Abstract Share this page

Nutritional and metabolic factors acting during pre- and postnatal life predict long-term health outcomes. The increasing prevalence of obesity has raised strong interest in early programming, in particular with regard to potentially modifiable variables that would offer effective prevention. Maternal factors such as high maternal prepregnancy body mass index and gestational weight gain, or intrauterine energy and protein deficiency have all been associated with an increased risk of insulin resistance and obesity in the offspring.
