No where honest! It is a fake condition made up by drug companies for a new drug they had come up with, and could not find a use for the drug! So they make-up this fake one!
If any doctor is willing to label you with this; best to leave them forever! Give yourself a chance to be safe!
Pray to GOD about this!
Nothing Honest! Because it is a fake condition made up by a drug company, that came with a new drug and NO use for it! So they made-up this fake condition for falsely label people and get their new drug into lots of others!
Zero Tests! Nothing close to honest!
A reliable diagnosis of ADHD can be made with well-tested diagnostic interview methods.
Diagnosis is based on history and visible behaviors in the child's normal environment. A doctor making a diagnosis should ask for input from the child, parents, teachers, and other health care providers. The doctor will collect information on a thorough history about the symptoms, and on the medical, developmental, school, psychosocial, and family histories.
He or she also will consider other causes for the problem, and review other conditions that could be present. It is helpful to find out what has prompted the request for evaluation and how the problems had been approached in the past. At this time, there is no single test for ADHD. This is not unique to ADHD, but applies to most psychiatric disorders.
Research on brain imaging has shown that the brains of children with ADHD differ from those of children without the disorder. Several brain regions and structures in children with ADHD tend to be smaller. Overall brain size is generally 5% smaller in affected children than in children without ADHD. While this average difference is seen over and over, it is too small to be used alone in making the diagnosis of ADHD in a particular person. Also, there appears to be a link between a person's ability to pay continued attention and the amount of their brain activity. In people with ADHD, the brain areas that control attention show to be less active. This suggests that lower levels of activity in some parts of the brain may be related to problems in sustaining attention.
The diagnosis of ADHD in the preschool child is possible, but can be difficult and should be made cautiously by experts well trained in childhood neurobehavioral disorders. Developmental problems, especially language delays, and adjustment problems can sometimes look like ADHD. Treatment should focus on placing the child in a structured preschool with parent training and support. Stimulants can reduce difficult behavior and improve mother-child interactions, but they usually are saved for severe cases, or when a child is unresponsive to environmental or behavioral interventions.
The AMENS clinic has an online test that is free and will tell you the percentage of possibility that you have ADHD as well as many co-morbid conditions.
The best resource I can suggest is the book "Driven to Distraction" in which the symptoms are described in great detail. You should have a pretty good idea upon completion whether or not you could have ADD/ADHD.
There are attention span tests that can and should be administered by a licensed professional once there is a reasonable assumption that you have ADHD. These, I know through experience, are not available in every city and are very expensive. Not one of the professionals in my area who offer this testing take any medical insurance and many policies will not cover this type of diagnostic exam. My advice would be to have your family doctor confirm the possibility before setting up the testing. We all have some ADHD symptoms, there is a big difference in behaviors that "can't" be controlled and "won't" be controlled.
The first one, a short list, is general, but resembles what a psychiatrist would use.
The second is longer, and more specific, and pops you into one of five Types.
However, I took the test, 3 months apart, and ended up on two different categories.
However, both categories where basically ADHD/WO (without H).
Currently, only 3 categories are accepted, but people are pressing for 5.
Diagnosis is largely Behavioral Observation. It is very subjective, when doing self evaluation.
Brain SPECT Imaging may, in the future, provide objective evaluation, especially if it becomes as affordable as mammograms. But since ADD does not cause death or disability, there may not be sufficient demand to lower those costs.
Some psychiatrists prefer to try low dosages of the common medications, before labelling someone with ADD/ADHD. This leaves other options open, and helps children and adults avoid the negative stigma, associated with "mental problem" societal stereotyping.
A counselor or a physician should be able to set you up with someone who can evaluate your behavior and performance (usually by having you take some timed and untimed logic and puzzle tests) and asking you a bunch of questions.
Psychiatrists can usually do the evaluation themselves, but if you make an appointment with one you have to make sure they are the kind that deal w/ young people and disorders like Attention Deficit.
Nothing that could be Honest!Because ADHD is a fake condition that want dreamed up by a drug company! They had made-up a new drug. Yet could not find any honest use for it! So they made-up this fake ADHD for the drug!If one is really Hyperactive; all it takes to get rid of it is to make up their Mind to NOT do it, Not be Hyperactive anymore! (Just as I did as a kid!)All it takes to get rid of the ADD is to have someone tutor the person! The learning then goes to the other side of the Brain! Just keep a person to help.Most people are Not even tested these days. Someone just announces that ____ has it and then they are falsely labeled with it!Pray to GOD for help here!
