Examining the Multigenerational Effects of Obesity, Overweight and Stunting in a Latin American Middle Income Country: The Case of Colombia,” by Mary McEniry, Carmen Elisa Florez, Renata Pardo, Rafael Samper-Ternent, and Carlos Cano-Gutierrez (CDE Working Paper 2017-07, 2017, .pdf format, 45p.).

Abstract:

Examining multigenerational effects on health in Latin American populations from grandparents to subsequent generations is a fruitful area for research. Many Latin American populations have experienced rapid demographic and nutritional changes across generations with possible consequences for older adult health and subsequent generations. Understanding the multigenerational effects of obesity – an important health concern internationally – and early life nutritional status on child stunting merits further consideration. Using comprehensive data collected on households and individuals throughout Colombia (ENDS, ENSIN), we examine differences in child health according to whether grandparents are living/not living in the household and the degree to which obesity and height in older generations predicts child obesity, overweight and stunting in multigenerational households. We find that households with children living with grandparents have a higher prevalence of child obesity and lower prevalence of stunting; junk food consumption is similar across all types of households. In multigenerational households, we find strong intergenerational associations between grandmother-mother obesity and mother-female child obesity (overweight), and strong multigenerational associations between (1) grandfather obesity and female child obesity and overweight; (2) grandmother obesity and male child overweight; and (3) grandparent height and child stunting, mediated by mother height. We conclude that grandparent proximity, family resources, and relationship to household head play an important role in child obesity, overweight and stunting. In spite of grandparent proximity, mother being present in the household is important in terms of child health. Puzzling gender patterns for obesity/overweight raises the possibility of additional multigenerational factors affecting child health.

The Relationship between Obesity and Diabetes among Mexican Elderly: Results from MHAS 2001-2014,” by Guido Pinto (Working Paper No. 2014-04, 2014, .pdf format, 21p.).

Abstract:

Objective. To assess the magnitude of the relationship between obesity and type 2 Diabetes Mellitus (T2DM) among Mexican elderly population. Material and

Methods. Data from the 2001, 2003, and 2012 Mexican Health and Aging Study (MHAS) was used and estimates were obtained using multivariate logit regression methods for panel data.

Results. Logit models produced positive, strong, and significant estimates of the relationship between obesity and T2DM at the population-level, after adjusting for respondent’s individual traits and thus, show that obese individuals, particularly those with abdominal obesity, are more likely to develop diabetes.

Conclusion. The empirical findings gleaned in this paper provide additional evidence of the role of obesity as the primary driver of diabetes. This means that reductions in obesity rates, especially waist obesity, may lead to important declines in morbidity and mortality from diabetes, which consequently may lead to cost reductions for the health system.
