First, check that you typed the quote correctly.  For example, there is a period missing after 'lesions'.

 

Next, if it is still incorrect, you can edit the direct quote.  All you should do is make the edit and put it in brackets.  For example:

 

Some studies have shown that children from three to eight years old already have vascular lesions. In addition to physical health problems[,] children who are overweight or obese suffer from social discrimination, low self-esteem[,] and lower equality of life.
