Health Tip: Medical Problems May Lead to Hyperactivity

Health Tip: Medical Problems May Lead to Hyperactivity

05/10/11

(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.
