The shift in body size from childhood to adulthood and its correlation with the risk of type 2 diabetes


Childhood obesity raises the chances of developing type 2 diabetes issues in later life. Surprisingly, the potential effects of being lean in childhood on adult obesity and disease risk haven’t received much attention.


A recent study revealed that people who were small-bodied during childhood and became larger-bodied in adulthood faced the greatest risk of developing type 2 diabetes, surpassing those who maintained an average body size throughout life. It underscores the importance of encouraging healthy weight management from childhood into adulthood, especially among lean children.
