The importance of changing patterns of obesity in society and its implications for public health are well recognized. However, the adult life course of body mass index (BMI) changes in individuals over time is largely unknown and has mostly been extrapolated from cross-sectional studies. The present study examines individual specific variation of BMI during a 15-year follow-up period in a community-based sample of UK females. We attempted to establish whether there is a common, generalized… Expand

Variations over four decades in body mass index trajectories prior to diagnosis of diabetes mellitus: The Manitoba Follow-up Study, 1948–2007
TLDR
The BMI trajectories during the 20 years leading up to T2DM varied by decade of diagnosis, and the increase in BMI persisted for much longer among relatively younger men with a diagnosis in more recent decades. Expand
The Effects of Age, Adiposity, and Physical Activity on the Risk of Seven Site‐Specific Fractures in Postmenopausal Women
TLDR
The role of age, body mass index (BMI), and physical activity on the risk of fracture at seven sites in postmenopausal women is explored in this large population study. Expand
Effects of Age, Adiposity, and Physical Activity on the Risk of Seven Site-Specific Fractures in Postmenopausal Women. Journal of Bone
Risk factors for fracture of the neck of the femur are relatively well established, but those for fracture at other sites are little studied. In this large population study we explore the role ofExpand
The relationship between job enrichment and abdominal obesity: a longitudinal field study of apparently healthy individuals.
TLDR
The results supported the hypothesized U-shaped relationship between job enrichment and changes in both indicators of abdominal Obesity over time, such that the level of abdominal obesity was reduced when job enrichment was moderate and was increased when job enriching was either high or low. Expand
Longitudinal Trajectories of Cholesterol from Midlife through Late Life according to Apolipoprotein E Allele Status
TLDR
Evidence is provided that variations in APOE modify trajectories of serum cholesterol from midlife to late life, and it is important to take into account APOE allele status in order to efficiently modify cholesterol through the life span. Expand
Prevalence of site-specific thigh sarcopenia in Japanese men and women
TLDR
It is suggested that site-specific thigh sarcopenia appears before it is able to be detected at the whole body level, compared to the sarc Openia estimated by SM index. Expand
The Impact of Body Image on Women in Later Life: Effects on Quality of Life and Body Perception
Physical, mental, and emotional changes can occur t hroughout the aging process, making it important to treat different age groups as separ ate populations when researching body image. Yet, very fewExpand
The effect of body mass index on the risk of post-operative complications during the 6 months following total hip replacement or total knee replacement surgery.
OBJECTIVE To assess the effect of obesity on 6-month post-operative complications following total knee (TKR) or hip (THR) replacement. DESIGN Data for patients undergoing first THR or TKR betweenExpand
The influence of mammographic density on breast tumor characteristics
TLDR
PD does not seem to be differentially associated with tumor phenotype, except for tumor size, after taking mode of detection into consideration, in postmenopausal women. Expand
Effect of nutrition interventions on diet-related and health outcomes of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Australians: a systematic review
TLDR
Store-based intervention with community health promotion in very remote communities, fiscal strategies and nutrition education and promotion programmes show promise, but future dietary intervention studies must be rigorously evaluated. Expand

Evolution of Obesity Prevalence in France: An Age-Period-Cohort Analysis
TLDR
There was a progressive increase in the prevalence of obesity between 1997 and 2006, attributable either to a period effect or to a cohort effect, which seemed to be stronger in women. Expand
Predictors and tracking of body mass index from adolescence into adulthood: follow-up of 18 to 20 years in the Oslo Youth Study.
TLDR
Tracking of BMI from adolescence into adulthood was substantial and changes in LTPA between adolescence and adulthood predicted the risk of adult overweight, suggesting that the foundation for adult body weight is laid during adolescence. Expand
Longitudinal Modelling of Body Mass Index from Birth to 14 Years
TLDR
Compared to their normal weight peers, overweight and obese adolescents experience an earlier adiposity rebound, with a higher BMI at rebound, when they are overweight or obese at 14 years. Expand
Longitudinal change in height of men and women: implications for interpretation of the body mass index: the Baltimore Longitudinal Study of Aging.
TLDR
The authors studied 2,084 men and women aged 17-94 years enrolled from 1958 to 1993 in the Baltimore Longitudinal Study of Aging, Baltimore, Maryland to determine the magnitude of height loss that accompanies aging. Expand
Long-term tracking of cardiovascular risk factors among men and women in a large population-based health system: the Vorarlberg Health Monitoring & Promotion Programme.
TLDR
This is the largest study yet of adults to demonstrate significant tracking effects of cardiovascular risk factors over time and the strength of this effect should be considered in assessing effectiveness of risk factor modification programmes. Expand
A 24-year follow-up of body mass index and cerebral atrophy
TLDR
Overweight and obesity throughout adult life may contribute to the development of temporal atrophy in women, particularly in middle-aged women. Expand
A 3-year longitudinal analysis of changes in Body Mass Index.
TLDR
The results of this longitudinal study showed markedly an important relationship of lower fitness levels with the risk of being overweight/obese, in particular CRF and abdominal strength. Expand
Overweight and Obesity among adults in Serbia: Results from the National Health Survey
TLDR
Lower educational status, marriage status, rural area of settlement, third and fourth level of household income and irregular main meals were all strongly associated with overweight and obesity in Serbian adults. Expand
Tracking of cardiovascular risk factors: the Tromsø study, 1979-1995.
TLDR
Women were more likely than men to remain in the upper sextile of systolic and diastolic blood pressures and of BMI, and some baseline predictors were associated with tracking, but the effects were relatively weak. Expand
Trends in the distribution of body mass index among Chinese adults, aged 20–45 years (1989–2000)
TLDR
Chinese BMI dynamics show much greater rates of change among men, aged 20–45 years, than among women, with the increase among women concentrated between ages 35 and 45 years, which portend large shifts in other diet-related non-communicable diseases in China over the following decades. Expand
