Comment dépister et prendre en charge le rebond précoce d’adiposité chez les enfants à Montreuil ?

Abstract : CONTEXT: Infantile obesity is often accompanied by health problems both in childhood and adulthood. Efficient intervention program before obesity installation can be found in the literature. An early adiposity rebound is indeed the earliest mean to detect an obesity to come. QUESTION : How detecting and treating the early adiposity rebound of children in childhood living in Montreuil (Paris area - France) METHODOLOGY : Consensus search in a nominal group to establish a screening protocole for the early adiposity rebound ; elaboration of a care program for identified kids with the RAND/UCLA Appropriateness Method (RAM) group. RESULTS : Screening is not to be achieved by collective actions but by multiplying individual BMI measurements performed both by healthcare professionals and parents. Reinforcing the use of health records is mandatory, as well as an information campaign of professionals and the general public. No study specifically evaluating the interventions to be put in place in case of early adiposity rebound could be found in the literature. The RAM group vote has lead to a new protocole associating nine interventions. It combines workshops for parents, activities for kids, a training for early childhood educators and a guidebook of places to go out with family. CONCLUSION : Screening the early adiposity rebound in Montreuil will be performed on an individual basis, by both healthcare professionals and parents parents. The treatment protocole will comprise a program of nine interventions during one year to be proposed to screened kids families. An evaluation of the efficiency of this protocole will have to be performed.
