Do Intelligent people have more zinc and copper in their hair?

A: I think this question is far too vague to be answered intelligently. First, what standard are we using? Are we only looking at IQ scores, or are we looking at what people have been able to accomplish in their lives, because those two things do not necessarily correspond. And where is the dividing line between ''more'' or ''less'' zinc and copper? Since zinc and copper are two entirely different elements, what if a person has ''more'' zinc and ''less'' copper, or vice-versa? actually it is true you should go on this website:http://www.funfunnyfacts.com/fun-facts/funny-did-you-know-facts.html http://www.drkaslow.com/html/zinc-copper_imbalances.html Copper and zinc are regarded as neurotransmitters and are in high concentrations in brain hippocampus.

Dealing with both husband with ADD & teenager with ADHD...Help?

A: Hi Smystic57,    I can hear the desperation in your voice! It''s not easy living with ADHD family members! To answer your questions-   You mention that your husband is doing well without meds. But yet, you''re having problems dealing with him. Do you feel he''s doing well without meds? Is he getting any kind of help for his ADHD? I''m guessing that his ADHD is still getting in his- and your- way, thus causing lots of stress in your marriage and family. I''m wondering if he''s seeing this, too and if he''d be open to getting some help with it, through seeing a counselor for himself and/or considering a few sessions with a marital therapist to help you both. When ADD is in the mix, there is often a lot of stress. Add a child or two with ADD and well...you know how hard...


ticks in a t12yr old gilr with adhd

A: It is recommended by the FDA that children with a history, or family history, of tics or Tourettes Syndrome not be prescribed Ritalin.   Recent studies, however, have shown no evidence that stimulant medications cause or increase tics in children. According to the A.D.A.M health information, ''Certain medications, such as methylphenidate (used to treat hyperactivity in children), were previously thought to precipitate tics in children already prone to the disorder. However, recent studies published do not support this notion and suggest that these medications can be used in children with tics who also have attention deficit disorder, which commonly occurs in the same population.''   I hope this...

My 3 in a half year old grandson is very hiper and sometimes a little agressive.with mood swings.

A: Pam   Thank you for your question and welcome to ADHDCentral.com.   I am not a medical professional and would not be able to give you medical advice. However, I can share some of what I have learned from speaking with parents of children with ADHD, having raised a son with ADHD and bipolar and speaking with medical professionals.   You don''t mention whether your grandson has been diagnosed with ADHD. You also don''t mention whether the parents are involved with your grandson and if so, whether they are also concerned with some of his behaviors.   ADHD has been diagnosed in children as young as 3, however, many doctors are reluctant to diagnose in a child that young because each child develops at a different rate and many of the symptoms of ADHD can be...

Advantages of ADHD

A: While diagnostic criteria and treatment plans focus on negative aspects of hyperactivity, impulsive problems or attention deficits, there are a lot of positive aspects of ADHD children, adolescents or adults. Not all ADHD people will have all these positive traits or qualities but usually you will find a broad variety of strengths.This is one of the reasons why many parents do not want their children to be changed by psychopharmacotherapy or behavioural treatment.
