Abstract:

Objective: To evaluate the association and level of serum vitamin D in children with attention deficit hyperactivity disorder.
Methods: This case-control study included Healthy and ADHD-diagnosed 6 to12 year olds. Those with ADHD medical records were the case group (n=50), whereas those without ADHD were referred to health clinics for weight and height checks.
Results: The age and gender of research participants did not significantly differ between cases and controls. Serum vitamin D levels differed significantly (P < 0.001) between the patients and control groups. The control group contained 20 youngsters with normal serum vitamin D. None of the children in either group had hazardous vitamin D levels. Serum vitamin D levels differed significantly (P=0.07) between ADHD and control groups. 
Conclusion: ADHD children with low serum vitamin D levels should be monitored and treated for vitamin D deficiency. Additionally, lifestyle and diet should be changed to eliminate nutritional inadequacies in society.
