Introduction Being born large for gestational age (LGA) is a risk factor for development of metabolic syndrome (MS) in adolescents and adults. Objective To evaluate prepubertal children born idiopathic LGA to non-obese mothers without gestational diabetes or glucosuria with respect to the presence of MS antecedents. Patients and methods We conducted a cross-sectional study to compare 40 (19 F) LGA-born prepubertal children of a mean age of 6.1 ± 2.5 yr and 49 (25 F) appropriate for gestational age (AGA)-born body mass index (BMI)-matched peers of a mean age of 5.4 ± 1.8 yr with respect to their anthropometric data, blood pressure measurements, fasting serum glucose and insulin levels, homeostasis model assessment-insulin resistance (HOMA-IR), and lipids and atherogenic index (AI) [triglyceride (TG)/high-density lipoprotein cholesterol (HDL-C)]. HOMA-IR > 2.5 was used to define IR. HDL-C ≤ 40 mg/dL and TG ≥ 110 mg/dL were used to define dyslipidemia. Both groups were further divided into subgroups as obese and non-obese according to their BMI percentiles and the analyses were repeated. Results Non-obese LGA children had higher waist circumference (WC) standard deviation scores (SDSs) than BMI-matched AGA-born peers (p = 0.024). There were no significant differences between pooled, obese and non-obese subgroups of LGA-born children and their AGA counterparts with respect to dyslipidemia and IR. AI was higher in non-obese LGA children than in AGA counterparts (p = 0.028). Conclusions Non-obese idiopathic LGA-born children have higher AIs than AGA-born counterparts in the absence of IR. WC seems to be a good clinical screening tool in identifying at risk of non-obese LGA children. Further studies are needed to evaluate MS antecedents in idiopathic LGA-born children.

Waist circumference, a proxy measure of abdominal obesity, is associated with cardio-metabolic risk factors in childhood and adolescence. Although there are numerous studies about waist circumference percentiles in children, only a few studies cover preschool children. The aim of this study was to develop age- and gender-specific waist circumference smoothed reference curves in Turkish preschool children to determine abdominal obesity prevalence and to compare them with reference curves obtained...

Objective: Intrauterine growth references are primarily useful indicators in the assessment of the general health status of newborn infants. Although Lubchenco’s references are still used in many neonatal care units, we believe that there is a need for up-to-date intrauterine growth references specific for different populations. To develop gestational age-and gender-specific national references for birth weight, birth length and head circumference. Methods: Data were collected from neonatal reco...

Numerous appetite, growth, obesity-related hormones and inflammatory factors are found in human breast-milk, but there is little evidence on their relationship with infant body composition. The purpose of the present cross-sectional pilot study was to assess the cross-sectional associations of appetite-regulating hormones and growth factors (leptin, insulin, glucose) and inflammatory factors (IL-6 and TNF-α) in human breast-milk with infant size, adiposity, and lean tissue at 1-month of age in h...

Abstract Objective To investigate the relationship between adipokines (visfatin, adiponectin) and 25-hydroxyvitamin D (25(OH)D), and markers of insulin sensitivity in large for gestational age (LGA) infants. Patients and methods Forty LGA infants (25 LGA born to diabetic mothers and 15 LGA born to non-diabetic mothers) and 34 appropriate for gestational age (AGA) infants were recruited. Results FGIR, QUICK-I, adiponectin and 25(OH)D levels were significantly lower in LGA with diabetic mother gro...

This study explores in a group of obese children and adolescents aged 10 to16 years, the prevalence of metabolic syndrome (MS) according to the criteria of International Diabetes Federation (IDF). In addition, the prevalence of insulin resistance (IR) was investigated to find correlations between MS and IR. IDF definition was compared to a modified WHO definition. A total of 159 obese patients (74 male and 85 female; median age 12.7 years) were included in the study. Anthropometric measurements,...

As a transitional society, rapid changes have occurred in the social, economic, nutritional and lifestyle aspects of the Turkish population over the last three decades. As a result, the prevalence of overweight and obesity has shown a dramatic increase in the adult Turkish population, reaching figures as high as 30-40%. Although there is no nationwide figure regarding the prevalence of overweight and obesity in Turkish children and adolescents, several local studies performed between 2000 and 20...

Metabolic syndrome (MetS) is a complex disorder defined by a cluster of interconnected factors that increase the risk of cardiovascular atherosclerotic diseases and diabetes mellitus type 2. Currently, several different definitions of MetS exist, causing substantial confusion as to whether they identify the same individuals or represent a surrogate of risk factors. Recently, a number of other factors besides those traditionally used to define MetS that are also linked to the syndrome have been i...

Recent research had shown blood glucose was not the only cause of large for gestational age infant (LGA), the contributions of other fuels such as lipids also play an important role in fetal development. However the association between maternal triglyceride at early trimester and the risk of LGA has not yet been clearly elucidated. This research evaluated the association of maternal early trimester TG level with the risk of LGA infant in Chinese mothers. 2839 pregnant women were recruited at the...

Metabolic syndrome is an important problem in a population of children and adolescents. Genetic predisposition and environmental factors such as physical inactivity and increased caloric intake are responsible for the predisposition to metabolic syndrome. Insulin resistance is proposed to have a pivotal role in the development of the metabolic syndrome. Metabolic syndrome, which is composed of such factors as insulin resistance, glucose intolerance or diabetes, dyslipidemia and arterial hyperten...

Summary Sarcopenia means the progressive loss of skeletal muscle mass and strength with aging. In this study, we found that insulin resistance, chronic kidney disease stage 3, and osteoporosis at the femur neck were closely associated with sarcopenia in elderly men. These conditions modified to slow down the progression of sarcopenia.
