7 Conditions That Show ADHD Symptoms

thinkingCould child and adult ADHD symptoms actually be one of these 7 physical conditions?

A Google search of Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder yields over 60 million search results. And though much of the data is stated as fact, no apparent scientific evidence of it exists. What is obvious from a list of symptoms, however, is that they are not exclusive to it but shared by other proven physical conditions.

Likely caring little about scientific evidence, sufferers yet experience anxiety, depression, mood swings, irritability, absentmindedness, hyperactivity, even boredom just to name but a few.

Here are 7 conditions with similar symptoms:

1. Hormone imbalance

Mood swings and depression are among many listed symptoms in a recent report on hormone imbalance. Hormone-producing glands such as the adrenals and ovaries can malfunction and cause many of these symptoms.

2. Low blood sugar

Some interesting information can be found about hypoglycemia including manifestations similar to purported ADHD symptoms including sudden mood changes, nervousness, “shakiness” as well as trouble thinking clearly.

3. High or severe stress

Even WebMD publishes stress signs similar to ADHD symptoms. Feeling “easily agitated, frustrated or moody”, “having difficulty quieting or relaxing your mind”, nervousness and shaking all are reported on their website.

4. Nerve irritation

Nerve conduction studies are done for one reason: to assess and measure the ability of nerves to conduct electricity. Normal nerve conduction of electricity carries communication between the brain and body. Interrupted, vital malfunction can occur. A minor spinal bone displacement, for instance can irritate a nerve and reduce energy flow. Such can cause many of the conditions listed here.

pills5. Withdrawal

Many think only drug addicts experience withdrawal. Anything, however, not natural to the human body is considered toxic and its expulsion is a detox process. Therefore even starting a nutritional program or diet or quitting or smoking could create similar symptoms to withdrawal from the worst of drugs. Anxiety, irritability, poor concentration and depression are just a few listed on an informational site showing many ADHD symptom similarities.

6. Malnutrition

You don’t have to be starving in a third world country to be malnourished. It’s happening here at home. In fact, the buzz about soil depletion has been very mainstream, with one study reporting several mineral and vitamin deficiencies in vegetables including 12 which are supplying 27% less calcium. Malnutrition is therefore a factor in the diets of even the healthiest eaters. Depression, changes in mood and lethargy are reported as symptoms, again very similar if not identical to those from ADHD.

7. Mineral deficiency

Due to soil depletion, plants do not provide the mineral supply they once did. Minerals can also be depleted by toxins. Their deficiency can cause, mood swings, anxiety, inability to relax and others, once again, all similar to ADHD.

Prevention, Remedy of 7 Conditions vs ‘ADHD Symptoms Treatment’

It is plain to see that a vague list of symptoms does not a disease or condition make. A diagnosis is only as good it provides a solution. Symptoms should trace to a physical cause, verified scientifically.

Minerals, particularly calcium and magnesium, are commonly-found in deficiency in these 7 and other conditions. The Instant CalMag-C formula delivers calcium and magnesium quickly to the body to help fulfil the body’s needs. It can be a simple start and faithful companion to any prescribed remedy.

So, when you hear “ask your doctor” in relation to ADHD symptoms, perhaps you should ask him about a lengthy list of possible conditions with similar symptoms you found through your own due diligence. For that could be the difference between “living with it” and living without it.
