Is ADHD a sleep disorder?
The theory that ADHD symptoms are caused by sleep deprivation, or even that the condition itself is a sleep disorder, is gaining momentum among researchers. But others contend that the pharmaceuticals used to treat ADHD, not the disorder itself, are the sleep-depriving culprit. Attention deficit/hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) affects about 5 percent of children, according to the American Psychiatry Association. Symptoms include an inability to focus, impulsive behavior and hyperactivity, The disorder… (Source: bizjournals.com Health Care:Pharmaceuticals headlines)

HealthWatch: People With ADHD Losing Sleep; Break From Diet Can Help Weight Loss
BOSTON (CBS) – It’s estimated that up to 11 percent of kids ages 4 to 17 are diagnosed with attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD), but could your child just be sleep deprived? A recent analysis found that 75 percent of children and adults with ADHD also have disruptions in their biological clocks, causing them to fall asleep later and sleep less. But it is unclear what comes first, if sleeplessness contributes to ADHD or if ADHD causes sleep problems. While more research is needed, experts say there may be a significant number of kids and adults diagnosed with ADHD who could benefit from better sleep....

Many teenagers reporting symptoms of depression
Conclusion This large cohort study highlights high levels of depressive symptoms in children and adolescents. It is however important to note that these are symptoms – we don't know how many of the children would be diagnosed with depression. When parents complete the Short Mood and Feelings Questionnaire, it is estimated that it will accurately identify 75% of children with depression and 73% of children without depression. But it is less accurate when children complete it. Recent research suggests that it can identify 60% of children with depression and 61% of children without depression. Despite these limitatio...

Symptoms such as fidgeting, foot-tapping and chair-swiveling are triggered by cognitively demanding tasks - like school and homework. But movies and video games don't typically require brain strain, so the excessive movement doesn't manifest. (Source: EurekAlert! - Medicine and Health)

Does your child have narcolepsy?
Teens are a notoriously sleepy bunch. Left to their own devices, many will happily snooze into the early hours of the afternoon. About 28 percent of teens also report falling asleep in school at least once a week, according to a poll by the National Sleep Foundation. This can make it difficult for parents to know when a teenager’s love affair with sleep might be the sign of narcolepsy or another sleep disorder. While narcolepsy is a rare condition, affecting only about .05 percent of the U.S. population, it often goes undiagnosed. It is a condition that typically develops between ages 10 and 20. “Patients with ...
