Is it easy to diagnose ADHD? I think my child may have this condition.

Diagnosing ADHD in a child or adult is a difficult task. There is no specific test for ADHD; written, blood, or otherwise. An accurate diagnosis can only be made by a trained clinician after extensive and repetitive evaluation. It's likely that your doctor or specialist will perform a standard physical examination, medical history questionnaire, and ask you (the parent) and others (e.g. teachers, counselors, etc) to describe your child's symptoms. [top]


What other criteria does my child need to meet to be accurately diagnosed?

There are other, more specific criterion (established by the DSM-IV) that some physicians require a child or adult to meet in order to receive a definitive diagnosis of ADHD. Additionally, these symptoms must present at least 6 months, be maladaptive and inconsistent with development level, cause impairment from the symptoms, be present in two or more settings (e.g., at school {or work} and at home), and there must be clear evidence of clinically significant impairment in social, academic or occupational functioning. There are two separate categories:

Inattention:

 

 

  • Fails to give close attention to details or makes careless mistakes in schoolwork, work or other activities
  • Has difficulty sustaining attention in tasks or play activities
  • Does not seem to listen when spoken to directly
  • Does not follow through on instructions and fails to finish schoolwork, chores, or duties in the workplace (no if oppositional behavior or doesn't understand instructions)
  • Has difficulty organizing tasks and activities
  •  Avoids, dislikes, or is reluctant to engage in tasks or activities that require sustained mental effort (such as schoolwork or homework)
  •  Loses things necessary for tasks or activities (e.g., toys, school assignments, pencils, books, or tools)
  • Easily distracted by extraneous stimuli

 

  • Forgetful in daily activities

 


Hyperactivity-Impulsivity:

  • Often fidgets with hands or feet or squirms in seat Leaves seat in classroom or in other situations in which remaining seated is expected
  • Often runs about or climbs excessively in situations in which it is inappropriate (in adolescents or adults, may be limited to subjective feelings of restlessness)
  • Often has difficulty playing or engaging in leisure activities quietly
  • Is often "on the go" or often acts as if "driven by a motor"
  • Often talks excessively
  • Blurts out answers before questions have been completed
  • Has difficulty awaiting turn Interrupts or intrudes on others (e.g., butts into conversations or games) [top]

 

Is it possible for my child to be quite smart, and still suffer from ADHD?

Contrary to popular belief, intelligence and attention-deficit hyperactivity disorder are completely separate. Although it is far more likely that this condition will adversely impact intelligence (due to lapses in concentration and inability to concentrate), it's not uncommon to have a bright child who also suffers from ADHD. These children are labeled as being "
twice exceptional," as they are intelligent and suffer from and underlying condition. [top]


I've heard mixed reviews regarding nutrition and ADHD. Is it really that beneficial?

Addressing dietary inadequacies can have profound effects on ADHD, as well as many other cognitive disorders. In fact, for some ADHD patients, nutritional supplementation and/or manipulation of diet proves sufficient enough to effectively manage their condition. As each year passes, there is growing evidence highlighting the effectiveness of nutrition and nutritional supplementation in ADHD patients.

A multitude of studies show marked improvement in individuals increasing protein intakes and supplementing with essential fatty acids (EFAs). Interestingly, deficiencies of essential fats have been shown to be a risk factor for ADD or ADHD onset. Proteins and EFAs remain critical nutrients, responsible for proper growth, mental function, and immune system and brain development. [top]

What results should I expect?

 

Every person's body chemistry is different and results vary. Some notice dramatic results within the first few days, others notice gradual differences over a period of time. The average time span for starting to achieve results reported by our customers is between 30-60 days of taking our products.

Due to the fact that our products are all-natural, there is no way to accurately determine the outcome of taking our products for every customer. Our products are made from herbs, vitamins and minerals, and you will achieve the greatest results when combined with a healthy diet and light to moderate exercise. [top]

As with any supplementation program, it is wise to keep using the products on a daily basis to maintain results. [top]

Our products are manufactured in a GMP (good manufacturing practices) compliant facility. Our facility is also certified to produce pharmaceutical grade products.

Every batch is tested for safety and assigned a batch number which is printed on the bottle. We keep product samples from each batch for 10 years for testing and questions. If you ever experience an unusual reaction, stop taking the product and send us the batch number so we can test the sample for safety. [top]

How do you come up with your formulas and where are your offices?

All of our products are formulated according to independent clinical studies that test the individual ingredients. We then cross reference those studies with even more references.

We have extensive resources we can access to look up drug interactions, disease conditions, and supplements. [top]
