The article describes a clinical case of progressive obesity with early development of complications and cardiometabolic risk in a 19-year-old patient with an analysis of the course features and identification of the most likely factors that cause these features. Particular attention was paid to the analysis of heart rate variability indicators in relation to the age and phenotype of the patient. Authors accessed prognostic significance of these indicators in a personalized approach to the patient. Both metabolic and regulatory disorders were diagnosed in the patient, which indicate the tension of regulatory mechanisms, which in the near future may lead to maladjustment of the body, an increase in the risk of developing other concomitant diseases and, first of all, an increase in the risk of early development of cardiovascular diseases.
