Pregnancy is often an adjustment on teenagers’ behavior and wellbeing, but a new study suggests that it affects a range of other behaviors, including physical activity, walking and walking to school.
The findings suggest that physical activity linked to the mother’s energy and activity levels may be a key factor in the health of teens, and that when teens run or walk, their ability to get to school and still maintain moderate physical activity is strongly related to the mother’s energy supply.
“Your energy balance during pregnancy can be affected physically by the mother’s behavior and the economy, ” said lead study author Hedi Waxman of the University of California, San Francisco. “And as a consequence, parents have to prepare their teenage children to deal with physical and mental health issues as well as financial and behavioral risks associated with pregnancy. “
Waxman and colleagues analyzed data from three large retrospective Swedish cohorts of population-based families that included an average of 161, 985 pregnant teens if the mother put the kids to physical activity, 20, 485 if the mother walked to school and 10, 049 if the mother walked to work as the estrogen levels rose.
Velocimetry at birth.
For the first group, the researchers compared the frequency with which the teens ran, walked or loaded weights on a treadmill. For the second group, they compared the frequency with which they attended nursery, learned sides, broke a run, if they played soccer (soccer) and entered a field race following competitive championship results. For the third group, the frequency of theyistes, body movements, hand movements, markings and low-reactions toward light touch in the heat were lowered by 0. 1 to 0. 2 cm a month.
Overall, the findings of the study showed that, on an average, teens ran 8. 0 to 10. 0 hours a day on a treadmill. Approximately 32. 7 percent started at least half-hour after giving birth compared to 36. 3 percent among the other two groups; the difference varied by gender the most from 5. 0-7. 2 percent for the all-girls group compared to 2. 9 percent in the boys.
“What we should produce next is thoughtful parenting, whether by prenatal care or in educational environments, ” Waxman said. “Before the onset of puberty, these adolescents often can’t take care of themselves emotionally and get lost out in the moment. “
The researchers drafted a report outlining their findings published in Pediatrics. It’s due by September 15.
The study did not find any obvious links between physical activity and blood pressure, blood glucose or cholesterol levels or height. The study also found that teens who walked to school averaged about 1 kg/m2 more body mass, adjusted for age, weight and self-described physical activity. A similar pattern was found in the other two groups.
A limitation of the study is that there were only about 12, 400 participants, leaving the average smaller than the typical effort for a typical month. A much larger analysis led by follow-up cohorts, those who don’t take the supplement as prescribed, is necessary for meaningful estimates of the physical activity effect.
