Child & Adolescent Obesity

Adolescent obesity is a state where excess body fat negatively affects a child's health or well-being. Due to the rising prevalence of obesity in children and its many adverse health effects, it is being recognized as a serious public health concern. The diagnosis of obesity is often based on BMI, as the methods to determine body fat directly are difficult and costly. The term overweight rather than obese is often used in children as it is less stigmatizing.

Worldwide, childhood obesity inclinations are causing severe public health affairs and in many countries threatening the viability of basic health care delivery. It is an independent risk factor for cardiovascular diseases and significantly increases the risk of morbidity and mortality. The last two decades have witnessed a remarkable increase in medical costs due to obesity and related issues among children and adolescents. Childhood obesity is a global phenomenon affecting all socio-economic groups, irrespective of sex, age or ethnicity.
