Childhood Obesity

Childhood obesity is a condition where a child accumulates excess  body fat and which in turn negatively affects the health. The diagnosis of obesity is often based on BMI (Body Mass Index). It is being recognized as a serious public health concern. Children become overweight and obese for plenty of reasons. Of them the most common causes include genetic factors, lack of physical activity, unhealthy eating patterns, or simply a combination of these factors. Only in rare cases overweight is caused by a medical condition such as a hormonal problem.  For such cases generally physical exam including some blood tests can rule out the possibility of a medical condition as the cause for obesity.
