      I have to disagree again. lol Sugar can be a trigger tho it’s usually

      not. My oldest would be bouncing off the walls if he got to much sugar

      until he got to be around 12-14. The rest of the time he’s just been

      mildly hyper. Also we have some friends who’s 12yo is thought to be

      ADHD. His mom has never had him on meds ever she’s just dealt with it

      and they don’t allow a lot of sugar. He has a twin sister who’s

      totally opposite to him and she’t never showed any signed of ADHD or

      anything else. If there’s a party at school you can tell right off

      that he’s had sugar as his behavior is twice as bad, it’s not just

      being more hyper it’s how he acts as well.
