The relationships between sugar-sweetened beverage intake and cardiometabolic markers in young children.
J Acad Nutr Diet 2013; 113(2):219-27JA

Abstract

BACKGROUND

The consumption of sugar-sweetened beverages has been implicated as a major contributor to the development of obesity and cardiometabolic disease.

OBJECTIVE

To evaluate the relationships between sugar-sweetened beverage intake and cardiometabolic markers in young children.

DESIGN

A cross-sectional analysis of the National Health and Nutrition Examination Survey data collected by the National Center for Health Statistics.

PARTICIPANTS

A total of 4,880 individuals aged 3 to 11 years from nationally representative samples of US children participating in the National Health and Nutrition Examination Survey during 1999-2004 were studied.

MAIN OUTCOME MEASURES

Concentrations of total cholesterol, high-density lipoprotein cholesterol, low-density lipoprotein cholesterol, triglyceride, and C-reactive protein as well as waist circumference and body mass index percentile for age-sex.

STATISTICAL ANALYSES PERFORMED

Multivariate linear regression analyses were performed to determine independent associations between each outcome variable and the number of serving equivalents of sugar-sweetened beverages consumed after adjusting for age, sex, race, poverty status, physical activity, and energy intake.

RESULTS

Increased sugar-sweetened beverage intake was independently associated with increased C-reactive protein concentrations (P=0.003), increased waist circumference (P=0.04), and decreased high-density lipoprotein cholesterol concentrations (P<0.001). Subgroup analyses demonstrated differences in the association of sugar-sweetened beverage intake with metabolic markers and anthropometric measurements among age ranges, sex, and racial/ethnic groups.

CONCLUSIONS

In this cross-sectional analysis of children's dietary data, sugar-sweetened beverage intake was independently associated with alterations in lipid profiles, increased markers of inflammation, and increased waist circumference in children. Prospective studies are needed, but awareness of these trends is essential in combating the growing metabolic and cardiovascular disease burden in the pediatric population.
