Metabolic syndrome risk tied to breast-feeding duration

February 21, 2017

Among Korean women, breast-feeding duration may influence the risk for metabolic syndrome, with women who breast-fed for 5 or fewer months having the highest risk compared with women who maintained the practice longer, according to recent study results.

Young Suk Shim, MD, of the department of pediatrics at Hallym University Dongtan Sacred Heart Hospital, Hallym University College of Medicine in Korea, and colleagues evaluated data from the Korean National Health and Nutritional Survey on 4,724 women (mean age, 39.79 years) to determine the effect of lifelong duration of breast-feeding with metabolic syndrome. Participants were divided into four groups based on breast-feeding duration: 5 or fewer months (n = 1,906), 6 to 11 months (n = 691), 12 to 23 months (n = 1,156) or at least 24 months (n = 971).
