KEY POINTS

Hosts Patricia Wu, Jessica Reyes, and guest expert Dr. Janina Maschke discuss the misunderstood realm of ADHD, shedding light on its manifestation across genders, the importance of early diagnosis, and the approach to management.

Gender-Specific Manifestations

ADHD often goes unrecognized in women and girls due to more internalized symptoms, such as daydreaming and excessive talking, as opposed to the externalized hyperactivity more commonly seen in males.

The Impact of Hormonal Fluctuations

Hormonal changes during menstruation, pregnancy, and menopause can significantly affect ADHD symptoms in women, making management and diagnosis more complex.

Comprehensive Treatment Approaches

A combination of medication, therapy, and coaching is highlighted as the most effective strategy for managing ADHD, tailored to the individual’s unique needs and circumstances.
