Effect of growth in infancy on body composition, insulin resistance, and concentration of appetite hormones in adolescence

Research output: Contribution to journalJournal articleResearchpeer-review

High infancy weight gain is associated with increased body mass index (BMI) and insulin resistance (IR) in later life, but the association with later body composition has not been well explored. Appetite regulatory hormones may be programmed in early life, but data to support this are lacking.
