Childhood Obesity Treatment
Childhood obesity carries heavy psychological consequences. Recent research published in The New England Journal of Medicine shows that the damage goes beyond the social and emotional, too.
This study revealed that severe obesity in children and teens increases the risks for high blood pressure, high cholesterol and high blood sugar levels.
Weight problems in children involve many aspects and family eating and exercise habits have a very strong influence on weight gain during childhood. Sometimes this influence can be stronger than the genetic predisposition to being overweight. The quantity and quality of food available at home can lead to uncontrolled weight gain in kids.
Eating at fast food restaurants more than once a week and home snacking habits can also cause children to gain weight. With such an emphasis on screen time, it’s no surprise that a sedentary lifestyle means they’re not out playing as much as we might have been – less physical activity and poor food choices can easily lead to weight gain.
The good news is that we can do something about this! Weight loss interventions work very well in younger patients and together we can create a nutrition plan that suits your family and your child.
