Obesity in teens doubles their risk of having a stroke before this age


A new study shows that overweight teens are more likely to have a stroke before their 50s, compared to teens with a normal weight.

According to what was published by “The Daily Mail”, according to the journal Stroke issued by the American Heart Association, researchers analyzed BMI and health data, collected from 1.9 million people between the ages of 16 and 20 in the 1980s, in addition to data on whether they had They had a stroke and when did they have it during follow-up appointments.

Clinically excessive obesity

Researchers discovered that while overweight teens were twice as likely to have a stroke by age 50, clinically obese teens were three times more likely to have a stroke.

While adolescent obesity and stroke rates among adults under 50 continue to rise globally, the exact link between the two conditions remains poorly understood.

Poor job outcomes

Dr. Gilad Twig, a co-author of the study, said that these results confirm the importance of effective treatment and the prevention of excessively high body mass index during adolescence.

The researchers also found that adults who survive a stroke early in life, under the age of 50, face poor job outcomes, which leads to unemployment, depression and stress.

The research team in the study used data from the 1.9 million study participants who underwent one complete medical examination between 1985 and 2013, during which time 1088 strokes occurred, with an average age of 41 for their first stroke. The researchers discovered that adolescents’ BMI is directly related to the risk of having a stroke.

Low normal weight

Also, compared with the cases of participants from the low normal weight BMI group, it was found that adolescents who were in the overweight group were at twice the risk of stroke before the age of 50, while adolescents who were obese had a 3.4 times higher risk.
