There may be a critical window for overweight kids to get to a healthy level.Health records were used to see how many developed diabetes in adulthood.Men who were overweight at age 7 but weren't by age 13 had similar odds of diabetes later in life as men who'd never been overweight.Those who were overweight only at 13, or only at 7 and 13, had a lower risk than those who stayed overweight throughout young adulthood but a higher risk than men who'd never been overweight.Decades ago in Denmark, only 5 percent to 8 percent of these men had been overweight as children or teens.
