Adolescent Body Mass Index and Future Health Outcomes and Weight Discrimination At 24-Year Follow-Up: Findings From the National Longitudinal Study of Adolescent to Adult Health.

AbstractAlthough adolescent body mass index (BMI) is known to predict BMI later in adulthood, little is known about the associations between adolescent BMI and future health outcomes or weight discrimination (i.e. bias, prejudice, or discrimination due to weight/size) in later adulthood. The aim of this study was to analyze prospective associations between adolescent BMI and adult health outcomes and weight discrimination at 24-year follow-up using nationally representative data from the US.
