If Kid’s ADHD Continues Into Adulthood…

Posted Mar 07 2013 9:11pm

Here’s a study which reports that 29% of children with ADHD go on to have ADHD as adults. I’ve written extensively about how a significant portion of kids with ADHD have undiagnosed obstructive sleep apnea. In fact, in one study , taking out tonsils and adenoids cured 50% of children with ADHD. Clearly, not all ADHD is related to a sleep-breathing problem, but even if it’s due to sleep apnea in 50%, or 25%, or even 10%, wouldn’t it be worthwhile to at least screen for it?
