Metabolic signatures of birth weight in 18288 adolescents and adults

Würtz et al. International Journal of Epidemiology 2016;45(5):1539-50

In this paper the metabolic signature of lower birth weight is shown to resemble the metabolic effects of higher body mass index.

The metabolic perturbations are shown to be rather modest in comparison to the metabolic effects of adiposity.
