Even though ADHD is really common, professionals still aren’t exactly sure what causes the condition. Genetics may be a factor, and reduction in dopamine is likely a factor. Smoking during pregnancy could lead to ADHD. It could be that patients have structural differences in their brains, like less gray matter volume. Gray matter includes the brain areas that help with muscle control, self-control, decision-making, and speech.
Although professionals aren’t entirely sure what causes ADHD, they know how to manage the condition so patients can still live very well.
ADHD has three different types, and each type may need a different approach to treatment. Also, the type a person has can change over time, so treatment may have to change too.
The three types of ADHD are predominantly inattentive, predominantly hyperactive-impulsive, and combined hyperactive-impulsive and inattentive. With predominantly inattentive ADHD, a person has trouble focusing, finishing tasks, and following instructions. With predominantly hyperactive-impulsive ADHD, a person has hyperactive and impulsive behavior and may fidget a lot and struggle to wait their turn. Finally, with combined hyperactive-impulsive and inattentive ADHD, a person has both inattentive and hyperactive symptoms. This kind of ADHD tends to be more common than the other kinds, but all of them are common.
There are several methods of managing the different types of ADHD. One method is ADHD medication which is designed to help patients control their behaviors and actions. There are a couple of options for ADHD medications, like stimulants and nonstimulants, and each works in different ways. Stimulants increase the amounts of helpful brain chemicals, like dopamine, while non-stimulants work by increasing levels of a helpful hormone and neurotransmitter called norepinephrine. You should speak with a professional about whether medication would be right for you or your child.
You should also speak with a professional about therapy as a method for ADHD management. Behavioral therapy may help a patient learn how to monitor and manage their behavior, while talk therapy may help a patient come up with their own ways of managing the condition. Therapy can work really well for kids and adults alike.
If you come to our clinic for ADHD management, you can ask about getting a prescription medication, a type of therapy, or a referral for therapy. You can also ask about whether a combination of methods would help you. You’ll be able to ask about these things during a simple consultation with us here at Body & Mind Consulting.
