1. Children with obesity were at greater risk of mortality in early adulthood than a population-based comparison group, suggesting that risks begin earlier than later adulthood. 2. Deaths due to suicide and self-injury are also common in this group, warranting clinical consideration at a primary care level. Evidence Rating Level: 2 (Good) The impacts...

1. In this study of family-based intervention for childhood obesity, a specialized intervention incorporating social facilitation and behavioral skills was associated with improved weight loss results compared to education alone. 2. Interventions implemented at a greater frequency and number were associated with improved weight loss compared to less frequent sessions. Evidence...
1. In patients with coronary artery disease (CAD), increased body-weight variability demonstrated a graded increased risk of cardiovascular events and death. 2. The association of increased cardiovascular events and mortality was higher in obese or overweight patients compared to those with normal weight. Evidence Rating Level: 2 (Good)        Study Rundown: Many patients...
1. Maximum BMIs in overweight, obese, and obese II categories were associated with increases in risk for all-cause mortality. 2. This relationship between BMI and death was maintained regardless of smoking status, sex, and age. Evidence Rating Level: 2 (Good) Study Rundown: The relationship between optimal body mass index (BMI) and all-cause...
1. All racial/ethnic minority groups evaluated, compared with Caucasian patients, had a statistically higher prevalence of metabolic abnormality but normal body weight (MAN). 2. Using BMI as a method of screening for increased cardiometabolic risk may leave out a significant proportion of vulnerable patients. Evidence Rating Level: Good (2) Study Rundown: Body...
1. After 56 weeks of a weight maintenance intervention program, researchers found that mean weight regain in the intervention group (0.75 kg) was lower than in the usual care group (2.36 kg) by a statistically significant amount. 2. This study suggests that a weight maintenance intervention program could help patients...
1. Among 2.3 million individuals (42.3 million patient years of follow-up), in those who had a BMI in the mid-normal range (50th to 74th percentile) at seventeen years of age, the rate of fatal cardiovascular events in adulthood demonstrated a significant increase compared to the 5th to 24th percentiles...
1. Daily intake of artificially sweetened beverages (ASB) during pregnancy was linked to increased infant body mass index (BMI) at 1 year of age and an overall increased risk of infant being overweight. 2. This difference remained after adjusting for potential confounders, such as maternal BMI, caloric intake, smoking, diabetes,...
1. In a group of young-adults (18-35 year olds) with a BMI between 21 and 30, self-regulation strategies with small corrective changes in diet and activity, with or without an initial weight loss strategy, led to reduced long-term weight gain compared to a control group. 2. The study shows that meticulously...
