What Are the Possible Causes of ADHD?
ADHD is a real medical condition that may run in families. So, for instance, if your child has ADHD, there is a higher risk that you may have ADHD, too. The exact cause of ADHD is unknown. A high degree of heritability does not mean that all adults with ADHD will have children with the disorder. Another thing to keep in mind is that though ADHD begins in childhood, it can affect you throughout your life. In fact, approximately 50-66% of children diagnosed with ADHD in childhood may continue to have ADHD symptoms as adults.
