  • Gain
  • Body mass index (prior to pregnancy or at the first antenatal visit) and weight gain during pregnancy are among the important determinants of the health of both mother and baby. (health.gov.au)
  • The US Institute of Medicine ( IOM ) provides guidance on weight gain in pregnancy based on pre-pregnancy BMI (see Table D3). (health.gov.au)
  • It contains 3 columns: Pre-pregnancy BMI (kg/m2), weight gain (kg) and Rates of weight gain 2nd and 3rd trimester (kg/wk). (health.gov.au)
  • however, it is unclear which factors influence infant diet and weight gain. (aappublications.org)
  • Energy intake at age 4 months was estimated from 1-day unweighed dietary records in 881 infants and related to their childhood weight gain and BMI. (aappublications.org)
  • Higher energy intake at 4 months predicted greater weight gain between birth to age 1, 2, or 3 years and larger body weight and BMI at ages 1 to 5 years. (aappublications.org)
  • Both prenatal and postnatal factors may influence infant energy intake and postnatal weight gain. (aappublications.org)
  • 2 Subsequent larger studies have confirmed that rapid weight gain during the first 4 to 12 months predicts larger BMI in later childhood 3 , 4 and also in young adults. (aappublications.org)
  • The first 2 to 3 years of postnatal life represents a hypervariable period of weight gain, as many infants show relatively rapid weight gain in apparent compensation for in utero growth restraint. (aappublications.org)
  • 2 , 7 , 8 For example, first-born infants are thinner at birth and show subsequent rapid "catch-up" postnatal weight gain compared with a mother's subsequent offspring. (aappublications.org)
  • MC4R may also have clinical utility as a biomarker for predicting individual susceptibility to drug-induced adverse effects causing weight gain and related metabolic abnormalities. (wikipedia.org)
  • Another GWAS performed in 2012 identified twenty SNPs located ~190 Kb downstream of MC4R in association with severe antipsychotic-induced weight gain. (wikipedia.org)
  • Conversely, it was associated with a significant incidence of androgenic side effects including acne and hirsutism, and other androgenic side effects like weight gain, pattern hair loss, and voice deepening were also reported in some trials but were excluded from the meta-analysis due to insufficient data. (wikipedia.org)
  • risks
  • It is a "screening" tool, not a diagnostic tool.Weight is only one factor related to health risks, so many other factors are taken into consideration. (healthtap.com)
  • That said, the federal government announced guidelines which create a new definition of unhealthy weight: Those individuals with a BMI range of 25 or more with a waist size of over 40 inches for men and 35 inches for women, are considered to be at high risk for health problems-generally, the higher the BMI and the larger the waist measurement, the greater the health risks. (cyberparent.com)
  • Maternal excessive GWG was associated with increased risks of pregnancy-induced hypertension, caesarean delivery, LGA, and macrosomia, and decreased risks of preterm delivery, SGA, and low birth weight. (harvard.edu)
  • Therefore
  • Therefore, BMI is not recommended for use as the sole measurement of either body composition or level of fitness. (cyberparent.com)
  • objective
  • Body Mass Index (BMI) is an objective standard that is becoming the measurement of choice for most health care professionals. (cyberparent.com)
  • The objective of this study was to determine whether different feeding patterns and energy intakes that are provided to infants affect body weight and BMI later in childhood. (aappublications.org)
  • risk
  • Remember that it is an "estimate" of body fat, and a fairly good gauge of your risk for diseases that increase with higher body fat. (healthtap.com)
  • health
  • The BMI is simply your weight with respect to your height - an overly simplistic and thereby essentially flawed assessment of your health. (healthtap.com)
  • Methods: Between June 2009 and May 2011, health care records of 33,973 pregnant women were collected and their children were measured for birth weight and birth length. (harvard.edu)
  • Health care providers should inform women to start the pregnancy with a BMI in the normal weight category and limit their GWG to the range specified for their prepregnancy BMI. (harvard.edu)
  • indicates
  • 20 through 24: A BMI between 20 and 22 indicates a healthy amount of body fat and is associated with a long life and with less serious illness. (cyberparent.com)
  • In normal rounding to the nearest value, the scales showing 80 kg indicates a weight between 79.5 kg and 80.5 kg. (wikipedia.org)
  • indicator
  • B.M.I. is something that is used often as a general indicator of being over or under weight, but it does not take anything else into account. (healthboards.com)
  • amount
  • The body adiposity index (BAI) is a method of measuring the amount of body fat in humans. (wikipedia.org)
  • Information gathered using the percentile ranking takes into consideration the childs age and sex, recognising that the amount of body fat regularly changes with age and sex. (wikipedia.org)
