The prevalence of metabolic syndrome (MetS) in young population continues to rise. Obesity is a chronic inflammatory disorder in which leptin, adiponectin and C reactive protein (CRP) play an important role. This study aimed to determine whether these adipokines are significant markers in defining MetS in pediatric population and to assess the effect of hypocaloric diet and physical activity on serum concentrations of adiponectine, leptin, and high sensitivity CRP (hs-CRP).</p...

Background: The ‘catch-up growth’ phenomenon in children born small for gestational age (SGA) has been linked to early onset obesity with the subsequent emergence of metabolic syndrome (MetS). The intima media thickness of the common carotid artery (CIMT) is a well-known marker of subclinical atherosclerosis.Objective and hypotheses: To determine the association between being born SGA and CIMT, a measure of atherogenesis and to investigate meta...
