Pediatric Obesity

Pediatric obesity is a medical condition characterized by an excess accumulation of body fat in children and adolescents. It is a significant public health concern and is often associated with a range of adverse health effects.

Children with obesity are at a higher risk of developing various health problems, including type 2 diabetes, high blood pressure, heart disease, sleep apnea, joint issues, and psychological concerns like low self-esteem and depression. Childhood obesity is often influenced by a combination of genetic, environmental, and lifestyle factors, such as poor diet and lack of physical activity.

Prevention and management of pediatric obesity typically involve a multidisciplinary approach. Healthcare professionals, including pediatricians, dietitians, and physical therapists, work together to assess the child's overall health, provide nutritional guidance, encourage physical activity, and address any underlying medical or psychological factors. Family involvement is essential in supporting healthy lifestyle changes and ensuring long-term success in managing pediatric obesity.
