Dipal Patel*, Meet Shah, Komal Sharma, Reena Tripathi, Jigna Shah

ABSTRACT

Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD) is the most commonly diagnosed behavioral disorder of childhood associated with inattentiveness, over-activity, impulsivity, or a combination. It affects about 3 - 5% of school aged children. The prevalence of ADHD is alarmingly increased in last few years. Many of the neurotransmitters are metabolically derived from amino acids. Analyses of plasma amino acid levels determined that phenylalanine, tyrosine, tryptophan, and isoleucine were lower in ADHD patients than in controls.The treatment of ADHD requires a multimodal approach. Conventional treatment most often includes medications like methylphenidate or amphetamine, which are stimulant drugs. Pyridoxine, folic acid, thiamin, niacin, and vitamin C are the nutrients most commonly found to be low in children who responded to supplementation with measurable improvement.Reports indicates that alternative medicine treatments can reduce ADHD symptoms. Yoga and meditation help children relax and learn discipline, which may help them manage their symptoms of ADHD.

Keywords: ADHD, Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder, dopamine, COMT, nutrients.
