Health Tip: Medical Problems May Lead to Hyperactivity
Here are potential causes
(HealthDay News) -- Kids are typically little balls of endless energy. But for some, hyperactivity can signal an underlying health problem.
While each of us has a different threshold for measuring hyperactivity, excessive movement is considered a problem if it interferes with school work or the ability to fit in with other children.
The ADAM Encyclopedia offers this list of potential health triggers for hyperactivity in children:
- Having attention-deficit disorder.
- Having a disorder of the brain or central nervous system.
- Having an emotional disorder.
- Having hyperthyroidism, an overactive thyroid gland.
