    Brenner FIT Research

    Brenner FIT® research team has conducted a number of studies in our clinic and the community to investigate the best ways families can improve their health. A complete listing of our publications can be viewed here.

    Our clinical research shows: 

    • 65% of children improve their weight status in the first stage of treatment. 
    • After graduating from Brenner FIT, most children maintain their new weight status, and more than half keep improving.
    • Children show significant improvement in triglyceride and cholesterol levels during treatment. 
    • Children from different racial and ethnic groups and geographical locations are equally successful.
    • Brenner FIT families who complete their six months of treatment show significant improvement in:
      • Health behaviors like having snacks on schedule, eating breakfast and adding activity
      • Parental feeding behaviors
      • Family dynamics and functioning
