People display different forms of ADHD; some showing problems primarily with hyperactivity, some primarily with attention, and some with both hyperactivity and attention.
Varied causal factors are thought to include genetic predispositions, exposure to alcohol or tobacco during pregnancy and exposure to heavy metals or toxins. A variety of developmental or medical problems can exacerbate or create ADHD symptoms, including food sensitivities, environmental allergies, diabetes, adrenal or thyroid problems, nutritional deficiencies, learning disorders, developmental disabilities and emotional or behavioral problems.
