  Purpose

Definition:

This Study has the Purpose to look at Children in treatment for Overweight. The investigators will investigate how The Metabolic Syndrome and adipositas related gene-polymorphs are related to overweight, weight loss and weight gain among Children in treatment of overweight.

The Metabolic Syndrome is defined as Abdominal Obesity and /or high BMI (Body mass index)and at least one of the following circumstances; Hypertension, Dyslipidaemia and insulin-resistance .

Study Hypothesis:

This Study will see, how Indicators as Abdominal Obesity, Hypertension, Dyslipidaemia and Insulin-resistance influence on weight loss and the Ability to remain this lower weight among adipose Children.

This Study will see, how NAFLD (non-alcoholic fatty liver disease) influences on weight loss and the Ability too remain this lower weight among adipose Children.

This Study will see, how NAFLD (non-alcoholic fatty liver disease)and Insulin Resistance will get normalized as adiposed Children are becoming a weight loss.

This Study will see, how serological markers as the Interleukines (IL) 2,6,8,10,12,17, the Cytokines; MBL, Interferon gamma, B27, TNF alfa and BNP are associated with Adipositas.

This Study will see, how gene-polymorphs influence on weight loss among adipose Children.
