What are common treatments for pediatric obesity?

Add answer

These interventions are commonly used in pediatric obesity treatment. However, most of clinicians' confidence in managing pediatric obesity does not cover a wide spectrum of these specific, non-pharmacologic pediatric obesity treatment strategies. Physicians are poorly equipped to use a variety of evidence based practices.

Unverified Answer

Can pediatric obesity be cured?

Add answer

Obesity can be cured in a subset of children with a low metabolic and psychosocial risk factor profile. Results from a recent clinical trial will help identify pediatric obesity patient characteristics for research and clinical endeavors aimed at altering or limiting obesity.

Unverified Answer

What are the signs of pediatric obesity?

Add answer

Signs of obesity can be evaluated using BMI percentiles as a reference and can include excessive daytime sleepiness, nocturnal hypoxaemia, and excessive exercise and weight. These

Unverified Answer

What is acute moderate to vigorous exercise performed at a specific moment of the day?

Add answer

A specific type of exercise should be incorporated into interventions to prevent weight gain in children and adolescents because of its short duration and ease of implementation in school.

Unverified Answer

Who should consider clinical trials for pediatric obesity?

Add answer

Patients who are obese are more likely to undergo bariatric surgery and have worse long-term morbidity. However, they are less likely to seek clinical trials for weight maintenance. They are less likely than nonobese patients to consider participation in a trial by themselves. In particular, girls are more likely than boys to feel uncomfortable in their family physician's office. Patients may benefit from education about clinical trials for weight maintenance and referral by their family doctor who works with them to address concerns. Patients may also wish to participate in a clinical trial to assess the long-term safety and efficacy of a weight maintenance program.

Unverified Answer

Does pediatric obesity run in families?

Add answer

Families with a history of obesity are at increased risk for diabetes. Families with overweight children seem to have a slightly increased risk for diabetes compared with their non-obese peers, but this might be better explained by their BMI category. We show that this risk is clearly linked with certain genetic factors.

Unverified Answer

What does acute moderate to vigorous exercise performed at a specific moment of the day usually treat?

Add answer

This trial has shown that [brief interval] moderate or vigorous exercise could result in reductions in the blood pressure of healthy young volunteers, when performed in the period of a day, without affecting the mood and the degree of motivation.

Unverified Answer

What is the latest research for pediatric obesity?

Add answer

Pediatric obesity remains a growing concern with more of U.S. children, adolescents, and adults affected by the condition than ever before. However, most of the recent studies concerning pediatric obesity and children's health have yet to be of the highest validity and scientific rigor. To better understand the association between childhood obesity and health problems, future pediatric obesity research should not only examine the clinical manifestations, but also the role of family and sociodemographic factors on this link. Also, future studies on children's health should examine the relation between childhood obesity and the timing of presentation and diagnosis of obesity-related diseases as well.

Unverified Answer

How serious can pediatric obesity be?

Add answer

There were several differences between obese African American compared to European American girls that might suggest why obesity is more severe in African American children. African American girls were more likely than European American girls to be obese with a BMI Z-score>2.5, suggesting that these girls tend to be at higher health risk.
