Screening of Adult ADHD Among Patients Presenting for Bariatric Surgery

Conclusions  The results show that adult ADHD is more common in this clinical group than in the general population (4%) and that adult
ADHD is associated with disordered eating patterns, depression, and anxiety. Further prospective research, using multivariate
analysis, is needed to investigate whether the symptoms of adult ADHD, and their interaction with anxiety, depression, or
disordered eating, may possibly constitute a risk factor in terms of difficulties in adhering to the post-surgery regime and
its potential unfavorable outcome.
