Abstract

Verify the association between metabolic risk profile (MRP) in students with different levels of cardiorespiratory fitness (CRF) and body mass index (BMI), as well as the nutritional status of their parents. Cross-sectional study comprising 1254 schoolchildren aged between 7 and 17 years. MRP was calculated by summing the standardized values of HDL and LDL cholesterol, triglycerides, glucose, and systolic blood pressure. The parents' nutritional status was evaluated by self-reported weight and height data for BMI calculation. The BMI of schoolchildren was classified as underweight/normal weight and overweight/obese. CRF was assessed by 9-minute run/walk test, categorized as fit (good levels) and unfit (low levels). Data were analyzed using prevalence ratio (PR) values. The data indicates a higher occurrence of metabolic risk development in schoolchildren whose mothers were obese (PR: 1.50; 95% CI: 1.01, 2.23), and even higher for those whose father and mother were obese (PR: 2.79; 95% CI: 1.41, 5.51). Students who had low levels of CRF and overweight/obesity had higher occurrence of presenting the MRP (PR: 5.25; 95% CI: 3.31, 8.16). The occurrence of metabolic risk development in schoolchildren increases with low levels of cardiorespiratory fitness, overweight/obesity, and presence of parental obesity.

Attention Score in Context

This research output has an Altmetric Attention Score of 1. This is our high-level measure of the quality and quantity of online attention that it has received. This Attention Score, as well as the ranking and number of research outputs shown below, was calculated when the research output was last mentioned on 04 April 2017.
All research outputs
#7,871,990
of 12,546,249 outputs
Outputs from Jornal de Pediatria
#221
of 419 outputs
Outputs of similar age
#143,575
of 264,425 outputs
Outputs of similar age from Jornal de Pediatria
#8
of 13 outputs
Altmetric has tracked 12,546,249 research outputs across all sources so far. This one is in the 23rd percentile – i.e., 23% of other outputs scored the same or lower than it.
So far Altmetric has tracked 419 research outputs from this source. They receive a mean Attention Score of 3.3. This one is in the 48th percentile – i.e., 48% of its peers scored the same or lower than it.
Older research outputs will score higher simply because they've had more time to accumulate mentions. To account for age we can compare this Altmetric Attention Score to the 264,425 tracked outputs that were published within six weeks on either side of this one in any source. This one is in the 36th percentile – i.e., 36% of its contemporaries scored the same or lower than it.
We're also able to compare this research output to 13 others from the same source and published within six weeks on either side of this one. This one is in the 30th percentile – i.e., 30% of its contemporaries scored the same or lower than it.
