    There are so many studies that have debunked food being related to ADHD, NOT that I am advocating (although I am guilty with my own child). What an ADHD brain looks like compared to a normal brain is way different. There is a, for lack of a better phrase, dead space where connections just do not happen. Hence, prescribing stimulants to fire those receptors. Some people use stimulants that are medicated and some use non-medicated (mt. Dew).

    My son who was a long time medicated for ADHD and was an agitated terror all the time has settled down nicely now that I got the soft drinks and bread and sugar and carbs mostly out of his diet. he is eating a solid paleo diet and is doing great. I dont care what studies there are saying food is not involved in ADHD. I see it all the time, kids hyped on sugar and crap food being crazy making.

    Who the hell comes up with these studies anyways? the sugar industry?

    I know that in some cases, changing diet just isn't enough. My sister was one of those. I do know that, when we could get her to follow it, a junk free diet did help her. It just wasn't enough. Now she refuses to medicate or use diet, out of some religious reasoning.
    I know I am a case where diet is all that was needed to change. I cut sulfites due to an allergy and went full paleo. Bam, no more ADHD.
    Knowing that there are some where diet just isn't enough is part of why I held my tongue after the first advice on diet. What I believe to be true, may not be true for the kid.

    agreed. I cut the junk from my daughters diet and there was no change. She is on meds and yeah, its a little better but our life is a roller coaster no matter what the girl is eating.

    Read about brain scans with kids that have ADHD and kids that do not. Its not food that fills in the gaps or lack of food. Yes, the sugar industry fills the world with crap and sugar affects a lot but ADHD is a medical diagnosis.

    Thank you for saying something.

    I really get frustrated when people try to dismiss ADHD as an actual neurological condition and suggest that it can be 'cured' via diet or that it is 'caused' by one's diet. As an adult with ADHD, I can assure you that it is a real issue, and medication is often the best solution. Does eating better (and otherwise living primally) help out by eliminating some moderately-related issues (fatigue, anxiety, etc.)? Yes, of course. Does diet get rid of the root symptoms (forgetfulness, lack of proper focus, inability to motivate yourself)? Nope, not even close.

    Where can we read the studies?

    When my daughter goes her to next therapy session I will get the name and author of the book I am referring to. It has pictures of the brain scans I am talking about but some articles to consider are:

    ADHD: Attention Deficit and the Interest-Based Nervous System
    Discovery Health "Causes of ADHD and the ADHD Brain" reference to the grey matter is what I was talking about
    Causes of ADHD
    The influence of components of diet on ... [Rocz Panstw Zakl Hig. 2012] - PubMed - NCBI discusses more of vitamin deficiencies rather than food causing harm

    edit to say: If you live with ADHD either in yourself or your child, you look for anything and everything to help. You research your brains out. You talk with anyone who might possibly have expertise in this area. You try EVERYTHING! I would gently advise you to not cast judgement on the parents of ADHD kids or ADHD adults who are doing the best they can with what they have. I live this life everyday from the moment I wake up, we struggle, to when she goes to bed, again we struggle and everyplace inbetween.
