ADHD in Children Linked to Obesity in Adulthood

>PRWEB.COM Newswire

Vienna, VA (PRWEB) July 01, 2013

New research has identified a link between ADHD in children and the risk of obesity decades later. The study was released on May 20th, 2013. It is described in a Reuters article by Genevra Pittman published on May 20, 2013 which is entitled "Childhood ADHD tied to obesity decades later." The study was led by Sherry Pagoto from the Division of Preventive and Behavioral Medicine at the University of Massachusetts Medical School. The researchers conducting the study compared groups of men with ADHD to groups of men without ADHD, and found that the subjects who had ADHD were much more likely to suffer from obesity. In particular, one reason behind this that the study found was that men with ADHD consume more fast food and may be less able to sustain attempts at losing weight.

An article in Pacific Standard by Genevra Pittman entitled "Childhood ADHD Tied to Obesity Decades Later" that was published on June 25, 2013 quotes Pagano as saying that the reasons for this may be because those who suffer from obesity may make poorer decisions about what they eat. This study is in line with other research that outlines the harmful effects of obesity on those who suffer from it, and may shed light into the reasons why so many people have trouble losing weight and keeping it off.

This research and the comments by Dr. Pagoto come as the American Medical Association voted last week to consider obesity as a disease, and to recommend that those who are suffering for it obtain medical treatment. The decision by the AMA was described in an article by Melissa Healy and Anna Gorman published in the Los Angeles Times on June 18, 2013 that is entitled "AMA declares obesity a disease." According to this article, the AMA made the decision to recognize obesity as a disease because it believed that it would encourage physicians to recommend that their patients make lifestyle changes to cut down on obesity rates.

As news has emerged about the impacts of obesity on those who suffer from it, shoppharmacycounter.com is offering a summer sale of PhenObestin 37.5, a nonprescription alternative to Phentermine.
