Objective:Obesity and underweight in young adulthood are associated with greater risk of future disability pension. Neither underlying causes of disability pension nor whether overweight confers excess risk is established in this age group. The aim of this study was to investigate risk of future disability pension according to body mass index (BMI) in young adulthood.Design:BMI was measured at military conscription (1969–1994; n=1 191 027; mean age 18.3±0.5 years). Date and cause of disability… Expand
The combined effects of overweight and smoking in late adolescence on subsequent disability pension: a nationwide cohort study
TLDR
Both increased adiposity and smoking are strong and independent predictors of disability pension, but they do not act synergistically. Expand
Obesity status and risk of disability pension due to psychiatric disorders
TLDR
Underweight and overweight were associated with small risk increases, whereas higher risks for DP were generally found for obesity. Expand
Lifetime productivity losses associated with obesity status in early adulthood: a population-based study of Swedish men.
TLDR
Obesity is associated with almost twice as high productivity losses to society as for normal weight over a lifetime, which is important to include in health economic analyses of obesity intervention programmes in order to ensure an effective allocation of resources from a societal perspective.

Lifetime Productivity Losses Associated with Obesity Status in Early Adulthood
TLDR
Obesity is associated with almost twice as high productivity losses to society as for normal weight over a lifetime, which is important to include in health economic analyses of obesity intervention programmes in order to ensure an effective allocation of resources from a societal perspective.

Relative weight and disability retirement: a prospective cohort study.
TLDR
Maintenance of normal weight is likely to reduce the risk of disability retirement among obese employees and the focus should be on the improvement of physical functioning and the effective treatment of obesity and its co-morbidities to counteract the heightened risk of Disability retirement. Expand
Stability and change of body mass index as a predictor of disability pension
TLDR
BMI is an early predictor of general DP and also of DP due to MSD and may possibly have a direct effect on the risk of DP, according to the independency of various covariates. Expand
Combined effects of overweight and smoking in late adolescence on subsequent mortality: nationwide cohort study
TLDR
Investigating the combined effects on adult mortality of overweight and smoking in late adolescence in Sweden found obesity and overweight were as hazardous as heavy and light smoking, respectively, but there was no interaction between BMI and smoking status. Expand
Association between obesity status and sick-leave in Swedish men: nationwide cohort study.
TLDR
Overweight and obesity are associated with increased risk for sick-leave compared to normal weight, especially for Sick-leave episodes of longer duration, and underweight showed increased risk only for short-term episodes. Expand

Obesity in young adulthood and later disability pension: A population-based cohort study of 366,929 Swedish men
TLDR
Obese men in Sweden are at higher risk of receiving disability pension and the relationship between BMI and disability pension is J-shaped, an important future task is to estimate the societal costs due to disability pension of obese people. Expand
Risk of disability and mortality due to overweight in a Finnish population.
TLDR
Though modest overweight has little impact on mortality it predicts severe functional impairment and a considerable proportion of work disability pensions could probably be prevented by efficient weight control. Expand

TLDR
BMI was significantly associated with disability pension, but the direction of causality may vary with underlying cause, and interventions had positive productivity effects in the morbidly obese, but whether this holds for the overweight remains to be proven. Expand

OBJECTIVES This study examined whether body mass index (BMI) or change in BMI raises the risk of disability in adulthood. METHODS The relation between BMI and upper- and lower-body disability wasExpand
Childhood adversities as a predictor of disability retirement
TLDR
Information on childhood conditions may increase the understanding of the determinants of early retirement, especially due to mental disorders, and childhood adversities should be taken into account when considering determinant of disability retirement and identifying groups at risk. Expand

TLDR
The excess risks of morbidity and disability due to obesity were highest in the youngest age groups and exceeded those of mortality in all age groups. Expand

TLDR
About 10 percent of the total cost of loss of productivity due to sick-leave and disability pensions in women may be related to obesity and obesity-related diseases. Expand
Shift in the composition of obesity in young adult men in Sweden over a third of a century
TLDR
Morbid obesity increased faster than moderate obesity during the last 35 years, and as the health risks and costs of obesity-related morbidity increase disproportionately in the morbidly obese, it is important to assess morbid obesity in prevalence studies, and distinguishThe morbidly from the moderately obese in cost analyses.
