Abstract:


What is already known about this subject:

- Compared with their healthy-weight peers, children with obesity have;
- impaired physical health-related quality of life
- reduced physical activity levels
- reduced capacity to perform certain weight-bearing tasks in field-based fitness tests

What this study adds:

- First investigation of obesity-related disability in children using the International Classification for Functioning, Disability and Health framework for Children and Youth.
- Obesity in children appears to be associated with disability impacting basic locomotor skills and physical health-related quality of life.
- Children's participation in key life areas related to physical functioning appears to be minimally impacted by obesity.

Objective:

The aim of this study was to investigate whether obesity is related to impaired day-to-day physical functioning and disability in children.

Methods:

An observational case-control study was conducted in three Australian states. Obese (n?=?107) and healthy-weight (n?=?132) 10- to 13-year-olds (132 male, 107 female) were recruited via media advertisements. Assessment of body composition (dual energy X-ray absorptiometry), locomotor capacity (six-minute walk test [6MWT], timed up and down stairs test [TUDS] and timed up and go [TUG]) and child-reported physical health-related quality of life (HRQoL) were undertaken. Participants wore an accelerometer for 8 days and completed two use-of-time telephone interviews to assess participation in key life areas.

Results:

Compared with their healthy-weight counterparts, obese children had lower physical HRQoL scores (P?

Conclusions:

As anticipated, obesity appears to undermine physical functioning in children, including the capacity to perform basic locomotor skills yet, unexpectedly, participation in key life areas related to physical functioning appeared largely unaffected.
