Common Questions and Answers about Add testing

adhd

Avatar f tn My child has a focus issue and we believe ADD is an issue. The school is trying to stall on the testing. What should we do---don't want to waste anymore time. Are there private testing centers in the Western PA area?
Avatar f tn Should we go to a pscychiatrist, pcsychologist with comp testing or a Neurologist exp with ADD? I understand she needs testing and not just questioners to fill out for an accurate diegnosis as to what the proplem is.
459210 tn?1237381603 my question is this, how do you get tested for add? where do you get tested? and which doctor gives you add medicine if you need it? what is the test like ? do they just ask questions? i know i have it and it would be nice to read a book...
Avatar m tn You are definitely not the only one going through this at the school. The testing should be done by them. I know that in public schools testing can be forced through federal laws and I would think (but not positive) that something like that would be true for any college that accepts federal funding. Hope this helps.

You might want to check the sugar content on your cereal, even seemingly healthy types like corn flakes, sugar is often the second ingredient! Then the only other solution is to lower portion of both cereal and fruit. But yes, cereal, in my experience raises my numbers more than any other food I eat!
Avatar f tn Also, just wanted to add this: I had a second possible exposure halfway thru my PEP, I completed my PEP and I assume the testing guidelines remain the same in this stuation...or could this have extened window period. THanks...
Avatar m tn This is a risk assestment page and if a person has a risk we advise on testing. When someone does not have a risk we don't advise on testing.
Avatar n tn Sounds normal to me, to be honest. She's only 6------ it is difficult to block out all things and completely focus when in a noisy (which they all kind of are at that age) classroom. Is she doing fine with her work?? Is school coming to you with complaints? If not, then I would not make this into a big deal. If you think about it, we all have a subconsious as well that 'speaks' to us. Totally normal but a hard thing for a young child to verbalize.
Avatar f tn His teachers have told me he has a difficult time focusing in class and they have for years but they have never come right out and say you should get him tested. I have believed for a long time probably since he was 3 that he has add and or adhd. My son is quite hyper most of the time unless he is playing a video game or watching a program on tv. He is also having a hard time learning to read he can a little bit but he has a low reading level for a grade 2er.

I started getting horrible migraines and more. Now I am having my add-back compounded without any of the ingredients that I cannot have and there is a long list.

Avatar n tn First I had a confrence with her teachers and they suggested ADD. Then I took her to her pediatrician and he refered her to a Psychiatrist. I want her to be evaluated before I jump to medication or special classes. I was told that it could just be a learning disability. She has trouble remembering what she reads, but can remember when you read to her. Im also going to take her to a counselor. I thought that after getting an evaluation, that coaching and counseling might help.
Avatar f tn s foot, no burning/itching, etc. Without knowing any of this, would she be diagnosed with ADD? How much of the ADD symptoms would go away with changing her diet? Teacher recommends testing for learning disabilities. Would malnutrition be detected in any of these tests?
Avatar m tn Hi Maata, As I haven;t seen your previous question I can't really add anything as to that regard. But as for testing a good indication as to your status is to test around the 6 week mark. However you would still need to test at the three month mark for a conclusive result.
Avatar f tn I also want to add that most doctors won't even test your blood for pregnancy unless you are extremely late or are getting positives at home and need assurance you're not going to miscarry (in the event you've experienced one or more in the past).
Avatar m tn you know the answer to your question...move on...you do not have hiv.
Avatar m tn HELLO does anyone know how acurate those rapid test are for hiv i had one done at the clinic it was a clearview test it took a drop of my blood from my finger and in 15 minutes it came back negative but it was a trainee doing the test he had gloves on but he ran out of the buffer drops they add in the blood and stopped to get a new bottle and continued are those test fool proof ???
Avatar f tn At this point your partner needs to go and get treated for trich and chlamydia and you probably will need retreated too at this point. You really shouldn't have had any sex at all until your partner and you had both been treated for a full week. You and your partner will also need type specific herpes igg blood testing done since you didn't have a lesion culture done. See who has what and go from there.
Avatar f tn Have you had antibody testing, c-peptide and insulin levels testing? This would be interesting to know, as possibly you are type 1 not type 2. For insulin, bottom line is, you need to normalize blood sugars. When this cannot be done with oral meds and diet (seriously look into strict low carb eating if you are not already) and exercise (exercise decreases insulin resistance), and keeping weight on target, then it is time to add insulin.
Avatar m tn Sorry forgot to add this. This test was apparently ordered as well but doesnt seem to have any results. Blood work was done 2 days ago. Any insight you can provide here would be appreciated! Thanks!
