New Way To Pinpoint A-D-H-D

Posted: Updated:

(NBC) A new technique that measures iron levels in the brain may help identify kids and teens with attention deficit hyperactivity disorder.
Researchers used M-R-I to detect brain iron levels of healthy children, and  those already diagnosed with A-D-H-D. The results showed unmedicated A-D-H-D children had significantly lower brain iron levels than A-D-H-D kids taking medication and those without the condition.
If additional studies confirm these results, diagnosing A-D-H-D could become much easier and fewer children would be unnecessarily medicated.
