New Breakthrough in Treating ADHD
Doctors are taking part in a breakthrough clinical trial that could make a difference in treating ADHD.
Researchers are looking at the brains of those age 10 or older with ADHD, or may be at risk for it.
They are looking for something that might make a difference in what they eat before, during and after treatment.
In their research, they found omega 3's might work against some of the brain changes that happen in those with the disorder.
"This really has the promise to have significant effect on how we view disorders like ADHD, and how we treat disorders like ADHD," psychiatrist Dr. Cal Alder said.
Doctor Alder said they already know that omega 3 plays an important role in brain health overall.
Now, his team is trying to find out if ADHD patients might get additional benefit from it, with or without medication.
