Abstract

Key PointsQuestionIs childhood body mass index and change in body mass index associated with adult ischemic stroke? FindingsIn this population-based cohort study of 307 677 Danish individuals (8899 ischemic stroke cases), above-average body mass indexes at ages 7 to 13 years and increases in body mass index across these ages heightened the risk of ischemic stroke at ages 25 to 55 years but not at older ages. The associations were not influenced by birth weight. MeaningTo avoid early ischemic strokes associated with childhood overweight and obesity from occurring, these results suggest that, in addition to weight reduction and maintenance in obese children, other individualized measures may be necessary.
