Study to Identify Infants at High Risk for Developing Obesity
Date:3/15/2010

al birth weight. The question is what other factors are present at birth that may be predictive of childhood-onset obesity?”

In the past, an accurate measurement system to evaluate adiposity (obesity) was not available. At the same time, researchers knew understanding the infant growth period was crucial to early detection of childhood and adult diseases. Now that a device exists that can provide a numerical value of early growth patterns, doctors are excited to begin exploring the relationship between birth factors and the risk of developing obesity.

“We know a variety of factors, for both the mother and the baby, contribute to being at risk,” says Josefson. “Through this observational study, and having a number to start from, we can follow a child over time and decide if an intervention should be made in the first year of life.” Josefson is currently recruiting pregnant women, both healthy weight and obese. She will also be evaluating metabolic biomarkers in maternal and cord blood to look for a correlation between these markers and newborn body fat.
