Overweight Young Adults at Higher Risk of Developing Chronic Kidney Disease
According to a new study, the overweight young adults have a higher risk of developing the chronic kidney disease by the time they reach the old age. The researchers revealed the negative impacts of excessive weight on the internal organs have obese youths to be at higher risk of developing the chronic kidney disease.
The researchers studied the samples of children born in England, Scotland and Wales during 1946. Data of as many as 4,584 participants was available with the Medical Research Council National Survey Of Health and Development.
The body mass index of the participants was analyzed at the age of 20,26,43,53 and 60 to 64 years. The findings revealed that participants who were overweight in early adulthood between 26 and 36 were at double the risk of having CKD at the age of 60-64 than those who had their weight under control.
Moreover, the study revealed that participants at the age of 43-53 with greater waist-to-hip ratio were more likely to have CKD at the age of 60 to 64 years.
"We estimated that 36% of CKD cases at age 60 to 64 in the current US population could be avoided if nobody became overweight until at least that age", researcher Dr. Dorothea Nitsch, from London School of Hygiene & Tropical Medicine, in England, said in a statement.
