Está bien que se siga investigando, pero parece estar claro que el TDAH es una enfermedad hereditaria, que está en los genes, y afecta principalmente a la dopamina, pues primero lo primero, sino podemos atacar al gen, ataquemos a la dopamina, y luego conectemos todos con el niño para crear un ambiente favorable.
ADHD diet study data doubted by pediatricians
Diet treatments for ADHD as an alternative to medication have raised hope as well as controversy. Researchers in the Netherlands published a study Thursday on the subject. They found that diet had an impact on some children as far as improving their ADHD condition. But attention deficit hyperactivity disorder experts question the study and say parents of ADHD kids can't rely on diet alone to mitigate the disorder.
What was learned with the ADHD diet study
The Lancet released a study on Thursday that stated ADHD might be treated with an elimination diet. ADHD symptoms were reduced 64 percent in children in a study done by Dutch researchers that took away all food that would normally cause food allergies. In the ADHD diet, there is rice, white meat and vegetables. Over the five weeks of the study, 41 children got the diet change. It was shown that 32 of them had clear ADHD symptom improvement. In the second phase of the study, the children were fed what are assumed to be ADHD trigger foods and most of them relapsed. A control group of 50 children ate a standard healthy diet and no reduction in hyperactivity was noted.

Allergy connection to ADHD
Processed foods high in sugar have long been suspected as ADHD triggers, but according to the National Institute of Mental Health, no concrete evidence supports that assumption. Many think that food allergies might have a brain chemistry reaction instead of physical effects like asthma, skin rashes and diarrhea that other children get. These questions couldn't be answered by the Dutch study or to tell you which foods to avoid, considering it was only a five week study. The individual child is taken into account when it comes to "standard" care for ADHD though
