A Sure Recovery to Health & Direction

How Early Diagnosis Leads To Full Recovery

When assessing whether an individual suffers with Attention Deficit Disorder or not it is a lot harder than it may appear to laymen such as ourselves. The symptoms of ADD are the same as those of other ailments such as hyperthyroidism etc. Many of the symptoms are shared by all people at some point or another, so it is often the scale of these which diagnoses a person as having ADD. So the first important step in diagnosing the disease is to consult a medically trained health provider regarding it.

Because what is interpreted as Attention Deficit Disorder is still vague, diagnosing the ailment is very difficult since there is nothing which is solely a part of, or totally outside of the scope of ADD. Although various organizations such as The American Pediatrics Clinical Practice have tried to put in place guidelines in order to assist people in recognizing the disease most people including medical professionals are still often unsure about such methods.

While doctors in the past have tried to use MRI (or magnetic resonance imagery) to analyze a patient's brain to detect early signs of ADD, most medical professionals not longer recommend this. Thus diagnosis is often now based primarily on reports of people close to the patient, those who see, talk to, work or live with them and have come to understand the patient's habits well.

Guideline published by the AAP (The American Academy of Pediatrics) requires that medical personnel look into a child's behavior getting information from more than one location before they reach a conclusion as to whether or not a child is suffering from ADD. The doctor is therefore expected to need to consult various sources regarding his patient's behaviour from his school, home, the playground etc. to make sure that any diagnosis is not based on a child's behavior at one place. This is so that we can know for definite that the problem is intrinsic to the child's normal personality and not just a reaction to what may have happened in one place.

The guideline also demands that a physician use "explicit criteria for diagnosis" using a DS-IV-TR standard.

Therefore when approaching a medical professional for treatment, make sure that they closely follow the directions as set by the Academy before they try to diagnose the problem. Remember that a problem like ADD may not be so difficult to set about curing as it is to diagnose. But proper diagnosis is likely to be a first step in a satisfactory cure.

This is a disease which is very widespread in one form or another, and is seen in differing degrees among many youngsters. While we choose to ignore the problem and deny its presence, It is am ailment which will stay with your child until they are much older, possibly for life. Therefore recognize the disease early and take your child to a medical professional for a competent diagnosis and a cure narconon.
