ADD/ADHD (Attention Deficit Disorder/Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder) has become one of the most common childhood disorders in the United States. However, we are now finding out that it is not only common in children, more and more adults come out to talk about them “being ADD”.
Some of the most common symptoms are:
- Inattention, easily distracted
- Difficulty focusing and concentrating
- Restlessness, trouble sitting still whether in school, at dinner or on the bus
- Difficulties waiting in line, being impatient
- Difficulties with quiet time, talking a lot
- Wanting to touch everything in sight
- Blurting out inappropriate comments without restraint
- Acting without regard for consequences
- Interrupting conversations
Some kids with ADD may be undiagnosed even if they sit quietly in class and are not disruptive. They may not be paying any attention to the schoolwork but parents and teachers don’t realize the child has ADD, they just label the child as “a little slow”.
Children with ADD/ADHD almost always have allergies to foods and to the environment and so do their families. Unfortunately, they don’t make the connection between their condition and allergies.
Most parents and teachers notice that some children go “off the walls”. They may start running like crazy, screaming and may also display aggressive behavior often after consuming cakes, candies or any kind of sugary food. Birthday parties can end quite badly with a bunch of kids who can’t behave.
This behavior may be a symptom of an allergic reaction, especially to sugars and wheat. It is not the child’s fault. It is not a voluntary behavior. Unfortunately, many of these kids are put on prescriptions drugs. They often grow up to have some kind of drug problems and still be battling ADD.
