C H A P T E R 6 29 Children (27%) had a PIm < PIe at the age of 1 year. 9 Of these 29 children (8% of 109) had a PIm < PIe -‐ 2SD at the age of 1 year (Figure 1). A skewed distribution can be seen. Of all the 111 children, who did not develop overweight at the age of 5 years, 49 children (44%) had a PIm > PIe at the age of 1 year. 18 Of these 49 children (16% of 111) had a PIm > PIe + 2SD at the age of 1 year. 62 Children (56%) had a PIm < PIe at the age of 1 year. 23 Of these 62 children (21% of 111) had a PIm < PIe -‐ 2SD value at the age of 1 year (Figure 1). An equal distribution can be seen in the control group. 94 Figure 1: Number of children plotted against the degree of deviation of the SD of the difference of PIm and PIe. Of these 220 children, 68 (31%) have a PIm > PIe + 2SD at the age of 1 year. Appar-‐ ently, of these 68 children, 50 children (74%) developed overweight at the age of 5 years. 32 Children have a PIm < PIe -‐ 2SD at the age of 1 year. Of these 32 children 9 (28%) appear to become overweight at the age of 5 years. By analyzing the individ-‐ ual data of this group, most of these children become heavier from the age of 2 years onwards. 23 Of these 32 (72%) children appear to have a normal weight at the age of 5-‐6 years; none of them are underweight at that age.
