Type 2 Diabetes – Is There A Connection Between ADHD and Diabetes?
ADHD is a term used to describe a neurodevelopment disorder where there is a persistent and recognized pattern of behavior. The condition begins at birth and in most cases persists to some degree throughout the person’s lifetime. The disorder includes acting on impulse without thinking about the consequences, having difficulty staying on task, and moving about inappropriately. A person diagnosed with ADHD might continuously interrupt others or feel unable to sit still, fidget, be disorganized, or cannot stick to specific tasks. This is not due to the lack of cooperation or the inability to understand directions.
Type 2 Diabetes – Will a High Intake of Flavonoids Help Prevent Diabetes?
Researchers at the Central Hospital of Enshi Autonomous Prefecture in Enshi, China, suggest taking in foods containing flavonoids can help prevent the development of Type 2 diabetes. That conclusion was the result of pooling eight earlier studies on the subject and analyzing them as if they were all one large study. The result of the pooled studies was published in May of 2018 in the journal Medicine (Baltimore). A total of 312,015 participants took part in the eight studies, and 19,953 of the participants developed Type 2 diabetes over a period of 4 to 28 years. The participants who had the highest intake of flavonoids had the lowest risk of developing Type 2 diabetes.

Family history plays a part as well for many adults too.
