Howe LD, Zimmermann E, Weiss R, Sørensen TIA. Do rapid BMI growth in childhood and early-onset obesity offer cardiometabolic protection to obese adults in mid-life? Analysis of a longitudinal cohort study of Danish men. BMJ Open 2014;4:e004827.
We investigated whether obese adults, who either had an excessive weight gain in childhood or were obese already in early adulthood, would have more favourable cholesterol levels, lower blood sugar levels and pulse pressure compared with persons who became obese as adults. We found no robust indications that the duration of obesity influenced the cholesterol levels, blood sugar and pulse pressure.
Vi undersøgte om fede voksne, der enten havde taget meget på i barndommen eller var fede allerede i det tidlige voksenliv, havde bedre kolesteroltal, lavere blodsukker og puls, end personer der først blev fede som voksne. Vi fandt ingen belæg for at varigheden af fedme havde betydning for kolesteroltal, blodsukker eller puls.

Undersøgelsen tyder på at danske praktiserende læger oftere behandler mandlige end kvindelige patienter for deres overvægt og oftere behandler komplikationer relateret til overvægt hos mandlige end kvindelige overvægtige patienter.
The study has shown that Danish general practitioners more often treat male then female patients for their overweight and, furthermore, they treat complications to overweight more rigorously among male than female overweight patients.
