The aim of the present study is to compare the effect of an exercise performed 180 or 30 minutes before lunch on the energy intake of adolescents with obesity.
This randomized controlled trial compared changes in Mexican-American, adolescent standardized body mass index (zBMI) from a school-based obesity intervention given zero, one, three, or five days a week.
The purpose of this study is to see if educational videos about how to help children develop healthy behaviors, paired with treatment in a pediatric obesity clinic, can increase caregiver confidence and improve child behaviors and weight. Caregivers of children between the ages of 4 and 11 years old who are new patients to a pediatric obesity clinic will be invited to take part in the study. All families will receive the standard treatment provided in the pediatric obesity clinic. Half of the caregivers will be assigned to also watch a few educational videos every month for 3 months in between clinic visits.
Mariposa Community Health Center, a health center in Nogales, Arizona on the US-Mexico border, will provide a program to prevent obesity in children and create a community environment that supports a healthy lifestyle. Mariposa designed and implemented the La Vida Buena ("The Good Life") program and already know that helps families eat more healthily and exercise. Mariposa Community Health Center will test this program on younger children aged 5-8 years old. Providers will refer children who are overweight or obese to the La Vida Buena Program. In order to determine if the La Vida Buena program works, Mariposa Community Health center will implement the 8-week program with 100 overweight or obese children in their Nogales clinic. They will measure their weight (BMI), exercise levels and food habits at the beginning of the program and then 3- months and 6-months after the program ends. Mariposa will compare these results to children in the nearby Rio Rico clinic who do not receive the La Vida Buena program. These 100 overweight or obese children in Rio Rico will instead receive one educational session, and the same information will be collected regarding BMI, exercise level and food habits. After the 6-month period, the children from Rio Rico will be able to receive the full La Vida Buena program.
In this study, the investigators assess the safety and efficacy of endoscopic sleeve gastroplasty in adolescents with obesity.
Recent studies indicate that obese teenagers exhibit memory disturbances. Adolescence represents a crucial period in the development of the hippocampus and the amygdala, necessary for the implementation of memory and emotional functions for the rest of life. Disturbances of the interaction between amygdala and hippocampus during adolescence have been associated with the development of neuropsychiatric disorders. However, the impact of juvenile obesity on functional amygdala-hippocampus connectivity has not been evaluated yet. The main objective of this study is to compare the emotional memory performance and the level of functional connectivity between the hippocampus and the amygdala during the realization of an emotional associative memory task, in obese and control adolescents.
The objective of this study was to investigate the association of irisin with inflammatory markers as well with metabolic and anthropometric parameters in children and adolescents with type 2 diabetes mellitus compared with healthy controls.
This study assesses the associations between genetic factors, food-cue-related neural reactivity, self-regulatory capacity, eating in the absence of hunger (EAH), and adiposity gain in children.
In Helsinki BIrth Cohort 2018-2020 a large, longitudinal and well-phenotyped birth cohort of infants and their parents will be established. All the children born in Helsinki Women's Hospital and Espoo hospital (15 000 annual deliveries), their mothers and fathers will be recruited in the study. Data on maternal and paternal diet quality, physical activity and depression during pregnancy will be collected. Newborn body composition will be measured and registry data will be collected. Health of offspring will be followed during their later life.
Recruitment of obese children, classification according to sleep questionnaire and randomization in two groups to perform nutritional and sleep intervention. . One group receives dietary intervention through recommendations. A group receives dietary and sleep intervention through recommendations. An analysis of the melatonin profile and metabolic and inflammatory status is performed by biochemistry at the beginning and end of the intervention. Determine if the intervention has improved the health of obese children.
