Abstract: Background: Overweight and obesity have increased worldwide and affect children at ever younger ages, resulting in cardiovascular disease and type 2 diabetes even in adolescents. This illustrates the importance of identifying children at risk at an early stage. Aim: To study metabolic health in preschool children. Specific aims were to investigate (i) whether 6-year-olds show signs of metabolic syndrome, (ii) whether the fat distribution in 7-year-olds is associated with their metabolic profil... more
