ADHD is classified by inattention, hyperactivity and/or impulsivity.  

 

There are 3 main types of ADHD:

  • Predominantly inattentive (previously referred to as ADD)

  • Predominantly hyperactive (rare)

  • Combined (most common)

Children and adults with ADHD have a wide spectrum of severity of symptoms with some people having mild symptoms and others having very impairing symptoms for day to day life.

Research shows that nutrition plays an important role in reducing the severity of ADHD symptoms.  There are many genetic and environmental factors that influence how children and adults with ADHD respond to nutrition and what they eat.
