What is ADD/ADHD?

Attention deficit disorder/attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADD/ADHD) is characterised by short or poor attention span and impulsivity, with or without hyperactivity. ADD/ADHD has academic, social and emotional ramifications, with learning often being impaired and behaviour being disruptive, defiant and often aggressive.

If untreated in childhood, it persists throughout adolescence and adulthood. At this stage in life, many with ADD/ADHD are more likely to suffer drug and alcohol addiction and have trouble maintaining a regular job.

A multidisciplinary approach to treatment, including certain pharmaceuticals, natural medicine, behavioural therapy and family support shows good results

Research

Gokcen et al (2011) examined the relationship between (MTHFR) polymorphisms and Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD) in a sample of Turkish children. Of the two main mutations studied, the A1298C allele was found to be linked with with diagnosed with ADD/ADHD. This small study therefore suggests a link between MTHFR and ADHD.
