According to a new study, most children diagnosed with obesity in America do not receive adequate laboratory tests to diagnose co-occurring conditions, such as diabetes and liver disease. The study suggests that just over a quarter of children sampled are tested too often while a similar percentage are not tested enough. For those not tested enough, this could potentially lead to undiagnosed and untreated health conditions, impacting a patient well beyond childhood, argues coauthor and U-M professor Kao-Ping Chua.
