Correlation Between Childhood Obesity and Glycosylated Hemoglobin in Children 12 Years of Age Of The School Lic. Isidro Fabela (Published)

In the present work was carried out as an object the analysis of correlation between childhood obesity and the glycosylated hemoglobin, taking as a case study to two school groups from sixth grade to perform anthropometric measurements, plicometría, takes blood pressure and glycosylated hemoglobin, thus obtaining as a result 6 children with childhood obesity (4 boys and 2 girls), and a glycosylated hemoglobin average of 5.2%, with a minimum of 5.1% and a maximum of 5.4%, giving as a result that the value of glycosylated hemoglobin is not a significant fact to diagnose a metabolic syndrome, the average of greater impact in children with obesity is the blood pressure, in where the diastolic presented an elevation with respect to the normal parameters, subsequently the fat percentage with respect to children, we have a greater variation of 6%, where particularmnente accumulated in the abdominal area, which indicates a central obesity. It is important to note that children generally have acanthosis nigricans which implies a resistance to insulin.
