I wonder if your child/children have been tested for
Diabeties. My husband was reciently diagnosed and we
find he craves sweets (especailly when he has a sugar
low) and he also has difficultie concentrating. The
other end is low blood sugar which my mom has. She has
difficultie focusing and has been checked for ADD/ADHD
(she’s in her 60’s) Our son was diagnosed with ADHD
because of the school but in truth he wasn’t ADHD. I
went through the medication for several months and
found that giving him a coke in the morning worked
better than the meds. He was very violent on the
medication and we tried multiple strengths and a
couple types (it’s been 8 years so I don’t remember
the second one the first was Adderal).
I think sometimes kids are diagnosed when in truth
there is something else going on. For us we found that
he was being bullied and that was what was causing his
By the way off the medication he found errors on the
end of year tests administerd from the state we lived
He will graduate High School this year and has not
been held back one time. He has infact skipped a
grade. So please check to insure that he is not
Hypoglycemic/Hyperglycemic or not being bullied.
I do understand that there are ligitimate cases of
ADD/ADHD and for those they should be treated but I
wouldn’t want to see a child treated for something
that is not there.
