Doctors' Answers to "Frequently Asked Questions" - Hyperactivity
Hyperactivity in child
Answer: What is your connection? Teacher, neighbor, relative, church? This has a great bearing on
your ability to influence the family. It is difficult to evaluate a 2 year old in terms of activity. You
might raise the issue with the mother/pediatrician. The diet is a mute issue until the activity level
is addressed. High sugar content may not be good for the teeth, but has little effect on other
parameters. There is a diet touted for control of hyperactive children. If this child truly is, that
could be an option. However, it usually requires some income and perspective on the problem.
