Premature birth linked to ADHD risk


Washington, SANA- A recent medical study revealed that a prematurely born child may be accompanied by medical problems related to high blood pressure


A recent medical study revealed that a premature baby may have medical problems associated with a higher risk of developing attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) due to immature brain development.

According to the study published in the Journal of Pediatrics, a team of researchers from Rutgers Robert Wood Johnson College of Medicine in the United States analyzed the data of about 1,400 children, a cohort study of childbirth in the United States that took random samples of births in 75 hospitals in 20 large cities over a period of three years. She re-interviewed the mothers over the course of nine years.

During follow-up, consent was obtained to contact the children's teachers who were asked to rate their students. The researchers found that children born as early as 37 and 38 weeks scored significantly higher on teacher rating scales than children born between 39 and 41 weeks.

The researchers showed that each week of gestational age was associated with 6 percent fewer hyperactivity scores and 5 percent fewer ADHD and cognitive problems or inattention scores, and that giving birth at 37 to 38 weeks was associated with 23 percent higher hyperactivity and insufficient scores. Attention is 17 percent higher compared to delivery at 39 to 41 weeks.
