adhd

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.
Avatar n tn What do you mean "hyperactive"? Many children are hyperactive? Some have ADHD and are actually diagnosed with it, and other children are just normal children with a ton of energy.

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 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...

13246092 tn?1429152825 No, the Vyvanse did not cause your binge eating. ADHD caused your binge eating. See this - http://www.medscape.com/viewarticle/844339 The study you are referring too did not look into if any of the binge eaters also had ADHD (too bad, that would have been important). But, stim meds have always been used for weight loss. So the results are not surprising. Anyway, that study has nothing to do with you. You feel weird when off V because you then are feeling what ADHD is like.
Avatar n tn Your son may well display ADHD, but it is important to arrange a thorough evaluation and not rush too quickly to the diagnosis. The on-line surveys can be useful tools to see if a person might display symptoms typical of ADHD, but a thorough assessment will consider a child's medical history, family history, current functioning at home and in school, possible alternative explanations for the symptoms identified on the surveys, etc.
Avatar f tn s probably no harm in eating gluten right? So I tried eating gluten after 3 years, so itchy right now, I think most of my symptoms are from my Hep C, but I defiantly think my food allergies increase my Hep C, or are symptoms on their own, or maybe I've associated this with gluten so long and It's all in my head and all my symptoms are from Hep C, I don't know but this week is going to be rough, why did I do that to myself!
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 f tn He is 12 years old and 4feet 5 inches and 75 pounds I know that the Addreal Xr has some of the affects of not eating but Endocrinenologists state that it does not interfer with growth? True or False? As he is a least 2 feet smaller than his peers?
1211960 tn?1272974502 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 He is being tested for ADHD and the neurologist asked us to change his eating habits and monitor him for 2 months. It seems like things have taken a turn for the worse and I am tired of being looked at as a bad parent. I am far from a bad parent and I want my son to be okay. In kinder and 1st grade his teachers had him on a behavior contract. I get bad notes sent home every single day and today I got a call saying that my son threw himself on the ground and started screaming.
Avatar n tn I am teacher's mother. 61 and ADHD. I benefit from medication but can't afford it now. She is also ADHD. There is a theory that this situation has a connection with L-dopa. My mother had Parkinson's, which is an L-dopa situation. I know others who had Parkinson's parents and ADHD children. More than a coincidence, I think. So, very much a biological situation. And genetic.
Avatar f tn If he is on any medications, it could be causing it (especially ADHD medication). Maybe even look at the foods he is eating to see if there may be some intolerance.
Avatar n tn Your symptoms related to impulsivenss, forgetfulness, organizational problems, and struggles with self-motivation are part of the diagnostic criteria for ADHD. A diagnosis of ADHD includes an onset of symptoms prior to age 8, as well as impairment across settings (e.g. home, work, school). Many primary care providers treat symptoms of ADHD with stimulants or alternatives such as Atomoxetine (Strattera).
Avatar m tn I always had trouble wrting essays,my mind would not work and cause distress,and also when had to read a book.Is it possible that untreated ADHD got me into this mess,and if indeed i do have ADHD and treat it with medication, will it improve my situation(i will be less anxious in certain conditions because my mind would slow down and think more organised,i would be less agitated,less impulsive,i would procrastinate less,improve my depression)?
Avatar n tn My health insurance does not cover testing for ADHD and his teacher and pediatrician want him tested. Is there an organization which helps pay for these tests? I was told by my sister that under the "No when left behind law" the school department should pay. Is this true?
Avatar m tn m eating right and exercising regularly - can an adult combat ADHD with exercise and diet WITHOUT using medications? I'm not a fan of taking pills - especially ones that are meant to regulate mood/depression.
327385 tn?1378360731 Sounds like your talking about my daughter, and she has ADHD. They started her off on Adderal XR, but she is now on Vyvance (sp). She did and does all the things you have listed, including the stealing and not knowing why. Your best bet is to try and find a peds doctor that specializes in ADD/ADHD. If she is found to have ADHD, so of the things she does might not go away, like the stealing.
Avatar n tn my daughter is not eating properly lately and has been very very tired. It seems to be getting worse. I have also noticed around the same time that she is biting her nails till they bleed. I have tried everything for this. She has asthma and is on an inhaler and singular and I am worried that may be this could be making her sick!. She has big bags under her eyes and is pale. Also I am worried about some behaviour disorder since her 10-year-old brother has ADHD and anxiety!
Avatar n tn My son is now 13. He was diagnosed with ADHD when he was in 3rd grade. I am a teacher and have done a lot of research on adhd and odd. I think he has ODD. He hates to take his concerta because it makes him lose his appetite I do see a change when on meds. He does ok in school while not on meds but when at home he is a nightmare. He fits all the classic symptoms of ODD. At home he defies everything we ask him to do and he throws fits when he does not get his way. He is very disrespectful also.
Avatar m tn running, jumping, climbing, figidity/squirm when eating or trying to carry on a conversation, talks nonstop, very loud (hard for her to control the tone of her voice), does not want to listen, when company is over she is very hyper and loud (trying to be center of attention),and when she gets excited about something she jumps as she tells you. She attends preschool 2x a wk. for 3 hrs. and the teacher says she does well.
