What is ADHD?

ADHD stands for attention-deficit hyperactivity disorder. It is amongst the more common forms of neurodevelopment disorders. A behavioral disorder, ADHD generally tends to start in childhood and can follow through in adulthood as well. The three key aspects of ADHD are inattention, hyperactivity, and impulsiveness.

When do the symptoms of ADHD start?

The symptoms of ADHD tend to manifest around the time when children are starting school when learning and behavioral changes start. However, some people might not get a diagnosis till adulthood when they continue to have problems with unresolved ADHD.

What are the symptoms of ADHD in children?

ADHD can be harder to pinpoint in children, as they are fidgety, to begin with. However, those with ADHD have greater issues and are accompanied by symptoms other than restlessness. These include:

  • Carelessness
  • Disruptive behavior
  • Boredom
  • Fidgeting
  • Habit of daydreaming
  • Inattentiveness
  • Impatience
  • Inability to remember things
  • Issues getting along with others
  • Less impulse control
  • Problem taking turns
  • Risky behavior

It is also important to note that ADHD is on a spectrum; while some children have mild symptoms, others have more aggressive ones. Moreover, the exact presentation might also depend on the type of ADHD.

What are the symptoms of ADHD in adults?

Adult ADHD symptoms are different from those that are present during childhood, and are also less clear, which can make it difficult to get a diagnosis. The ADHD symptoms in adults include less hyperactivity but impulsiveness is persistent.

It also presents as a difficulty to be still and inactive. ADHD in adults also causes difficulty paying attention. Other symptoms of ADHD in adults include:

  • Disorganization
  • Focus issues
  • Low threshold for frustration
  • Mood swings
  • Multitasking is challenging
  • Quick temper
  • Planning problems
  • Restlessness
  • Stress management issues
  • Time management issues

What are the types of ADHD?

There are three ADHD types; predominantly inattentive, predominantly hyperactive-impulsive, and combined type. According to research published in ERIC, 7.5% of the children in UAE have combined type of ADHD whereas 3.5% had predominantly hyperactive-impulsive type of ADHD. 1.5% were diagnosed with combined type.

The presentation of each ADHD type is different. Salient features of these include:

Predominantly inattentive

The hallmark of this type is inattentiveness. People suffering from this type have a hard time completing tasks, following instructions, and focusing on even daily, mundane activities.

Predominantly hyperactive-impulsive

People with this type of ADHD have trouble being still; they are fidgety all the time. Similarly, they are also impulsive, so might do inappropriate things. They are also more likely to run into problems as well.

Combined

In combined type of ADHD, both aforementioned types of ADHD are present in the patient.

What causes ADHD?

The exact causes of ADHD are unknown. While there is evidence to suggest that there are structural differences in the brains of people having ADHD from those who do not, nothing concrete has been found yet.

However, certain factors can increase the risk of ADHD. These include:

  • Genetics play a big role; ADHD can run in families
  • Babies who are born prematurely or with low birth weight.
  • Babies born to mothers who have a history of substance or alcohol abuse during pregnancy.
  • Certain environmental factors during childhood like lead exposure.
  • Developmental problems in the central nervous system.
  • Brain injury or trauma to the brain

How do you know if you have ADHD?

The question that is common amongst people is how do I know if I have ADHD. Some might even do an ADHD quiz and self-diagnose. Some people think that just because they are unable to concentrate, they have ADHD, which is an oversimplification.

For a proper ADHD diagnosis, you need to have the signs of ADHD. Even then, only an expert will run tests and give you a diagnosis.

How is ADHD diagnosed?

The disorder is not diagnosed with just one ADHD test; diagnosis is a comprehensive process. Doctors first conduct a thorough medical evaluation, so that any health conditions can be ruled out.

Then, the ADHD signs are checked, and the history of these symptoms is taken into account. The expert might also consult caregivers and even teachers to write a diagnosis in the case of children.

For ADHD in adults, the process is similar, barring of course the consultation with caregivers, etc.

How to get tested for ADHD?

If you observe the symptoms of ADHD in yourself or your child, then you should consult the best ADHD doctors in Dubai. You can also seek expert counsel via Fitcy Health, where you get top-notch help at affordable rates. Benefits like messaging and easy access are also a plus.

What are the treatment options for ADHD?

ADHD treatment is not a straightforward procedure; it is tailored as per the patient’s state and intensity of the symptoms. The treatment for ADHD is a composite of therapy, medication, and lifestyle modifications.

How does ADHD therapy work?

There are different types of therapies that patients are recommended for ADHD treatment. Behavioral therapy is one such type, which helps in changing and altering behavior. Some experts might also ask the parents and caregivers to be in on the treatment plan.

Moreover, CBT –cognitive behavioral therapy –is also used in treating ADHD adults’ symptoms. It helps in improving focus and curbing impulsiveness. Similarly, some therapies like family and marriage therapies are aimed at improving relationships that might suffer from the diagnosis.

How does ADHD medication work?

Some people might also be recommended medication. Often, stimulants are prescribed that help in balancing the neurotransmitters in the body. Examples include amphetamines and methylphenidate. Conversely, some people might give antidepressants instead of stimulants.

What are some lifestyle modifications for ADHD?

The modifications can be subjective, as one has to assess what ADHD means for them. Some general guides include:

Organization

Work on creating systems at your home and office so you can focus better and remain efficient.

Reminder system

If you tend to lose track often, you can establish a reminder system like alarm and sticky notes to help you remember.

Support system

It might also help to involve caregivers, educators, and colleagues so that you have support available.

What is the difference between ADD and ADHD?

ADHD is used to refer to any such disorders pertaining to attention issues, while ADD, attention deficit disorder, is an outdated term. It was used to refer to the predominantly inattentive type of AHDHD.

What does ADHD mean for the person suffering from it?

The exact implications and meaning of ADHD are hard to understand, as the intensity of the condition can vary from person to person. While some people can continue with their life with minimal discomfort, it is disruptive to the lives of others.

The complications that can result from ADHD include:

  • Financial problems
  • Performance issues
  • Relationship complications
  • Risk of accidents
  • Run-ins with law
  • Substance abuse
  • Suicide ideation

The good news is that the symptoms of ADHD can be managed with proper ADHD treatment in Dubai, people can also join ADHD support groups in Dubai to cope better with the condition.

How to get help for ADHD?

For to get ADHD treatment in Dubai, you can consult your doctor for suggestions, or seek help from your friends and family for recommendations for an ADHD specialist Dubai.
