Men who were diagnosed with ADHD as children are two times more likely to be obese as adults, according to a study in the journal Pediatrics.
Researchers say some of the symptoms of ADHD could lead to poor eating choices, like a lack of impulse control and poor planning skills.
An inability to stick to a scheduled eating pattern could also be a cause of obesity.
They are advising pediatricians to monitor boys with ADHD for obesity.
