A third of children diagnosed with Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder will still have the condition when they are adults.
Researchers at Boston Children's Hospital studied more than 200 adults who had been diagnosed with childhood ADHD.
They found 29 percent still met the criteria for ADHD as adults. The suicide rate was also higher among childhood ADHD patients.
Researchers say doctors should not view ADHD as a disorder only affecting kids, rather it could have lifelong implications.
