Anu Arora [6] | Amrin Shaikh | Sujata Yardi [7]


Abstract: The pandemic of obesity in adolescent population has brought along with it adverse implications not just for physical aspects of the health but also the psychological well-being of the affected subjects. Since psychological well-being in adolescence would have far reaching repercussions not only in adolescent subjects presently but also in their future life, hence this research studies the comparison between the Emotional health in normal and overweight/obese adolescents subjects through the Centre for Epidemiologic Studies Depression Scale and Rosenberg's self-esteem scale. Analysis of data from 205 study subjects recruited as per inclusion criteria, found statistically significant reduction in self-esteem in Overweight & Obese Adolescents as compared to normals (p<0.05). However no statistically significant difference between the mean depression scores in normal versus Overweight/Obese Groups was found in the study.
