Disease Process
Obesity for children and adolescents has increased throughout the years.
Childhood and adolescent obesity can lead to social discrimination, low self-esteem,
and delayed academic and social functioning. Obese and overweight children are at
risk for developing cardiovascular disease, hypertension, hyperlipidemia, type 2
diabetes, asthma, hepatic steatosis, and sleep apnea.
Treatment for childhood and adolescent obesity is imperative to decrease risk for
future health consequences. There needs to be a sufficient family support system in
order to be successful in weight loss. Dietary recommendations for treatment of
pediatric obesity includes: reduction in caloric-dense, nutrient-poor foods, sugarsweetened beverages, sports drinks, and fruit juices. Increasing physical activity is
another treatment for pediatric obesity. At least 60 minutes of moderate-to-vigorous
physical activity a day is recommended for children and adolescents.
