Countless small acts of bias happen to people with ADHD all day long at work. If you let it get to you, it can feel like death by a thousand papercuts. I often say that it’s not ADHD that’s my biggest problem, it’s that people don’t understand ADHD. If you have ADHD, you’re probably a sensitive person. Pick your battles.
There are 12 genetic risk factors for ADHD, a new study has found.
For the first time, researchers at the University of Cardiff have discovered there are common genetic tendencies linked to the disorder found in around one in 20 children.
The genetic information of around 55,000 people was analysed to identify differences between people with and without the condition. The team also found these same genetic factors are shared with other psychiatric and physical disorders, including depression, obesity, and type 2 diabetes.
