abstract
BACKGROUND: With increasing survival of preterm very low birth weight (VLBW) infants, the long-term effects of being born prematurely are now being recognized. Evidence is emerging that prematurity is associated with overweight or obesity status and long-term cardiometabolic derangements in adolescence or adulthood and that specific neonatal variables may affect this association.
