Is your child in kindergarden yet?

I think that if you have some thoughts that something might be going on with your child you should get her looked at. Follow your heart and your instincts and if there is nothing wrong then at least you know. I had that same feeling about my son when he was 4 and had him checked out. I am glad that I did because he was diagnosed with o.d.d.
you are the mother and you have to be diligent when it comes to your child and their health and well being. I wouldn't let it go if I were you.

Wrong Nutrition is the main reason for ADHD. Natural solutions available. Email: [email protected]

I disagree with Andre. Nutrition is not the main reason for ADHD! Yes, it helps to cut down on the high fructose sugars, that I do agree on. Consult your doctor and have the necessary tests done. Medication is also a wonderful thing to help your child. Do not totally rely on nutrition. Work with nutrition and medication together. You will be be helping your child with both!

I disagree aswell there is absolutly no proof whatsoever of nutrition being a factor in adhd. Of cause it can help every child and aldult to eat healthy but is no way a factor. Andre obviously doesnt have a child with the condition otherwise he wouldnt be so adderment with totely unhelpfull infermation. Iam a mother of a adhd child and only wont to know the facts of help of the condition. Keep trying to get help with diagnosis and keep pushing if you feel they are wrong or not helpfull. It will be hard work as you will probley already know but keep strong It will all pay off in the end im sure. Good luck XXXX

You have to trust your instincts as a mother. I had to fight my family and son's school, all said he was fine. I went against everyone and took him to the doctor on the advice of his teacher. I believe that that teacher saved my son's life. It took about 6 months, and he was diagnosed with ADD. That was almost 2 years ago. We still do struggle, but he is so much better off. Follow your gut.

Almost all of the people , myself included who has a child with add or adhd and has had it diagnosed has put there child on meds and the child goes from having add or adhd to having add, adhd, mood swings, a eating disorder, a sleeping disorder, tics (clicking of his or her mouth or body) they cant make friends and have headache problems. The only problem is if your 5 year old really has add or adhd ,he or she more than likely will do poor or be far behind in school because they cant sit still in class or they cant focus. Your damned if you do and damned if you dont. If you find some other solution help me out.(I NEED IT BECAUSE I LOST MY MIND A LOOOOONG TIME AGO). Try giving your 5yr a cup of coffee in the morning IT WORKS.

I cured Cadee's adhd with diet. I wrote it under the title cure for adhd. There are some very good private schools. In many cases it is found that they don't have adhd even if they have the symptoms. There is a hair test that you should have done first. It will tell you if your child is deficient in any vitamins. I don't know what the test is actually called, however, they cut off a little of your child's hair and have it analyzed.
