Who knew? It turns out that something as oddball as tonsil removal could cure ADHD, according to an Associated Press article at azcentral.com.
Here is an excerpt:
As medical studies are beginning to confirm, the removal of a child's tonsils can, in some cases, significantly improve, even cure, severe hyperactivity often diagnosed as attention deficit hyperactivity disorder, or ADHD.
Now affecting more than 2 million U.S. children, ADHD most often is treated with controversial psychoactive drugs, sometimes taken for a lifetime.
But in a significant number of these children - as many as half of those with an ADHD diagnosis, in one study - simply removing the tonsils also has removed the diagnosis, by restoring normal behavior.
