Summary

This is a follow-up cohort study of 8 years old children born preterm at Seoul National University Children's Hospital in Korea from 2008-2009.

The children will visit outpatient clinics for examinations regarding growth, obesity and other risk factors related to metabolic syndrome.

The purpose of this study is to compare growth and risk factors of metabolic syndrome among children born preterm and children born healthy term at school age

A cluster of metabolic risk factors for CARDIOVASCULAR DISEASES and TYPE 2 DIABETES MELLITUS. The major components of metabolic syndrome X include excess ABDOMINAL FAT; atherogenic DYSLIPIDEMIA; HYPERTENSION; HYPERGLYCEMIA; INSULIN RESISTANCE; a proinflammatory state; and a prothrombotic (THROMBOSIS) state.

Variation in health status arising from different causal factors to which each birth cohort in a population is exposed as environment and society change.

A general term indicating inflammation of the BRAIN and SPINAL CORD, often used to indicate an infectious process, but also applicable to a variety of autoimmune and toxic-metabolic conditions. There is significant overlap regarding the usage of this term and ENCEPHALITIS in the literature.

Generic term for diseases caused by an abnormal metabolic process. It can be congenital due to inherited enzyme abnormality (METABOLISM, INBORN ERRORS) or acquired due to disease of an endocrine organ or failure of a metabolically important organ such as the liver. (Stedman, 26th ed)
