ELK GROVE VILLAGE, Ill. (KSDK) - A study has been released by the American Academy of Pediatrics that shows attention-deficient/hyperactivity disorders (ADHD) could carry into adulthood for children diagnosed with the disease.

Nearly one-third of participants in the study had ADHD until they were 27-years-old, and more than half also had another psychiatric disorder.

The study took 367 childhood ADHD cases and found 29.3 percent of the participants still had ADHD into their adult lives.

According to the study, ADHD is a health problem that could cause mortality, long-term health problems, and ADHD in adulthood.
