The indicator describes the following: Prevalence of overweight and obesity in adolescents.
The indicator describes the following: Prevalence of overweight and obesity in adults.
This report is a systematic review of the effects of lifestyle interventions aiming for low weight gain (< 5 kg) or weight loss for pregnant women with pre-pregnant BMI ≥ 30.
For this rapid review, we aimed to summarise findings about the effectiveness of treatment options for morbid obesity.
The aim of this report is to present factors that may affect children and adolescents’ health and environment.
Health technology assessment
We have summarized research of long-term effects after bariatric surgery compared with non-surgical treatment in persons with BMI ≥ 30 kg/m 2.
We have assessed effectiveness of interventions to reduce body mass index (BMI) and/or body mass index standard deviation score (BMI z-score) in children and adolescents with overweight or obesity.
We were commissioned to make a systematic review on weight maintenance among children and adolescents after participating in an intervention for reduction of overweight.
We carried out a systematic mapping review. Our aim was to describe available research about interventions to reduce weight in adults with overweight or obesity.
Norwegian Institute of Public Health (NIPH) was commissioned to carry out a HTA comparing the effectiveness of different surgical procedures for the treatment of obesity among adults.
