Increase in prevalence of adiposity between the ages of 7 and 11 years reflects lower remission rates during this period
von Kries R, Reulen H, Bayer O et al
A considerable increase in the prevalence of overweight during the primary school years (7–11 years) has been reported.
This reflects lower remission rates of excess body fat (i.e. the proportion of shifts from excess to normal body fat) between the ages of 7 and 11 years as compared with nearly balanced incidence and remission rates of excess body fat between the ages of 3 and 7 years.
