  1. 1. Overweight and Obesity in Preschool Children : Early Risk Factors and Early Identification

    Detta är en avhandling från Halmstad : Halmstad University Press

    Författare :Annelie Lindholm; Högskolan i Halmstad.; [2019]
    Nyckelord :MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; abdominal adiposity; adiposity rebound; body mass index; childhood obesity; childhood overweight; early growth patterns; infancy peak; preschool children; waist-to-height ratio;

    Sammanfattning : BACKGROUND: Overweight and obesity in children has reached epidemic proportions in recent decades, and even the youngest age groups are affected. Excess weight during childhood often follows the child into adulthood and is associated with diseases such as cardiovascular diseases and type 2 diabetes mellitus. LÄS MER

  2. 2. Dietary Intake, Fatty Acid Biomarkers, and Abdominal Obesity Population-Based Observational Studies

    Detta är en avhandling från Uppsala : Acta Universitatis Upsaliensis

    Författare :Zayed Alsharari; Uppsala universitet.; [2017]
    Nyckelord :MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; abdominal obesity; fatty acid biomarker; dietary intake; Kostvetenskap; Food; Nutrition and Dietetics;

    Sammanfattning : The aim of this thesis was to investigate the associations between fatty acid (FA) biomarkers, carbohydrate intake, and abdominal obesity (AO) and related anthropometric measures in a population-based cohort of men and women in Stockholm County. The overall hypothesis was that dietary fat quality assessed by serum and adipose tissue FA composition, and dietary intake of especially carbohydrates is associated with AO. LÄS MER

  3. 3. Physical activity, cardiovascular fitness and abdominal adiposity in children and adolescents

    Detta är en avhandling från Stockholm : Karolinska Institutet, Biosciences and Nutrition

    Författare :Francisco B Ortega Porcel; Karolinska Institutet.; Karolinska Institutet.; [2008]
    Nyckelord :MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Physical activity; accelerometry; fitness; aerobic capacity; adiposity; waist circumference; children; adolescents;

    Sammanfattning : p>Cardiovascular fitness (CVF) and adiposity, especially abdominal adiposity, are well-known factors associated with general health status in childhood and adolescents. Physical activity (PA) may play a crucial role in CVF enhancement and the prevention of abdominal adiposity accumulation. LÄS MER

  4. 4. Genetic epidemiology of adiposity and abnormal glucose tolerance in South Asian Indians

    Detta är en avhandling från Stockholm : Karolinska Institutet, Dept of Molecular Medicine and Surgery

    Författare :Senthil Kandaswamy Vasan; Karolinska Institutet.; Karolinska Institutet.; [2013]
    Nyckelord :MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES;

    Sammanfattning : Genetic factors play a substantial role in susceptibility to common diseases such as type 2 diabetes (T2DM) and obesity-related disorders. The current investigation was undertaken to examine the association of genetic variants that indirectly affect diabetesrelated traits through their effects on birth weight and adiposity in South Asian Indians.

  5. 5. Physical activity, cardiorespiratory fitness, and abdominal obesity in relation to cardiovascular disease risk epidemiological studies

    Detta är en avhandling från Karolinska Institutet

    Författare :Elin Ekblom Bak; GIH. Gymnastik- och idrottshögskolan; Karolinska Institutet.; Karolinska Institutet.; [2013]
    Nyckelord :MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Medicin Teknik; Medicine Technology;

    Sammanfattning : Although Sweden saw a decline in death rates related to cardiovascular disease (CVD) between 1987 and 2011, it is still the most common cause of death for both women and men. Lifestyle-related factors such as inadequate physical activity (PA), poor cardiorespiratory fitness (CF), and excess body fat are all recognised as important predictors of CVD morbidity and mortality.
