Diabetes, Obesity & Stroke in Children

Childhood obesity is the most prevalent nutritional disorder among children and adolescents worldwide. Overweight and obese children are more likely to stay obese into adulthood and to develop noncommunicable diseases (NCDs) like diabetes and cardiovascular diseases at a younger age. Having diabetes or pre-diabetes puts one at increased risk for heart disease and stroke. Childhood obesity is associated with a higher chance of premature death & disability in adulthood. One can lower its risk by keeping the blood glucose (also called blood sugar), blood pressure, and blood cholesterol close to the recommended target numbers—the levels suggested by diabetes experts for good health. Stroke and coronary heart disease can be caused by the same problem – atherosclerosis. For most NCDs resulting from obesity, the risks depend partly on the age of onset and on the duration of obesity. The prevalence of obesity is highest among specific ethnic groups. Obesity increases the risk of heart diseases in children and adults. Childhood obesity predisposes the individual to insulin resistance and type 2 diabetes, hypertension, hyperlipidemia, liver and kidney diseases and causes reproductive dysfunction in adults.
