BISMARCK-NASR, Elizabeth Maria; FRUTUOSO, Maria Fernanda Petroli  e  GAMABARDELLA, Ana Maria Dianezi. Late effects of low birth weight. Rev. bras. crescimento desenvolv. hum. [online]. 2008, vol.18, n.1, pp. 98-103. ISSN 0104-1282.

Recent studies suggest that diseases such as Type 2 diabetes, coronary diseases, hypertension and obesity are related to inadequate gestational development. Such phenomenon is known as programming or hypothesis of the fetal origin of disease. Therefore, the nutrition status during gestational period is an important field of scientific research, specially considering that low birth weight is an important public health problem in developing countries, which are subject to the process known as nutritional transition, where economic, nutritional and lifestyle changes allow a higher rate of obesity development.

Palavras-chave : Low birth weight; obesity; programming.
