Metabolic Predictors of Target Organ Damage in Adolescents

The SHIP AHOY Study


The development of cardiovascular disease in adults has been directly linked to a metabolic phenotype that includes hypertension, obesity and dyslipidemia. While there is evidence that the development of these risk factors in childhood is linked with persistence into adulthood and eventual development of cardiovascular disease, less is known about whether these risk factors contribute to target organ damage during childhood.
