Common Questions and Answers about Adhd symptoms eating


Avatar n tn I had a friend who recently tried an elimination diet and slowly added foods back that she eats regularly, she found out that she was allergic to wheat, rhy, some flour products, sweeteners, etc. that were causing the ADHD symptoms... She has since started eating whole foods and good fats and her symptoms have vastly improved... It could be something as little as the dyes in foods, or sweeteners, etc...
Avatar f tn I have heard of ADHD symptoms, I heard that it is much more easier to have fights if you have ADHD also ADHD kids act mostly, hyper, either violent(Not all), Overreacting over mainly little things. Sometimes they wonder in there own world. Having Aspergers can be different in many ways, Aspergers is when your child is having emotional problems maybe even getting embarrassed, shy, difficult education maybe even speech problems.
Avatar f tn they also eliminate harmful food substances like artificial additives, gluten and wheat, which are known to trigger ADHD symptoms. Going on an ADHD diet will mean having to give up a lot of favorite foods, like pasta and ice cream, but it doesn’t necessarily have to mean eating bland, boring food forever.
1211960 tn?1272978102 I took a self test to deterime which kind of ADHD I had ( there are 6 different kinds.) The test results showed that I had Ring Of Fire ADHD. I was researching this specific type of ADHD and this is what I found: Type 6 -- The Ring of Fire. Cross between ADHD and bipolar disorder. Characterized by moodiness, aggressiveness, and anger. Anticonvulsants or newer antipsychotic medications tend to work better than stimulants. Now I am starting to doubt my diagnosis of bipolar.
Avatar n tn ADHD tends to run in families and most adults don't realize they have it until they have a child that is diagnosed with it. About 60% of children with ADHD continue to have symptoms after the age of 18....There is a lot of debate about the disorder being possibly underdiagnosed in adults, especially in women. The numbers are around 4-6% of adults are thought to have ADHD and only 1-3% are diagnosed...
1453183 tn?1287852619 My son has been diagnosed with having ADD/ADHD and was put on Atterall and then a year ago the doctors took him off the medication and his schooling has suffered because of it. My question is would home schooling him help him or hurt him in anyway? And What else can I do to teach my child how to help control his symptoms?
Avatar f tn Been reading a lot about foods that irritate ADHD and help with the symptoms. Also have been seeing a lot of postings about supplements/vitamins to use to help control ADHD symptoms. My son is 6 and has ADHD. Anyone out there with successful foods/supplements/vitamins that help? Thoughts?
Avatar m tn I have been diagnosed with both acid reflux, and inflamatory colitis, anxiety, and depression, as well as ADHD. Lately I have been experiencing (roughly once a month for 1-2 days) Nausea with flu like symptoms. I have trouble with my extremities (Hands and feet) being cold on a regular basis and they have been refered to as a "dead Mans hands" on more than one occasion. I always feel exhuasted, no matter how much rest I get.
Avatar n tn The pysc doc told me I have ADD and alot of docs misdiagnos because bi-polar and ADD have alot of the same symptoms. You sound alot like me and my symptoms. I have been reading a book that has been very helpful and amazing and think you could benifet from it." Driven to Distraction" Recognizing and coping with ADD By Edward M Hallowell,M.D.,and John J. Ratey,M.D.
Avatar m tn When she is engrossed with her work, she skipped her meals a lot of time, she is quite forgetful when it comes to her eating routine. She has also told me several times that the one thing she can't stand is: spontaneity/surprises. It could be that she is just an introvert, she has abandonment issues as a kid and was also in an emotionally-abusive relationship years back ago. However, I have genuine concern for her and would like to hear whether she needs to see a doctor for adult ADHD/Autism?
Avatar m tn For about a year and a half, I was abusing an ADHD medication; specifically, a generic methylphenidate (10mg) that I would crush and snort. There were some days when I would do 2 or 3 of them, but I would also sometimes go weeks without doing it at all. I was going through a very hard time in my personal life, and I found (as I'm sure many people do) that this method of drug administration gave me a pleasant, energetic feeling. I quit doing this about 3 months ago.
Avatar f tn Is their anyway that you can get him to some therapy without him knowing where you are going. With ADD/ADHD, symptoms tend to get better when you get older, but of course not for everyone. I have ADD and am 34 years old. It is tough even on meds. I am an argumentative person but have definitely learned to control it. I had to see a therapist to understand that I am the one that needs to be in control of what I do. You may need to step in and send him to a institution.
Avatar n tn There are lots of reasons why kids misbehave, but I am curious who gave the ADHD/Bipolar diagnosis. The two often coexist and the symptoms you describe sound like both, although a thorough assessment of all of his behavior and his developmental history is necessary to accurately diagnose.
Avatar f tn Hey Kelly, one of the symptoms of ADHD is a lack of filters and impulsiveness. Both of those things can lead to anger outburts. Basically it makes it harder for you to count to 10. Ritilin gave you that time. But I would think at your age that you can learn to deal with it. And yes, I would think that Anger Management classes would give you some of those skills. However, you need to know what your triggers are.
571167 tn?1223218065 Definitely get another opinion if you feel strongly about not wanting medication...there are effective ways to treat symptoms of ADHD, etc without meds...and if you like working with the children's hospital clinic, then again discuss this with them. You're the mother and you know what your son needs best. Hope i didn't ramble too much and best wishes.
1455599 tn?1285511500 Many parents of ADHD kids have found that by having their child's tonsils and adenoids removed, their child's ADHD symptoms decreased significantly. Some of them, when tested a year after surgery, were no longer considered to have ADHD. I have a 3 1/2 year old who was diagnosed with ADHD and ODD in June of last year. After seeing info on the tonsil and adenoid thing and my husband having sleep apnea, I decided to have my son examined by an ENT.
Avatar n tn Hello, I suffer from anxiety and OCD and likely have ADHD. I believe I have ADHD as years ago when I was in primary school the teaches told my parents that I should go on medication to focus due to my disruptions in class and I was placed in a "special" class for a number of years. My parents refused to put me on medication. I simply came accostomed to my way of thinking. Over the years I suffered from restless energy and did not focus very well.
Avatar m tn He has just had them repeated, but has only been with his teachers for 2 weeks so it's too early to report. He has symptoms of several disorders-ADHD, Aspergers, bi-polar, OCD, ODD. Our biggest problem is that everyone focuses on his school work where he is a straight A student and has attended the magnet school for the gifted. I am not at all concerned about his academic abilities. I am extremely concerned about his social skills.
Avatar n tn My son also has (SID) Sensory Intergation Disorder. Some ADHD children have that and most parents do not know. My son has eating issues with food. he does not like 90 % of food. We thought he would grow out of it. He hates ketcup and all candy , He only like certain suckers. He eats mostly yellow stuff. The color of the food his brain reacts to. Google ( SID ) if you do not understand what that is. So to the tea comment, If I could give him tea I would. I wish he liked food.
Avatar f tn My son is 10 yrs old & has been diagnosed with ADHD since he was 6. He has been on Focalin, Adderall, Ritalin, Metadate & currently is taking Vyvanse. He takes 70 mg in am with 10 mg of Prozac & @ 3pm he takes 20 mg of Ritalin mainly so he can focus & concentrate on his homework because the Vyvanse wears off about that time. Then, about an hour before bedtime he takes 0.1 of Clonopine to help him sleep. If he doesn't take it then he is up all night.
Avatar n tn My doctor said it can assist in raising small amounts of dopamine in the brain, which people with ADHD lack. So it wont cure ADHD or ne thin but it cant hurt not taking it, i mean if it can assist in controlling the symptoms, why not! The only issue here would be the fact the tablets r quite huge!
1390055 tn?1365618655 This disease is triggered by eating gluten (wheat, rye, or barley). The symptoms disappear when a person stops eating these. That's all. There aren't any drugs to help with the condition, which unfortunately means that drug companies aren't funding a lot of continuing education about it, so many doctors aren't aware of the new information about the disease.
Avatar m tn Finally, an FDA panel has agreed that food dyes are responsible for rotten behavior and even ADHD-like symptoms in at least some kids... but don't expect them to actually do anything about it. Instead of calling for warning labels or even an outright ban on artificial colors as some scientists and parents groups want, the panel called for more research. That's code for "we're getting uncomfortably close to upsetting our pals in the food industry, so let's stop right here.
Avatar n tn Please let people know that the Feingold diet has been used for 25 years as a treatment for ADHD and other behavioral disorders, as well as helping many of the physical symptoms that frequently accompany ADHD such as asthma, bed wetting, chronic ear infections, migraines, etc. There remains a pervasive myth that the diet has been "debunked" and that it does not work, or that it is "unproven" or has "no scientific support." I repeat -- this is a MYTH.
Avatar n tn My daughter sees a child psychiatrist 2x/mth. She also takes Strattera for ADHD. The Strattera is definately better than Adderall for the weight issue but doesn't seem to control the behavior as well. My daughter tends to have mood outbursts frequently. She changes clothes 10x a day.(not kidding) and keeps her room in disarray most of the time. I can't get her behavior to settle down and she is bored a lot.
Avatar f tn Hello. This is my first time here. Can an adult still be diagnosed with ADHD or ADD if they did well in school throughout their childhood, high school, and college? I had to study very hard but I did well (except for math & sciences) I have always thought I have ADD or ADHD because I have a hard time with jobs, following directions, concentrating, sitting still, etc. I never finish projects.
Avatar m tn Richard Saul March 14, 2014 Over the course of my career, I have found more than 20 conditions that can lead to symptoms of ADHD, each of which requires its own approach to treatment. Raising a generation of children—and now adults—who can't live without stimulants is no solution.
Avatar f tn A child who is gifted and a child who has ADHD have many of the same symptoms...they just need to be physically tired out with sports and stimulation. Also food dyes have been linked to hyperactivity and some kids cannot tolerate food dyes so well. It sounds like his Mom is just not coping well being on her own and needs someone to step in to help.....The hearing voices part might be due to being over medicated and somebody please needs to step in for the sake of that poor child!.
Avatar n tn I have a nine year old daughter who shows almost all of the symptoms of adhd. She is also defiant and aggressive with her brother, this started about 1 1/2 yrs ago. She also has syncope episodes when she gets upset. We had everything checked out with a cardiologist, no problems. Her pediatrician put her on 15mg of Adderall XR, she was totally zombified, couldn't function. Then we tried 5mg of Adderall XR, after 5 days on the medication, she put her own life in danger as well as mine.
