Parental body mass index and blood pressure are associated with higher body mass index and blood pressure in their adult offspring: a cross-sectional study in a resource-limited setting in northern Peru

20/04/2018

The BMI of the mother is associated with greater BMI of the adult male offspring; the BMI of the father is associated with greater BMI of both male and female offspring, but to a greater extent than that of the mother. The higher the systolic blood pressure of the mother, the higher the offspring’s systolic blood pressure; there was no association with the father’s blood pressure.
