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.

​Treatments

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.​
