Depressive symptoms and low self-esteem in obese children and adolescents
Obese children and adolescents, as a whole, did not present more depressive symptoms and lower SE than the general pediatric population. However, some obese patients may be at higher risk for psychopathology. In this study, the degree of obesity (BMI), age and sex were not risk factors for psychopathology. The relative low scores on Physical SE and their correlation to CDI scores suggest that body image dissatisfaction may be a risk factor for psychopathology in a subgroup of obese patients.

Abstract

Obese children and adolescents, as a whole, did not present more depressive symptoms and lower SE than the general pediatric population. However, some obese patients may be at higher risk for psychopathology. In this study, the degree of obesity (BMI), age and sex were not risk factors for psychopathology. The relative low scores on Physical SE and their correlation to CDI scores suggest that body image dissatisfaction may be a risk factor for psychopathology in a subgroup of obese patients.
