German children with overweight who participated in a comprehensive lifestyle intervention program for 6 months saw a sustained reduction in BMI over 7 years when compared with a control group, according to study findings published in Clinical Nutrition.

“Lifestyle intervention involving the family works to reduce overweight in children when a multi-professional team performs the intervention based on the combination of behavior treatment, nutrition courses and exercise treatment,” Thomas Reinehr, MD, PhD, head of pediatric endocrinology, diabetes and nutrition medicine at Vestische Hospital for Children and Adolescents in Datteln, Germany, told Endocrine Today.
