BROOKLYN - A new study finds that men who had childhood attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) may be at greater risk of obesity.

The study, published in the Journal of Pediatrics, found that boys with ADHD were at greater risk for becoming obese and having high body mass index levels.

Researchers limited the study to white men, so it's not yet clear whether women or people from other ethnic groups would be at the same risk.
