What Causes ADHD?

There are several internal and external factors that may cause attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD). Research suggests a strong link between ADHD and genetics, maternal substance abuse, premature birth, and early exposure to environmental toxins. In most cases, if a child is diagnosed with ADHD, their parents and siblings are more likely to have ADHD themselves.

What Are 3 Types of ADHD?

Although ADHD symptoms can overlap, there are three main subtypes/presentations of this condition:

  • Primary Impulsive/Hyperactive Type: This is the least common form of ADHD and is characterized by hyperactive and impulsive behaviors without inattention and distractibility.
  • Primary Inattentive and Distractible Type: This form of ADHD is characterized primarily by inattention and distractibility but without hyperactivity.
  • ADHD Combined Type: This is the most common form of ADHD and is characterized by hyperactive and impulsive behaviors as well as distractibility and inattention.
What Happens if ADHD Is Left Untreated?

People with ADHD tend to be impulsive and have a greater risk of getting injured, hospitalized, or contracting an STD. When left untreated, an adult with ADHD can experience significant problems with education, self-esteem, social and family relationships, employment, and emotional health. Fortunately, it is never too late to discover, diagnose, and treat ADHD plus any other mental health conditions associated with it.

Can a Child With ADHD Lead a Normal Life?

Children with ADHD exhibit severe and frequent behavioral problems that can interfere with their ability to live normal lives. More often, children with ADHD suffer low self-esteem and rejection, which can lead to delinquency, depression, and substance abuse later in life. However, proper care and medication can help minimize the symptoms of ADHD and improve quality of life.

What Is the Most Effective Treatment for ADHD?

Treatment for ADHD involves medication and behavioral therapy. Stimulants such as Concerta and Vyvanse are the best-known medication for ADHD in adults. Children are, however, given ADHD medication in smaller doses. Studies suggest that about 70-80% of children with ADHD exhibit fewer symptoms when taking these fast-acting medications.
