Abstract (summary):
Objective: To evaluate the SickKids Team Obesity Management Program (STOMP), an obesity management program for severely obese adolescents. Methods: Non-randomized study of 6 and 12 month outcomes in STOMP patients vs. a comparison group of obese adolescents. Results: At 6 months, STOMP patients stabilized their BMI (0.08±0.3 kg/m2;p=0.79) and reported improved psychological and health behaviour measures, whereas comparison participants increased their BMI (0.7±0.2 kg/m2;p=0.004) and had worsening of cardiometabolic outcomes. Between-group differences included improved cardiometabolic, psychological and health behaviour measures in STOMP patients. At 12 months, STOMP patients stabilized their BMI (0.8±0.5 kg/m2;p=0.07), had improvements in anthropometric and cardiometabolic outcomes and reported an increase in health behaviours, whereas comparison participants increased their BMI (1.2±0.4 kg/m2;p=0.001) and had worsening of cardiometabolic outcomes. Between-group differences included improved anthropometric, cardiometabolic and health behaviour outcomes in STOMP patients. Conclusions: Participation in STOMP improved anthropometric, cardiometabolic, psychological and health behaviour outcomes among severely obese adolescents.
