Moscow Keywords: obesity, children, body length, body mass index Objective: To study the relationship between anthropometric data at birth and the course of obesity in school-age children. Materials and methods: A retrospective analysis of developmental histories of 28 (9 girls) full-term children aged 10 to 15 years with obesity (SDS BMI> 2.0), average age 12.2 ± 1.9 years, was carried out. Estimated body weight and body length at birth. Content of cholesterol, β-lipoproteins, high density lipoproteins (HDL), low density lipoproteins (LDL), triglycerides (TG), glucose. To assess the relationship of factors, the Pearson correlation coefficient (r) was used, the values 0 - 0, 29 - very weak; 0.3-0.699 - average; 0.7-1 - strong correlation. Results. The average length at birth of children in the studied group was 55.0 ± 1.7 cm. An inverse correlation relationship was established between body length at birth and SDS BMI (r = - 0.395). Significant correlations between body length at birth and blood glucose level (r = - 0,070), triglycerides (r = - 0, 050), HDL (r = - 0, 204), LDL (r = - 0.204), systolic (r = 0, 010) and diastolic (r = 0, 070) pressure was not detected. The average value of body mass index at birth was 3873.3 ± 481.8 grams. An inverse correlation was established between the mass at birth and carbohydrate metabolism indices: the level of triglycerides (r = - 0,441) and LDL (r = - 0,323). In addition, an inverse correlation was found between the birth weight by systolic (r = - 0,402) and diastolic (r = - 0,456) pressure. Significant correlation with other studied factors were not revealed findings The influence of the child's body length at birth on SDS BMI in children with obesity has been established: the shorter the body length at birth, the greater the value of the SDS BMI index in the development of obesity at school age The baby's mass at birth has an impact on fat metabolism and blood pressure; the lower the birth weight, the higher the level of systolic and diastolic pressure, triglycerides and LDL cholesterol in the development of obesity at school age
