New Study finds Deeper ADHD Risks - Elevated Lead and Chelation for Children

[fa icon="calendar'] May 30, 2019 6:59:24 AM / by Isadora Guggenheim

Recent Scandinavian population compiled a data source that has provided new insights into ADHD and its associated risks of suicidal behavior, accidents and early mortality. 

What is being discussed is whether or not ADHD is what puts the elevated risk for early mortality or if it's the use of ADHD medications. "Dr. Larsson was senior author of a Swedish national registry study that identified 51,707 patients with ADHD matched by sex and birth year to 258,535 controls. The ADHD patients had significantly higher rates of both attempted and completed suicide. Previous studies have also found links between ADHD and the likeliness to engage in risk-taking behaviors, including substance abuse, criminality, risky sexual behavior and accidents which are themselves associated with early mortality. "

Did you know that elevated lead is associated with ADD and ADHD?

Accidents were the most common cause of death. Could ADHD medications modify this risk of fatal accidents?
