Abstract Share this page

Two hundred and one individuals with Down's syndrome were assessed for evidence of overweight and obesity. Thirty-one per cent of males and 22% of females were overweight, while 48% males and 47% females were obese. Overweight and obesity was significantly associated with living in the family home compared to supervised community units or in hospital. No association with the degree of learning disability was found.
