The child will complete computerized tasks and paper-pencil test, and will be presented with symbols, letters, or numbers on a computer screen and asked to respond by pressing a button on the computer. Before each task a researcher will explain the instructions of the task and assess if the child needs a break before completing the next task. While the child is completing computerized tasks, the parent/guardian will be asked to fill out paper-pencil questionnaires about the child and to sign a release of medical information form so that we can study how physical markers of health effect cognition.
Since severe obesity in youth has been steadily increasing. Specialized pediatric obesity clinics provide programs to aid in reducing obesity. Since the home environment and parental behavioral modeling are two of the strongest predictors of child weight loss during behavioral weight loss interventions, a family-based treatment approach is best. This strategy has been moderately successful in our existing, evidence-based pediatric weight management program, Brenner Families In Training (Brenner FIT). However, since programs such as Brenner Families in Training rely on face-to-face interactions and delivery, they are sometimes by the time constraints experienced by families. Therefore, the purpose of this study is to develop and pilot a tailored, mobile health component to potentially increase the benefits seen by Brenner FIT standard program components and similar pediatric weight management programs.
This is a study to learn about obesity and how insulin resistance and Type 2 Diabetes develops in children.
Sugar-sweetened beverages and over consumption of 100% fruit juice add unneeded calories to the diets of children, potentially leading to overweight. As children's diets are extensions of their parent's behaviors, the investigators propose to implement a nutrition education intervention based on the Information-Motivation-Behavioral Skills (IMB) behavior change model using parents as the primary agent of change. This project will evaluate an intervention to reduce sugar-sweetened beverages in preschool children from low-resource families. The proposed research uses a randomized control group design involving 20 parents of 3-5-year-old children at 20 sites (n=400) over 3 years. The investigators will randomly assign sites to two experimental conditions: 1) 10-week sugar-sweetened beverage intervention and 2) 10-week sham education control. Data collection for the two groups will be conducted at baseline and 1 weeks and 6 months post intervention. Measures to be collected include and IMB survey, home beverage inventory (HBI), weekend food recall, and anthropometrics. Education programs will be available to all parents at sites through interactive display boards with 5-10-minute lessons. Each semester 8 students (n=32) will enroll in an experiential course aimed at increasing students' cultural competency. For 10 weeks, students will attend classroom training and spend 2 hours twice a week at sites implementing the nutrition education program.
The investigators propose a randomized controlled trial in 90 children (age 13-21y) with obesity and either PD or T2D recruited from clinical programs at the Children's Hospital Los Angeles (CHLA). Patients will be randomized to one of three treatment groups for a 12-week intervention: Group 1) Low sugar and carbohydrate diet (LSC, <90 gm carbohydrate (CHO)/day, <25 gm added sugar/day) + blinded CGM (used to monitor adherence and glycemic outcomes without real time feedback). Group 2) LSC+TLE (16-hour fast/8-hour feed for 3 days per week) + blinded CGM, Group 3) LSC+TLE+ real time feedback via CGM (to evaluate effect of providing CGM data on intervention efficacy).
This study will examine the mediator/moderator variables of family composition, food insecurity, adversity and emotion regulation for effects on parent stress, parenting, health behaviors and child obesity risk.
Clinical intervention trial for pediatric obese patients in Mexico city. Individual will be included to a 6 week trial of nutritional, physical activity, psicological and educational intervention. Anthropometric measurments, blood tests and food 24-hour recolection will be measured. Physical activity and gait monitoring will be assesed during a repeated 6-min walk test in every visit. Follow up visits will be scheduled after intevention at 3 and 6 months.
The primary purpose of the BOUNCE study is to assess the effectiveness of a four-week family-based healthy lifestyle summer program in reducing adiposity indicators in Hispanic and African American girls and boys (ages 9-14 years old).
This study is being conducted to assess weight loss efficacy, as determined by changes in body mass index (BMI), and safety of VI-0521 (Qsymia®) or placebo, taken for 56 weeks accompanied by a lifestyle modification program in obese adolescents age 12-16 years.
Girls with obesity and polycystic ovarian syndrome will receive either glucagon like peptide-1 receptor agonist therapy or a dietary intervention for 12 weeks to decrease the metabolic syndrome, in particular to lower hepatic fat and improve insulin sensitivity.
