HMMM… so how do you explain ADHD in people who do NOT have high blood sugar??

Cognitive problems caused by diabetes/metabolic syndrome/high blood sugar/etc. may superficially mimic ADHD, but they are not the same thing as ADHD.

ADHD is caused by a defect in the brain’s dopamine transport system. They have brain scans and everything.
