Comorbidity of attention deficit and hyperactivity disorder and obesity: A systematic review


In this review, systemical evaluation of potential relationship between attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) and obesity is aimed. Based on DSM-IV or DSM-5 criteria, written in English and/or Turkish except the case reports, sistematic reviews and meta-analysis published in the Pubmed database between January 1990 and December 2017 are included in the study. Evidence based on emprical analysis suggests that subjects with ADHD are heavier than expected. Moreover, nearly all reviewed studies indicate that the prevalence of ADHD in obese patients, especially those treated in obesity clinics, may be higher than expected. Future studies will be useful in regulating the health policies and increasing the quality of life for ADHD and obesity, both of which are high-risk morbidity.
