Resumen

LOPEZ-MORALES, Cruz Mónica et al. Family structure of obese/overweight and normal weight adolescents in México. Rev. méd. Chile [online]. 2016, vol.144, n.2, pp.181-187. ISSN 0034-9887.  http://dx.doi.org/10.4067/S0034-98872016000200006.

Background: Feeding modes and appetence toward certain foods are usually conditioned by the family. Obesity during adolescence usually persists during adulthood. Aim: To determine differences in family structure of adolescents according to their nutritional status. Material and Methods: A cross-sectional study was conducted in 60 overweight-obese and 60 normal weight adolescents. Family type was determined based on their conformation (kinship and cohabitation), development (if the mother had a remunerated job), demography (geographical area), integration (functions of the couple); life cycle stage and functionality. Results: Fifty eight percent of normal weight adolescents had simple nuclear families and 47% of overweight-obese adolescents had an extended family. Thirty one and 21% of overweight/obese and normal weight adolescents lived with an overweight/obese individual, respectively. Conclusions: There are differences in the family structure of overweight/obese and normal weight adolescents.
