 Polygenic Risk, Appetite Traits, and Weight Gain in Middle Childhood : A longitudinal study

 

​Forfattere: Silje Steinsbekk, Daniel Belsky, Ismail Cuneyt Guzey, Jane Wardle og Lars Wichstrøm.



​Objective  To test whether genetic risk for obesity predicts accelerated weight gain in middle childhood (ages 4-8 years) and whether genetic association with accelerated weight gain is mediated by appetite traits.

Design, Setting, and Participants  Longitudinal study of a representative birth cohort at the Trondheim Early Secure Study, Trondheim, Norway, enrolled at age 4 years during 2007 to 2008, with follow-ups at ages 6 and 8 years. Participants were sampled from all children born in 2003 or 2004 who attended regular community health checkups for 4-year-olds (97.2% attendance; 82.0% consent rate, n = 2475). Nine hundred ninety-five children participated at age 4 years, 795 at age 6 years, and 699 at age 8 years. Analyses included 652 children with genotype, adiposity, and appetite data.
