Dear readers,

Our journal is the official publication of Inonu University Medical Faculty and published uninterruptedly for 25 years. It was first published as the name of Inonu University Medical Journal and later as Journal of Turgut Ozal Medical Center. During its publication period, the journal accepted Turkish or English articles for publication.

Abstracting in an international index is just a paramount objective in the 25th year of the journal. Because of this goal, it was necessary to make a decision both in terms of journal name and publication language. It was important in this respect that the name of a general medical journal should be related to medicine again and it should be in English. For these reasons, the name of the journal was switched to Annals of Medical Research and its publication language is changed to in English. The logo of the journal was chosen as an apricot, which is the symbol of our city Malatya, the world capital of apricot. I hope the journal succeeds with its new name. Annals of Medical Research is published monthly.

Abstract

Aim: The study compared Skin Prick Test results in different age groups and different Body Mass Index categories, in order to investigate a possible association between allergies and pediatric obesity.
Materials and Methods: Forty-four 4-16 year-old children, who were referred to Istanbul Kagithane State Hospital with allergies and at least one positive test result, were retrospectively evaluated in cross-sectional analysis of ecological design.
Results: Children with walnut allergies had a higher Body Mass Index mean value. Twenty-eight children with walnut allergies had a BMI mean of 25.96 and sixteen children without walnut allergies had a BMI mean of 21.97. It has been suggested that Skin Prick Test is an easy method to apply in identifying allergies. The study revealed a significant difference for BMIs only in cases with walnut allergies. Mean ages of children with chicken, cocoa, white flour allergies were high. Mean age of children with chicken meat, white flour, cocoa allergies differed significantly.
Conclusion: Current research suggests that careful consideration should be given to nutritional awareness and the adoption of informed dietary practices in childhood.

Keywords: Allergy; BMI; children; teenager; public health
