Weight has an effect on the mother and the child.

Heredity is a complicated and fascinating matter, but it turns out that it is not just genetics that affects the health of our future children.

New research suggests that being overweight may be linked to an imbalance in hormones that affect the reproductive system of male offspring.

Researchers from Denmark report that overweight mothers may impair the fertility of their sons.



The study from Aarhus University in Denmark included 9,232 men and women aged 31 to 34. Among this group, 10 percent were born to underweight mothers, with a body mass index below 18.5, 77 percent to normal weight mothers and 13 percent to overweight or obese mothers Which includes a pre-pregnancy BMI of over 25.

By examining records of diagnosis and fertility treatment, the scientists found that boys born to overweight mothers were 40 percent more likely to have fertility problems than those born to normal-weight mothers.

Whites with underweight mothers did not have reduced fertility rates, and mother weight did not affect the fertility of her daughters.

The study, published in AOGS, also took into account maternal age, smoking, alcohol consumption, socioeconomic status and other factors.

The reason for the connection is unknown, but the authors suggest that being overweight is an indication of a hormonal imbalance, which may interfere with prenatal development of the male reproductive system.

In addition, it is known that overweight and high fat percentages increase the mother's risk of suffering from blood clots in the legs and health, gestational diabetes, high blood pressure, preeclampsia and mental problems.

In addition, women who are overweight are more likely to have quiet births, preterm births or caesareans because of the baby's overweight.



The lead author, Dr. Lynn H. Arendt, a obstetrician at Aarhus University in Denmark, said that being overweight during pregnancy is unhealthy for several reasons, and that most women are aware that obesity poses risks. , But she asks to take it in proportions and wait for further research.
