We aimed to investigate whether childhood body mass index (BMI) trajectory was associated with later kidney function in the Medical Research Council National Survey of Health and Development (NSHD), a nationally-representative birth cohort which initially included 5362 subjects.
We found higher childhood BMI trajectory to be associated with chronic kidney diesease in later life. That these findings were replicated using two different biomarkers for kidney function indicates a degree of robustness.
Further studies are required to confirm this association.
