Percentage excess weight and risk of co-morbidity in obese children

van Boxel Elizabeth , Lokulo-Sodipe Oluwakemi , Jayne Kathryn , Davis Nikki

Background: One in four children in England are now obese by school year 6. Childhood obesity is associated with significant co-morbidity including type 2 diabetes (T2DM), non-alcoholic fatty liver disease (NAFLD), obstructive sleep apnoea (OSA) and depression.

Suntharesan Jananie , Parkinson Jennifer , Apperley Louise , Clarke Ellie , Gubaeva Diliara , Senniappan Senthil

Introduction: Visceral body fat has been shown to correlate with complications related to obesity. Body mass index (BMI) is widely used to define obesity in the adolescent population; however, it does not take the overall body composition into account. We present body composition data in a group of UK adolescents attending the tertiary MDT weight management service.Methods: Data was collected on 31 patients (M:F = 15:16) attending the MDT service over a ...

Thrombocytopenia in a patient on antiretroviral therapy treated with liraglutide

Gubaeva Diliara , Nabwera Helen , Benson Cathryn , Senniappan Senthil

Introduction: Up to 70% of adults living with human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) have excessive weight due to side effects of antiretroviral therapy (ART). Liraglutide is a licenced GLP-1 receptor agonist for the treatment of obesity in adolescents. However, there are no studies on effectiveness and safety of GLP-1 receptor agonists in patients on ART as these patients are excluded from most of the clinical trials. Herein, we present a teenage girl with HIV who developed throm...
