TEHRAN – A rapid onset of body mass index (BMI) during puberty and adulthood is linked to a risk of hypertension and diabetes in & # 39; an adulthood, suggests a new study.
Educated by the Shahid Beheshti Medical University Research Institute for Endocrine Sciences in the course of 12 years, the study has investigated adolescent BMI changes and has an effect on hypertension and diabetes in adults.
The study suggests that the trend of change in BMI over a period of time is more important than obesity in young adults.
The speed of weight recovery is also an important factor.
Those girls whose weights are getting sharper are more at risk for hypertension and diabetes compared to girls who suffer from obesity than those whose weights are increasing in time.
Early risk factors can be diagnosed to prevent the spread of disease, which would be a tremendous help to have a healthy society.
BMI in children, adolescents and adults
According to Medical News Today, Body mass index, or BMI, is a measure of body size. It combines the weight of a person with her height. The results of a BMI measurement can give an idea as to whether a person has the right weight for their height.
Too much weight can lead to a variety of health conditions, such as type 2 diabetes, high blood pressure, and cardiovascular problems.
In adults, BMI values are not linked to age and are the same for both sexes.
However, the measure of BMI in children and teenagers is somewhat different. Females and boys develop at different rates and have different body fat at different ages. For this reason, BMI measurements take into account childhood and adulthood age and sex.
Health professionals do not categorize children by healthy weight ranges, changing them with any age of age, changing male and female body types into different rates and changing them as the child increases.
BMI is a useful tool, but it cannot identify if the weight of a person is muscle or fat.
For example, an athlete with a lot of muscle can have a higher BMI than a person who's not quite active. But this does not mean that the athlete is overweight or unhealthy.
In addition, cardiovascular disease and high blood pressure are more common in people who have extra fat – known as visceral fat – for their midst rather than their hips.
