Re: [IP] A curious question about hyper active kids and diabetes



Ritalin (correct spelling) is a commonly prescribed medication for children
diagnosed with attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) and/or
attention deficit disorder (ADD).  To the best of my knowlege, no studies
have linked an association with ritalin and development of DM.
