Food Intolerance & ADHD (2011)

This study investigated food intolerance & ADHD. Researchers from Holland’s Radboud University set out to answer this question by placing 100 children between the ages of 4 and 8 on a restricted diet containing only rice, meat, vegetables, pears and water, therefore free of all gluten and casein. ADHD symptoms were reduced in 78 per cent of children placed on the diet. “We think that dietary intervention should be considered in all children with ADHD, provided parents are willing to follow a diagnostic restricted elimination diet for a five-week period, and provided expert supervision is available,” said the authors. An alternative strategy is IgG food intolerance testing.
