Attention deficit hyperactivity disorder, or ADHD, is one of the most well-known childhood conditions. It often carries forward into adulthood and any adult diagnosed later in life will have struggled with the problem from childhood.

The symptoms almost always begin early in life, though some children are overlooked since the symptoms are often mild and less common. The causes of ADHD are not well-known, although considerable advances have been made in looking into the triggers. Most believe that genetics are a major component of the disorder, because the problem tends to run in families and is more likely to occur in one person if a sibling already has ADHD. Sugar, refined foods and additives to foods

are thought to make ADHD worse, but it is not clear yet how much this factors into the development and diagnosis of ADHD.

Foods are considered one of the behavioral and lifestyle elements that is possible to control, and thus is likely to help reduce the risk if symptom-causing foods are avoided. While adult ADHD is simply a late diagnosis of symptoms that have been prevalent since childhood, it is important to discuss the situation with a ADHD psychiatrist at Trifecta Health Medical Center for more details about treatment options and what foods and additives you should avoid.
