Will Sialic Acid (SA) In Infant’s Milk Enhance Chances Of ADHD (Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder)?

Can Milk Cause Hyperactivity?

Some evidence suggests that children with ADHD may have low levels of essential fatty acids. However, early studies have not consistently concluded that supplementation of omega-3 fatty acids in the diets of children with ADHD will improve behavior. Omega-3 fatty acids affect the transmissions of some neurotransmitters (brain chemicals). While a balance of omega-3 fatty acids and omega-6 fatty acids is best for overall health, the typical American diet contains too few omega-3s.

ADHD Symptoms May Be Caused by Food Sensitivities. Many children with food sensitivities can exhibit ADHD symptoms after they are exposed to certain foods. Some of the common foods that can cause ADHD reactions include milk, chocolate, soy, wheat, eggs, beans, corn, tomatoes, grapes, and oranges. Read here…

Can ADHD Be Helped With Diet?

Following an ADHD nutrition plan rich in protein and vitamins can help control symptoms of attention deficit. But only if you avoid sugar, artificial flavors, and common allergens as well. Deficiencies in certain types of foods can worsen symptoms of attention deficit disorder (ADHD or ADD) in children and adults.

    This question is best left to a pediatrician or psychiatrist… But I don't recall there being any study that has identified any true cause of ADHD. It's too difficult to test that hypothesis as there would be too many other variables.

    The only way to determine true cause and effect would be in experimental design research in which variables (Sialic Acid, et al) can be controlled. Otherwise you could only determine correlation between exposure and ADHD. And correlation is no causation. Read: a relationship between two variables (Sailic Acid and ADHD) cannot be determined as hard and fast causation (Sailic Acid caused ADHD) to the level of certainty where there is no doubt.
