Contrary to studies from the 90s which claimed that 50 per cent of children will outgrow Attention Deficit Hyperactive Disorder (ADHD), researchers have recently found that only a mere 10 per cent actually do. ADHD manifests itself in adulthood in different ways, and waxes and wanes over a lifetime, according to a 2021 study published in the American Journal of Psychiatry. ADHD has two main categories: Inattentive signs like disorganisation and forgetfulness, and hyperactive indications like impulsivity.In children, the symptoms include having a ton of energy, running around, and climbing on things. In adults, being verbally impulsive, indecisiveness, and acting first and, thinking later is common. This disorder affects people differently, and is largely dependent on what phase of life theyre in.The study followed a group of 558 children with ADHD for 16 yearsfrom when they were eight years old to 25 years of age. The subjects took eight tests and were assessed every two years to determine if they had symptoms of ADHD. The research also took into account their teachers and parents takes on the symptoms.Managing ADHDWhile we dont know what causes ADHD to flare yet, researchers say that stress, improper sleep hygiene, and lack of healthy eating and exercise, could all be factors. If you are unable to manage your symptoms and dont understand what works for you, theyre probably going to get out of control. Medication and therapy can help cope with ADHD.It doesnt hurt to seek professional help when the symptoms take over your life.
