Washington: Children who are overweight or obese face an increased risk of having gallstones, a new study has claimed.Researchers of the new study found that children and adolescents who were overweight were twice as likely to have gallstone disease as compared to children and adolescents who had a normal body mass index.Those who were moderately obese were four times as likely to have gallstones and those who were extremely obese were six times as likely to have gallstones.The study was based on information in the electronic health records of more than 510,000 children ages 10 to 19, from 2007 through 2009, who were members of Kaiser Permanente Southern California.The size and diversity of this population-based study allowed researchers to explore racial and ethnic disparities. Hispanic youth were more likely to have gallstones than youth of other races and ethnicities.
