What is ADHD?

ADHD is a neurological disorder that affects areas of the brain responsible for attention, self-regulation, and goal-directed behaviors. In addition to making it hard to pay attention, ADHD causes hyperactive and impulsive behaviors. The condition also creates challenges when it comes to organizing activities and regulating your mood.

Signs of ADHD appear before the age of 12, but children aren’t always diagnosed with the condition until they reach their teens or adulthood. For many, the challenges of ADHD persist throughout adulthood.

In children, teens, and adults, ADHD leads to symptoms that interfere with their daily life. They struggle to create relationships, and children often fall behind in school. 

What symptoms occur in people with ADHD?

There are two types of ADHD symptoms, inattentive and hyperactive-impulsive. People with ADHD may have one or both types. 

Inattentive ADHD symptoms

Difficulty paying attention is the primary problem, but this category includes other symptoms. Children and adults may have a hard time focusing long enough to complete a task. They may not be able to organize a task well enough to successfully do it. They also tend to miss important details and lose things.

At every age, people diagnosed with ADHD often have a poor working memory. As a result, they can’t keep several pieces of information in their memory long enough to remember a series of instructions or the steps they should take to solve a problem. 

Hyperactive-impulsive ADHD symptoms

If you or your child has hyperactive-impulsive symptoms, you struggle with challenges such as: 

  • Talking excessively
  • Being constantly on the go
  • Having poor impulse control
  • Feeling impatient or restless
  • Having a hard time taking turns or waiting
  • Interrupting conversations
  • Struggling to sit still or always fidgeting

People with ADHD may find it hard to control their behaviors and emotions. 

How is ADHD treated?

Dr. Singh takes a holistic approach to ADHD. He considers every variable that affects your mental health, including your physical health and lifestyle concerns such as diet and exercise. Then he works with you to create a treatment plan that manages each area.

Treatment for ADHD typically begins with medications and behavioral therapy. Medications help many people by boosting their attention and thinking processes. Behavioral therapy focuses on specific challenges. For example, therapy can help you learn skills that improve socialization, ways to manage behavioral and emotional problems, and techniques to improve organization.

Dr. Singh may also recommend complementary treatments such as dietary changes and meditation. Changes in your eating plan can significantly improve ADHD symptoms. And even young children can learn mindfulness practices that help them focus and calm down.
