Posted by Apollo Hospitals | 20 Sep,2014

Obesity in Children is alarmingly increasing in India. Recent survey in Chennai shows 1 in 4 children in private schools were overweight/obese. Children who are overweight/obese develop medical problems like diabetes and hypertension at a very young age. Hence, early identification and intervention is very important for their well-being. If left untreated, these children develop various complications including cardio-vascular diseases like myocardial infarction and stroke, in their near future. In order to provide a comprehensive health care for these children, Apollo Children’s Hospital has formed a highly skilled multi-disciplinary expert team. This includes, Consultant Paediatric Endocrinologist and Diabetologist, Paediatric Dietician, Paediatric Physiotherapist and Child Psychologist. These children will have a detailed assessment by each member of the team and will be provided with a comprehensive management plan according to their needs.
