Brief Summary:
This study collects data on children with severe, early-onset obesity.

Condition or disease
Obesity, Childhood Genetic Disease

Detailed Description:
Children and adolescents who have suffered from severe weight gain prior to 5 years of age and who are seen in the Genetic Disorders of Obesity Program at Texas Children are asked to participate in a prospective, observational study. The investigators collect demographic information, body measurements, medical/family history, as well as other questionnaires. Additionally, genetic information, medical lab results, and responses to treatment options are collected. The goal of the study is to determine if the investigators can better understand which children would benefit from testing and further workup as well as to understand how obesity develops in these children and adolescents.

Time Perspective: Prospective
Target Follow-Up Duration: 1 Year
Official Title: Genetic Disorders of Obesity Program Database
Actual Study Start Date : August 30, 2020
Estimated Primary Completion Date : December 31, 2030

Primary Outcome Measures :
  1. Prevalence of genetic causes of severe, early-onset obesity [ Time Frame: through study completion, an average of 10 years ]
    We will measure the number of genetic variants identified in clinical testing
