The person can only be diagnosed with ADHD when he/she is born.
ADHD is incurable.
If a person displays many symptoms of ADHD [see related questions] one could suggest a person has ADHD. In some cases, such as inattentive subtypes of ADHD a person would not display obvious external symptoms. Only a doctor can confirm a diagnosis of ADHD.
Many with ADHD have also reported outburts of rage. Although, a person can have ADHD, and not have intense rage.
Not necessarily. hyperactivity is a part of ADHD but hyperactivity it self is not adhd. This must be diagnosed by a medical professional and the subject may have adhd or is just a hyper type of person.

ADHD more often affects male children than female children. However, ADHD has an in-direct affect on the families that have the challenge of an ADHD child.
No, ADHD is not infectious. It is not a virus, but a lack of growth in certain regions of the brain; a person with ADHD has underdeveloped brain regions that control focus, attention, and planning.

Several different diets can minimize the symptoms of ADHD. These include a gluten free diet and low sugar diet. You can learn more about diets for ADHD here: http://www.adhdawareness.com/control-ADHD-with-diet.html.
SSRI's are used to treat depression; there has been no clinical data to indicate they are useful for treating ADHD. However, in some cases they are prescribed to a person with ADHD who suffers from depression.
The symptoms change with age. A younger person with ADHD might be fidgety, run and climb on things, as well as have difficulty remaining still or quiet in times where it is appropriate. A person with ADHD in their teenage years might appear restless, procrastinate, and not complete responsibilities. An adult with ADHD might have difficulty focusing, forgetful of planned events, and be disorganized.
The severity of ADHD is determined by analyzing the amount symptoms they possess, and how these various symptoms interact to create problems in a person's daily day-to-day functioning. A person who has ADHD and is unable to function within work, school, and interpersonal relationships would have a severe case of ADHD. A person with some forgetfulness but who could still maintain healthy relationships and a job would be considered to have a mild case of ADHD.
Potentially; most individuals with ADHD have more thoughts in general due to lacking the ability to tune out distractions, but this does not necessarily apply to everyone with ADHD. Positive attributes of ADHD cited are often creativity and zany outlooks on life.
No person should be forced into any special treatment or system without their consent. If a school environment specialized for a person with ADHD is available, a person with ADHD should be allowed to choose whether he or she would want to attend. In most cases, special schools aren't needed to treat ADHD. The most proven methods include psychotherapy, lifestyle changes, and medication.
The brain of somebody with ADHD works differently to the average person, as such; stimulants will calm them down while tranquilizing agents can stimulate them. Cannabis (marijuana) usually calms the average person, and so would most probably stimulate an individual who suffers from ADHD or ADD.
