Children who were persistently heavy at ages 7 and 13 years, and children whose BMI increased from the internal 25th-75th percentiles or from the internal 75.1 th-90th percentiles between ages 7 and 13 years had higher risks of AFF in adulthood than children whose BMIs remained in the internal 25th-75th percentiles at both ages. A decrease in BMI percentile categories between 7 and 13 years of age reduced risks of AFF in adulthood, with risks of AFF reverting to levels similar to those in the reference group for women, but not for men.In conclusion, risks of AFF in adulthood increased with higher childhood BMIs.
