted prevention of overweight/obesity in children.
