PURPOSE. Pediatric hyperlipidemia increases cardiovascular disease risk. The cornerstone of treatment is a restrictive, lipid-lowering diet. Child disease understandings and perceptions of dietary adherence were explored, a secondary aim of the Endothelial Assessment of Risk from Lipids in Youth trial. DESIGN AND METHODS. Focus groups and individual interviews were conducted with participants, ages 9–20 years (n = 50). Data were thematically analyzed. FINDINGS. Adherence is influenced by individual characteristics (developmental level, knowledge), in the context of social interactions (family modeling, peer relationships, school). PRACTICAL IMPLICATIONS. Dietary practices are developed within social interactions. Interventions promoting adherence must consider children within their social contexts.

The US Preventive Services Task Force (USPSTF) concludes that the evidence is insufficient to recommend for or against routine screening for lipid disorders in infants, children, adolescents, or young adults (up to age 20) (I recommendation). ### Importance There is good evidence that children with lipid disorders (dyslipidemia) are at risk for becoming adults with lipid disorders. ### Detection For children with familial dyslipidemia, the group most likely to benefit from screening, use of fami...

OBJECTIVE. This was a systematic evidence review for the US Preventive Services Task Force, intended to synthesize the published evidence regarding the effectiveness of selecting, testing, and managing children and adolescents with dyslipidemia in the course of routine primary care. METHODS. Literature searches were performed to identify published articles that addressed 10 key questions. The review focused on screening relevant to primary care of children without previously identified dyslipide...

Although for most children the process of atherosclerosis is subclinical, dramatically accelerated atherosclerosis occurs in some pediatric disease states, with clinical coronary events occurring in childhood and very early adult life. As with most scientific statements about children and the future risk for cardiovascular disease, there are no randomized trials documenting the effects of risk reduction on hard clinical outcomes. A growing body of literature, however, identifies the importance o...

Thematic analysis is a poorly demarcated, rarely acknowledged, yet widely used qualitative analytic method within psychology. In this paper, we argue that it offers an accessible and theoretically flexible approach to analysing qualitative data. We outline what thematic analysis is, locating it in relation to other qualitative analytic methods that search for themes or patterns, and in relation to different epistemological and ontological positions. We then provide clear guidelines to those want...

Purpose of reviewWe review the 2004 literature on risk factors for childhood overweight. Given the steady increase in the prevalence of childhood overweight, the identification of risk factors is of increasing importance.Recent findingsA number of studies confirmed that parental overweight is the mo

Objectives. We sought to code food (nutritional content and food type and eating occasion) and character (cartoon and live action) attributes of food advertisements airing during television programs heavily viewed by children, and to represent and evaluate the nutritional content of advertised foods in terms of the nutrition facts label.Methods. Food advertisements (n=426) aimed at general and child audiences were coded for food and character attributes. “Nutrition Facts” label data for advertis...

A systematic review was conducted to examine the barriers to, and facilitators of, healthy eating among young people (11–16 years). The review focused on the wider determinants of health, examining community- and society-level interventions. Seven outcome evaluations and eight studies of young people’s views were included. The effectiveness of the interventions was mixed, with improvements in knowledge and increases in healthy eating but differences according to gender. Barriers to healthy eatin...

Objective: The primary objective of this study was to determine whether the National Cholesterol Education Program Step II (NCEP-II) diet or supplementation with docosahexaenoic acid (DHA) with the diet, affects endothelial function in children with familial hypercholesterolemia (FH) or the phenotype of familial combined hyperlipidemia (FCH). As secondary endpoints, the influence of diet and DHA supplementation on lipid profiles as well as biomarkers for oxidative stress and inflammation, and as...

Abstract Evidence suggests that dietary n-3 fatty acids, eicosapentaenoic acid (EPA), and docosahexaenoic acid (DHA) are protective against cardiovascular disease. Previous research has shown that DHA supplementation improves vascular endothelial function in hyperlipidemic children. The purpose of this study was to determine the effects of dietary supplementation with DHA on plasma phospholipid fatty acid composition in hyperlipidemic children as a potential mechanism for the vascular response. ...

Obesity is a metabolic disorder, characteristic of countries where the nutritional transition process occurs more intensely. Currently, the number of obese children and adolescents has grown ominously, and the emergence of this disorder in childhood can result in negative consequences for adult life. In our review, a search for selected keywords in indexed databases was performed, inclusion/exclusion of selected works were applied for the acquisition of relevant documents, moreover, practices an...

This study assessed whether adolescents’ perception of the healthfulness of their diet was related to dietary behaviors over the past week, controlling for demographic characteristics. Participants (n=391) completed an online survey on the frequency of specific dietary behaviors over the past week and the perceived healthfulness of their own diet compared to their peers’ diets. Mean intakes of juice, fruit, vegetables, milk, sugar-sweetened beverages, and diet beverages, were compared by perceiv...

Abstract My primary goal in conducting the research was to investigate and hypothesise about the relationships and patterns involved in childhood bereavement. Methodologically, I applied a combined process, to view both the data and my work with bereaved children. I explored the relationships between the stories told in a therapeutic dialogue, and the emergent patterns within my research data. Furthermore, this study will analyse and discuss the literature around grief as an interdependent trans...

The precise genetic mutations that directly cause or play some role in coronary artery disease (CAD), cardiomyopathies, cardiac arrhythmias, and pulmonary artery hypertension have begun to be identified. The majority of the genetic mutations of hypertrophic and dilated cardiomyopathies have also been described. Many of the genes responsible for cardiac arrhythmias, such as long QT syndrome, have been identified as well. In this chapter, we will specifically address the genetics of CAD, hyperlipi...

First, a little background to contextualize my research: Today, through expanding media coverage, most people are at least minimally aware of the plight of children and adolescents in foster care. Here are some of the major trends. Currently, over a half a million children in the United States live in foster care, with 124,000 of them living in my home state of California (Adoption & Foster Care Analysis & Reporting System (AFCARS), 2007). They are placed in foster care for a variety of reasons ...
