Itoh Ikuyo , Nakajima Hisakazu , Kodo Kazuki , Sugimoto Satoru , Kosaka Kitaro , Hosoi Hajime

Background: Recently, ghrelin has attracted attention as a hormone connected with appetite. The relationship between ghrelin genetic polymorphisms and obesity has been analyzed in adults, but the influence of these SNPs on obesity in children is uncertain.Objective: We perform SNP analysis of the ghrelin gene and examine its relationship with the childhood obesity.Population: We analyzed 35 patients (27 boys, eight girls) treated i...

Background: Metabolic syndrome (MS) is increasingly reported in obese children. So far, MS evaluations were performed for children at the age of 10 and over.Objective and hypotheses: Our aim is to evaluate the prevalence of MS and insulin resistance (IR) in obese children between 3 and 9 years old according to modifying National Cholesterol Education Program Adult Treatment Panel-III (NCEP-III) and International Diabetes Federation (IDF) criteria.<p ...

The Relation of Serum Leptin and Soluble Leptin Receptor Levels with Metabolic and Clinical Parameters in Obese and Healthy Children

Catli Gonul , Anik Ahmet , Tuhan Hale Unver , Kume Tuncay , Bober Ece , Abaci Ayhan

Background: In blood, leptin is suggested to circulate both in the free form as well as bound to soluble leptin receptor (sLR) and possibly also to other as yet unidentified binding protein. However, the role of the sLR in the regulation of the physiological function of leptin is until now unclear.Objective and hypotheses: We aimed to investigate the relation of serum leptin and sLR levels with metabolic and anthropometric parameters in obese and healthy...

Prevalence Metabolic Syndrome and Its Components Among Children with Obesity

Latyshev Oleg , Kiseleva Elena , Okminyan Goar , Samsonova Lubov , Kolomina Irina

Background and aims: To study the prevalence of metabolic syndrome and its components (impaired fasting and after overload glucose, type 2 diabetes mellitus, low cholesterol HDL, and high triglycerides) in children with obesity.Methods: This research includes 550 (65.8% boys) children, recruited from Pediatric Endocrinology Department, with abdominal obesity. We measured BMI, waist circumference, blood pressure with standard instrumentation and glucose (...

Serum Omentin-1 and Vaspin Levels in Obese Children and Their Correlation with Lipid Metabolism

Chen Hong-Shan , Xu Ling-Ling , Zhu Shun-Ye , Pan Si-Nian , Du Min-lian , Su Zhe

Objective: To investigate the serum levels of omentin-1 and vaspin in obese children and their correlation with lipid metabolism.Methods: Fifty-nine children participated in the study, among the 59 subjects, 30 of were obese [(9.43±2.02) years old] and 29 were non-obese controls [(10.3±2.2) years old], there was no statistical difference in age between the two groups. Serum levels of omentin-1 and vaspin were measured by ELISA method.The concen...

The Importance of Weight for Height for Prediction of Metabolic Syndrome in Obese Children and Adolescents: Impact of Gender and Pubertal Status

Ozhan Bayram , Ersoy Betul , Kiremitci Seniha

Background: We aimed to assess whether or not anthropometric indices such as weight circumference (WC), waist/hip ratio (WHR), waist-height ratio (WHtR), and weight for height (W/H) are predictors for metabolic syndrome (MetS) among obese children and adolescents. We aimed to describe effects of gender and pubertal status on these anthropometric indices.Method: A total of 291 obese children and adolescents (160 girls and 131 boys, age range: 6–16 ye...
