Samuele Cortese, MD PhD, ADHD in AdultsAvailable to Subscribers.  Having ADHD increases the risk of obesity in adults by 70% vs. non ADHD adults, and 40% increased risk in children. When ADHD individuals take ADHD medications, the risk for obesity is shown to reduce significantly. When we look at it the other way, in seeing how many obese individuals have ADHD, studies show that up to 40% have ADHD. The implications for clinical care are that a) obese patients should be screened for ADHD by healthcare professionals, and b) ADHD medications and cognitive training have a protective effect against obesity because individuals are more in control of their awareness and impulses.  Learn all about it in this session.

Prof Dr Andreas Reif, MD, ADHD in AdultsAvailable to Subscribers.  Professor Dr. Andreas Reif, MD outlines the common and distinguishing factors between ADHD and Bipolar Disorder. These can co-exist, or be separate, and be in combination with other conditions. It is very important for patients to be diagnosed properly, which can be done in the primary care office, so that optimal treatments are prescribed. ADHD occurs early in life and is consistent in presence. Bipolar Disorder (BPD) occurs in teens and adults and is episodic. Psychotherapy and psycho-education are important components of treatment, along with medications. Dr. Reif explains this in detail.

Philip Asherson, MRC Psych, PhD, ADHD in AdultsAvailable to Subscribers.  Dr. Philip Asherson unwraps a key study of young adult inmates in Aberdeen prison which provides useful guidance as to how ADHD should be screened, diagnosed, and treated, both in prisons and in the larger adult population.  25% of prisoners were found to fit criteria of ADHD, meaning that prisons have served as societal treatment of ADHD individuals.  In a separate study, criminality was greatly reduced by almost one third when ADHD medications are administered, both inside of and outside of prison.  Dr. Asherson discusses the clinical and societal benefits of ADHD treatments, resulting in fewer violent incidents, lower ADHD symptoms, lower emotional volatility, and reduced criminality and societal cost.  Learn more in this fascinating presentation.

15:45 minutes

A panel of ADHD experts discusses alternative treatments for ADHD, covering the known efficacies of exercise, meditation, mindfulness, yoga, cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT, or Cog Med), omega 3’s and diet. All options should be held to the same rigor of repeatable evidence-based results before being recommended. What is most interesting is not the treatments themselves, but how the patient feels about taking part in the treatments.
