Childhood Obesity and Effects

Childhood obesity is a serious therapeutic condition that is affecting children and adolescents.  Children at or above the 95th percentile have obesity.  Many obese children become obese adults, especially if one or both parents are obese. The early physical impacts of obesity in adolescence incorporate, the greater part of the child’s organs being influenced, hepatitis, sleep apnoea, gallstones and increased intracranial pressure. Childhood obesity can also results in severe conditions including diabetes, high blood pressure, heart disease, sleep problems, cancer, and other disorders like liver disease, early puberty or menarche, eating disorders such as anorexia and bulimia, skin infections, and asthma and other respiratory problems. Childhood obesity is prevented by choosing healthier foods and limiting unhealthy foods. Physical activity is also very important for reducing childhood obesity.
