Abstract

Context. High heritability of body composition variables is well-known, however, longitudinal effect of genes is still unclear. Objective. The aim of this study was to investigate the pattern of longitudinal changes in anthropometric variables in a small cohort of twins. Design. Longitudinal classical twin study, performed in 2009 and in 2011 on the same twin pairs. Subjects and Methods. Eighteen healthy adult Hungarian twin pairs (13 monozygotic [MZ], 5 dizygotic [DZ]; mean age 54.0 ± 15.2 years; average body mass index 24.4±5.4 kg/m2 in 2009 and 25.1±4.7 kg/m2 in 2011, respectively) recruited from the Hungarian Twin Registry underwent bioimpedance analysis (OMRON). Results. Significant, higher positive intrapair correlations were detected in the longitudinal change in weight (p
