Abstract

During the last 14 years 1620 children and adolescents, 806 boys and 814 girls, aged 2-20 yrs, were referred for overweight as outpatients to the Pediatric Endocrine Center of the University of Pavia. On first admission 170 (10%) of the 1620 subjects had a percent overweight of less than 20% referred to ideal weight for height; 350 (22%) patients with overweight ranging from 25 to plus 100 were lost to follow up. We report our dietary management on 1100 children with percent overweight between 25-120, treated for a period of at least 3 months to a maximum of 7 years (mean 3 yrs). All patients were provided with a physiological diet with an adequate or slightly reduced caloric intake for their height (P 15%, F 25%, C 60%). A regular physical activity was recommended to our patients. Before they started the diet patients kept a daily food diary for three days, which included recording information about what food was eaten, how it was prepared and the time at which it was consumed. Food recalls showed a higher caloric intake for height and age with fat and protein excess, especially of animal origin. A lot of snacks, particularly sweets, and soft drinks were consumed during the day.(ABSTRACT TRUNCATED AT 250 WORDS)
