Can't chalk it up to 'baby fat'

not only a childhood of increased health problems, but also what now often becomes an ongoing battle through adulthood with life-long issues."

The researchers, which included an investigator from the Harvard Medical School, the Harvard School of Public Health, and Brigham and Women's Hospital in Boston, also found that although the percentage of patients whose condition was diagnosed increased steadily over the study period until 2005, the diagnosis rate plateaued in 2006 and 2007, implying the impact of publicity regarding weight problems may be reaching its peak. And despite adding an abnormal BMI flag in the EMR system from 2004-2007, there was no evidence of increased diagnosis in that time period.

"While early and accurate diagnosis of pediatric weight issues is an essential first step in identifying the problem, we must also look at possible solutions," says Dr. Kaelber. "For example, as the role of EMR grows, new methods such as automatic electronic alerts being sent to pediatricians and parents about a child's weight status and automatic referrals to special pediatric weight-management programs are some innovative ideas in using technology to help improve our children's health."
