Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD) Print E-mail
by Ron Kennedy, M.D., Santa Rosa, CA

Dr. Kennedy Attention deficit hyperactivity disorder is a group of related chronic neurobiological disorders that interfere with an individual's capacity to regulate activity level (hyperactivity), inhibit behavior (impulsivity), and attend to tasks (inattention) in developmentally appropriate ways. The term "attention deficit hyperactivity disorder" is abbreviated and usually referred to as ADHD. The core symptoms of ADHD include an inability to sustain attention and concentration, developmentally inappropriate levels of activity, distractibility, and impulsivity. There is a strong suspician that the extraordinary intake of simple sugar found in present day America is behind the radical increase in incidence of this syndrome.
