Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder

Conection Between ADD and Ear Infections

05/18/1999

Question:

Is there a connection between ADD and multiple ear infects as an infant and/or toddler?

Answer:

There is some suggestion that children with ADD have more ear infections. Interestingly, my ANECDOTAL (not yet well researched) experience is that the ADD population has a much higher percentage of upper respiratory allergies than my general Family Practice patients. May be related.
