Dairy products, many processed foods, and fish are believed to contribute to ADHD symptoms.

Can ADHD be misdiagnosed?

Yes. Because the symptoms of ADHD, i.e. tendency to be easily distracted, impulsiveness, hyperactivity, difficulty concentrating, etc., can stem from other sources, some people are misdiagnosed with ADHD. It is not uncommon for parents to try to blame bad behavior (or bad parenting) on supposed ADHD. Some symptoms of ADHD are also simliar to Tourette's Syndrome, e.g. apparently impulsive, inappropriate behavior. It is also common for kids with ADHD to be just labeled as rowdy, rude, stupid, or "bad". Taken together, these two situations suggest that ADHD is both overdiagnosed and underdiagnosed (a lot of kids are being treated for it that don't have it and a lot of kids who have it are not getting any help for it).


Can a teenager be diagnosed with ADHD?

Absolutely. Anyone can be diagnosed with ADHD at any age. The essential thing, though, is that the symptoms had been there since you were seven years old or younger. Many people live with ADHD for years, even into adulthood, only to figure out on their own that the problems they were experiencing were due to something that was actually treatable.
