Pregnants' Diet may Cause Childern Obesity


Pregnants' Diet may Cause Childern Obesity

(ePharmaNews) - A recent study found that weight concerns and strict diets at the beginning of pregnancy may put the offspring at an increased risk for obesity and diabetes in the future.

In this study, published in FASEB Journal, researchers pointed out that children in general, and especially twins, who were born from mothers who followed strict diets at the beginning of their pregnancy had increased risk of later obesity and diabetes.

“This study may provide a new understanding of why twins can develop diabetes," said Anne White, Ph.D., study author from the Faculty of Life Sciences at the University of Manchester in Manchester, UK. "It also suggests that dieting around the time a baby is conceived may increase the chance of the child becoming obese later in life."
In this study, the researchers examined the sheep which carried twins to find out the effects of changes in the pattern of nutrition in early pregnancy on the lambs.

The researchers found by analyzing brain tissues of the fetuses that there is a change in the genes that control eating and consumption of sugar, which could lead to obesity and diabetes. The interesting thing was that these changes were not mutations in the structure of the DNA, but these changes were at the level of the combining parts of the DNA, so-called epigenetic changes, which usually affect the fertilized egg during the early stages of pregnancy.

 “This study shows that expecting mothers have to walk a really fine line when it comes to diet and nutrition," said Gerald Weissmann, M.D., Editor-in-Chief of the FASEB Journal. "It also shows that epigenetics is the 'new genetics': both our DNA and the histones in which it is wrapped are susceptible to binge eating and dieting—we are what our mothers ate."
