ADD vs. ADHD
Your child has a lot of daydreams at school, and is easily distracted while doing homework or chores. You may wonder whether he has a hyperactivity / attention deficit disorder. Or is the attention deficit (ADD) condition.
Most people use the words to say the same thing-right.
ADD is a form of attention deficit hyperactivity disorder not requiring excessive fidgeting and movement. But the distinction is blurred. That’s why physicians agreed to call all types of attention-disorder “attention-/ hyperactivity disorder,” even though the patient wasn’t hyperactive. Today it is called the mixed type of ADHD, inattention type, hyperactive / impulsive type, or Attention deficit hyperactivity disorder.
ADHD in Adult
Attention deficit hyperactivity disorder affects many adults and its wide range of stressful symptoms can obstruct anything from your relationships to your job. When you were diagnosed with childhood attention deficit hyperactivity disorder, at least some of the signs could have been carried into adulthood. But even though you’ve never been diagnosed as a child, that doesn’t mean you can’t be impaired as an adult by attention deficit hyperactivity. Instead of noticing the symptoms and finding the real problem, you might have been branded as a dreamer, goof-off, slacker, troublemaker or just a poor student by the family, teachers or others.
When you were young, you may have been able to compensate for the signs of attention deficit hyperactivity disorder, only to run into difficulties as your responsibilities grew as an adult. The more balls you now want to keep pursuing a career in the air, raise a son, run a household? The bigger the need for your ability to plan, concentrate and keep calm. For anyone, this can be difficult, especially if you have ADHD, it will sound utterly impossible.
The good news is that the complexities of the attention deficit disorder are beatable, no matter how daunting it can sound. You can learn to handle adult ADHD symptoms with counselling, encouragement and a little imagination, including transforming some of your limitations into strengths.
ADHD in Children
ADHD is a neurodevelopmental disorder that occurs when the brain and central nervous system has growth-and development-related impairments. A child with attention deficit hyperactivity disorder can struggle to maintain their focus throughout the day. He or she may appear anxious and engage in conduct that is hyperactive or impulsive.
For children, ADHD may interfere with their work at school, their relationships with others, and how they see themselves in the world. Such symptoms can continue into adulthood, causing issues with work and relationships.
Symptoms have been observed in children as young as 3 and usually begin before age 12. ADHD is more common in boys than girls, and the symptoms can be mild, moderate, or severe. Depending on the person also the condition can manifest differently. Some people experience primarily inattention symptoms which are known as the’ predominantly inattentional’ subtype of ADHD.
What Causes ADHD?
The origins of ADHD remain a little vague. Was hereditary ADHD? Evidence shows that biology and descent play a significant role in deciding who gets hyperactivity disorder deficiency care. Nevertheless, scientists are still investigating whether certain genes, especially those linked to the dopamine neurotransmitter, play a specific role in developing ADHD. New evidence indicates that exposure to toxins and chemicals will raise the likelihood that a child may have ADHD.
ADHD is not caused by too many video games, too much caffeine or poor parenting. ADHD is a biological disease focused on the brain.
If you leap to conclusions, note that diagnosing ADHD isn’t as easy as that. Neither symptom of attention deficit disorder is uncommon on its own. Most people sometimes feel distracted, confused, or restless. Even chronic hyperactivity or distractiveness is not inherently comparable to ADHD.
There is no single medical, physical, or other diagnostic test for ADHD. A doctor or other health professional may need to be involved to decide whether you or your child has ADHD, so you should expect them to use a variety of different tools: a checklist of symptoms, responses to questions about past and current issues, or a medical test to rule out any causes of symptoms.
Keep in mind that the symptoms of ADHD can be associated with other conditions and medical issues, such as attention difficulties and hyperactivity. Only because it looks like ADHD doesn’t mean it is and it’s important to get a comprehensive assessment and diagnosis.
Parent instruction in behavior modification is the first line of therapy for children with attention deficit hyperactivity disorder younger than 6 years of age, before medicine is sought out. The guidelines for children 6 years of age and older include treatment and behavior counseling along with parent training in behavior management for children up to 12 years of age and other forms of behavior therapy and adolescent training. Schools can also be a part of the treatment.
Effective treatment strategies should provide careful observation of whether and how much the medication affects the actions of the child along the way, as well as making adjustments as necessary.

Normal Benefits for ADHD
The fatty acids Omega-3. Compliance counseling Zinc. Training to the brain. Foods rich in proteins and low in sugar. Health practitioners prescribe a variety of natural ADHD therapies that may help relieve symptoms of attention deficit hyperactivity disorder, in conjunction with medication.
ADHD Behavioral Therapy
Behavioral treatment for ADHD is a standardized intervention technique aimed at teaching children better ways to behave by rewarding desirable habits, such as following instructions, and removing undesirable acts, such as missing homework. The first line of treatment for children with ADHD older than five will be behavioral therapy. It can also be useful for older kids.
Omega-3 ADHD – Fatty Acids
The omega-3 fatty acids found in fish oil are important in the functioning of brain and nerve cells. The body itself can not produce omega-3 fatty acids, so people must get them from food, supplements and vitamins. It is particularly important for individuals with ADHD, who may have low nutritional levels.
Protein used to treat ADHD.
A nutritionally balanced ADHD diet is a effective method for treating ADHD symptoms. Protein activates neurotransmitters that promote alertness, while carbohydrates cause drowsiness. Protein also avoids blood sugar spikes that can worsen the hyperactivity. High-fiber foods like fruit and vegetables, whole grains, and legumes can help to balance energy levels.
A low-fat breakfast will increase its potency if you or your child is taking a stimulant drug. Fats can cause the body to absorb the drug more slowly, thus reducing the efficacy of the drug. Begin the day with a breakfast that provides a combination of complex carbohydrates and protein such as whole-wheat toast, eggs or whole grain yoghurt pancakes.
Working out with ADHD
Exercising makes the brain function of ADHD more efficiently and effectively. A significant advantage of exercise is an improvement in endorphins, which can boost mood. Exercise also elevates the dopamine, norepinephrine, and serotonin levels in the brain, which improves concentration and attention. Walking four days a week for 30 minutes will also do the trick and skill-activities such as martial arts or ballet are especially successful for those with ADHD.

Is ADHD a disability?

Teachers should chart personalized instructions for a student with ADHD to help alleviate any impact on children’s learning. It may involve providing additional time for tasks and exams, or creating a scheme of personal reward.
ADHD and depression
It can go hand in hand with attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) and depression. Doctors also call them co-existing comorbid disorders, which means you can have both at the same time.
ADHD is a brain disease that makes attention difficult. Children and adults who have it can find it difficult to complete tasks, sit still or keep track of events, appointments, or information.
Some signs of ADHD and depression are almost the same and this may make diagnosis and treatment of these conditions difficult. One of the symptoms of both depression and ADHD, for example, is concentration disorder. So if you are taking medications to deal with the symptoms of ADHD, they can affect the sleep or eating patterns–which can also be indicators of depression. Hyperactivity and irritability may be signs both of depression and of ADHD in children.
There are also ways you can handle the symptoms effectively.
ADHD is not a death sentence, it is merely a way of wired the brain.
Acceptance of your condition is important because it paves the way for meaningful change, like thinking about ADHD and discovering solutions that work for you. Acceptance isn’t about enjoying every part of everything. It means you accept it is what it is.
Take strong self
People with ADHD appear to be hyper-that they really like and can forget to sleep, rest, and even go to the bathroom, see if you’re thirsty, hungry, exhausted, or have a full bladder. Make sure to be prepared, too. For starters, if you tend to forget to eat and suddenly feel ravenous, bring along snacks.
Exercising is also important to ADHD. Exercises every day as it helps to concentrate mind and get a good night rest.
Good care of your wellbeing makes all the rest easier to handle. If self-comes first, it would be easier for us to be able to deal with our ADHD by developing new routines and creating more order in our everyday lives.
Get plenty of sleep
Not having enough sleep will aggravate the symptoms of ADHD. Tiredness affects your attention span, memory and complex problem solving, for example. Sometimes, it’s hard to tell whether the medicine works when you haven’t had a good night sleep.
Unfortunately, people with ADHD appear to have sleep disorders or sleep disturbances. Fortunately, sleep disorders can be treated. Often just changing your habits is all you need.
Using pill containers
People with attention deficit hyperactivity disorder often appear to fail to take their medication twice. Buying and filling three containers of pills a week at the same time. It not only keeps you safe but it also lets you know when you run out of drugs.
Monitor the impulses
People with attention deficit hyperactivity disorder are at higher risk for various addictions. Understanding where your limitations are and finding sources of healthy reinforcement to keep the energy of your mind up, like music, exercise, humour and puzzles.
Setting your phone or computer alarm or using a kitchen timer to warn that it is time to move tasks, if you appear to lose track on time.
Have a clock in the bathroom
This way you can make sure you don’t linger too long, think of the next new idea, or get carried away with your karaoke practice. Look for suction cup clocks that stick to a tile or mirror.
