The more overweight children and teens are, the more numerous and severe their headaches, according to a U.S. study.
 
But losing weight eases the frequency and severity of the headaches, the researchers said.
 
The study, conducted at seven pediatric headache centers, found that 34.1 percent of patients were either overweight (17.5 percent) or at risk of becoming overweight. That's similar to rates of overweight in the general child/teen population.
 
The researchers analyzed data collected on 913 patients at the start of the study, and again at three and six months, and found evidence of a link between weight and headaches.
