Studies on the prevention of obesity in childhood and puberty.

, : Studies on the prevention of obesity in childhood and puberty.. Shikoku Acta Medica 28(2): 183-209

Body development and energy adjustment from 6 years old were studied in 158 children 10 to 14 years old who were more than 20% overweight with simple obesity in Osaka. In children who had become obese at 10 or 11 years old bodyweight, circumference of chest and Rohrer index were already greater than normal at 6 years old and the difference increased with age. The difference was significant even at 6 years old in those who were more than 30% overweight at 10 to 14 years old.

By means of an appropriate mathematical model (Sager's 2-components-concept) a delayed spontaneous pubertal growth spurt can be demonstrated in girls with 45,X Ullrich-Turner syndrome (UTS) (n1 = 45) as well as in those with 45,X/46,XX mosaic...
