According to new study “Preemies more likely to develop anxiety, depression, ADHD”

Preemies are more likely to develop psychiatric problems such as anxiety, depression and attentive-deficit/hyperactivity disorder (ADHD), says new research from McMaster University.

It also showed life-saving steroids taken by mothers before giving birth to preemies — babies born prematurely at extremely low birth weights — also had a significant
impact: without them, children are less likely to develop alcohol dependency and substance abuse problems. With them, any protection from alcohol dependency disappears, and the prevalence of psychiatric problems in preemies is amplified.

Published Monday in the journal Pediatrics, lead author Dr. Ryan Van Lieshout said the research will “help us better predict, detect and treat mental disorders in the population.”
