A 33 year study revealed that the obesity rate of men with a history of childhood ADHD is 19.5% higher than those who did not. These individuals also had, on average, a higher Body Mass Index. The researchers believe this difference is likely due to the poor impulse control experienced by people with ADHD, which leads to excessive eating.
