The prevalence of non-alcoholic fatty liver disease (NAFLD) in children is increasing. This study evaluated the efficacy of a dietitian-led lifestyle modification programme (D-LMP) to reduce NAFLD in obese adolescents. Subjects with intra-hepatic triglyceride content (IHTC) equal to or greater than 5% diagnosed by proton-magnetic resonance spectroscopy (1H-MRS) were enroled and randomly assigned to either the D-LMP intervention or conventional paediatrician-led consultation (P-CON) group. Subjec...

Short-term breastfeeding from mothers with gestational diabetes (GDM) may programme metabolism and increase offspring diabetes risk. We examined the association of in utero GDM exposure with adiposity from infancy to adolescence, and whether any association was modified by breastfeeding during early infancy. In the prospective Chinese birth cohort “Children of 1997” (n = 7342, 88% follow-up rate), generalised estimate equations with multiple imputation were used to assess associations of in uter...

Abstract Background and objectives In utero exposure to dioxins and related compounds have been associated with adverse neurocognitive development in infants. It is unclear whether neurodevelopmental deficits persist to childhood. We assessed the association of prenatal dioxin exposure with neurocognitive function in 11-year-old children, and to test whether the association is modified by duration of breastfeeding. Methods In this prospective study of 161 children born in Hong Kong in 2002, pren...

Objective Resting heart rate (RHR) is increasingly recognised as a prognostic marker for long term cardiovascular outcomes in adults. This study assessed associations of RHR with blood pressure (BP), anthropometry and exercise in a large representative sample of Hong Kong children. Study design, setting and subjects A territory-wide growth survey carried out in 2005–2006 included students sampled from each of Hong Kong9s 18 districts. RHR and BP were measured by validated oscillometric BP device...

Body mass index (BMI) is commonly used for assessing body fat. Self-reported body weight and height derived BMI (SRDBMI) is a simple, low cost and non-invasive assessment tool and it may be a useful self-reported assessment tool to monitor the prevalence of overweight/obesity in community settings and for epidemiological research. We assessed the agreement of BW and BH between assessor measured and child self-reported values and evaluated the diagnostic ability of SRDBMI to identify children wit...

a b s t r a c t RIX4414 (RotarixTM), has shown high efficacy during the first 2-years of life. A 2-year randomized, double-blind, placebo-controlled trial in Singapore, Hong Kong, and Taiwan was extended for another year. Infants (6-17 weeks) received 2-doses (1-2 months apart) of RIX4414 (n = 5359) or placebo (n = 5349). During the third-year follow-up, 4359 (RIX4414) and 4328 (placebo) infants were moni- tored. 64 (1.2%) and 2 (0.04%) infants in the placebo and RIX4414 groups, respectively, re...
