My brothers four sons have all been diagnoised with Adhd. and my sisters daughter who refuses to take Ritalin ( good for her). One of my brothers sons has also been diagnoised with aspergers. he spends most of the day sleeping. It is screamingly obvious to me they all have thyroid issues. When I look at them I can just see history repeating itself and find it heartbreaking. I have said to my Brother (who is a Dr ) to get their thyroids tested he just changes the subject. I suppose I have become a bit of thyroid bore which is why no-one takes any notice, his two older sons keep retaking their final year at University the oldest one is nearly 27 now and my brother is broke and stressed because he has to keep forking out for them. Does anyone know of any case studies where people have turned their life around who have been misdiagnoised with adhd. Incidently my Sister who has no attention span thinks I have adhd. She is in denial about her throid issues. There is a History of thyroid problems in my family . My late Sister (the other one) had Anyway I have have tried and failed so if anyone has any ideas or stories that would be a great help. Thanks.
