What is ADHD?

According to the Mayo Clinic. Attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) is a common condition affecting millions of children and adults. The primary symptoms involve difficulty sustaining focus, impulsive behavior, and hyperactivity that impairs daily functioning.

Signs and Symptoms

ADHD has three subtypes – predominantly inattentive, predominantly hyperactive/impulsive, and combined type. The inattentive subtype includes challenges like being easily distracted, easily bored, disorganized, losing things often, having trouble completing homework, and frequently daydreaming. Hyperactive/impulsive ADHD involves behaviors like constantly fidgeting, excessive talking, interrupting frequently, and rushing through tasks. The combined type includes symptoms of both inattentive and hyperactive subtypes.

These behaviors can lead to problems with learning, relationships, self-esteem, and more. ADHD is typically first diagnosed in childhood but can continue impacting adults. Proper diagnosis and treatment help patients better manage symptoms.
