OTC Drugs May Work Differently in Obese Kids

Fat parents have fat kids.

Children who are overweight or obese appear to metabolize over-the-counter drugs differently than normal-weight children, a new study finds.

This could result in complications at both ends of the spectrum, whether kids' bodies end up with more drug than they need or less.

"There could be severe implications," said L'Aurelle Johnson, senior author of the research, which was to be presented Tuesday in Anaheim, Calif., at a meeting of the American Society for Pharmacology and Experimental Therapeutics, part of the Experimental Biology 2010 conference.
Kudos, fatsos.
