Insulin resistance in childhood obesity caprio
title Insulin resistance in children: Consensus, perspective, and future directions , abstract Objective: Emerging data indicate that insulin resistance is common among children and adolescents and is related to cardiometabolic risk, therefore requiring consideration early in life.Dec 01, 2008 Given the strong association between obesity, insulin resistance and the development of metabolic syndrome and cardiovascular disease, prevention and treatment of childhood obesity appear to be essential to prevent the development of insulin resistance and the associated complications.

Sep 08, 2010 Insulin resistance is most commonly associated with obesity, although not all obese people are insulin resistant and insulin resistance may occur in nonobese children and adults (5, 6, 7). Insulin resistance can also occur during normal physiological conditions, such as Rates of obesity and insulin resistance have climbed sharply over the past 30 years. These epidemics are temporally related to a dramatic rise in consumption of fast food; until recently, it was not known whether the fast food was driving the obesity, or vice versa.insulin resistance in childhood obesity caprio Previously, we reported that rising alanine transaminase levels in obese children and adolescents were associated with deterioration in insulin sensitivity and glucose tolerance. 29 x 29 Burgert, T.
