Pediatric Endocrinology - Obesity

​​​​​​​​​​​In children as in adults, severe obesity can lead to insulin resistance and, consequently, type 2 diabetes. 

Marshfield Clinic has pediatric specialists who are experts in the management of childhood obesity and its complications.


Lifestyle changes
In many cases, simple changes to diet and exercise can help end obesity:

  • Reduce intake of foods that are high in calories and carbohydrates. This will keep the body from storing too much energy as fat.

  • A consistent course of exercise will help to lose or maintain weight as well as making the heart stronger.​
