We found out on Wednesday that My 5 y/o has ADHD. We have an appointment with the pediatrician on Tuesday to discuss whether or not to try the meds, and to see what else we can do. My son's teacher suggested we ask for allergy testing. Has anyone else tried this route? We have been avoiding food dye and artificial sweeteners. I feel really relieved to have some answers but I know we have a long road ahead of us.

HI


Allergy testing was ordered by our neuropsych as part of the Diagnostic process, food, outdoor and environmental.We are GF/CF, and no artificial flavors or colors , and we do Feingold diet.It has helped tremendously.

A child may HAVE ADHD, but it is not what they ARE. Never tell a child they ARE ADHD.
