The obese or chubby children look so cute,but is this extra body fat good for their health ?

The excess body fat in children is detrimental for health and these changes persist for a long time to come. In these children not only fat cells are larger but also twice in number compared to lean child..

Does these changes lead to insulin resistance and to development of diabetes,needs long term studies to confirm or refute it. tickle/827572

  • it is generally said that fat people have a shorter life span.

    slightly less than 50 percent of overweight people only becomes diabetic in future according to ada..

    and the mortality rate is lowest in 22-25 bmi range

    but with children it may be difficult to asses.

    good luck
