Comorbid Conditions Continued
A Brief Recap
I previously wrote about the most common co-occurring conditions with ADHD, which are anxiety, depression, bipolar, addictions, and borderline personality (BPD).
Depression and Bipolar disorder (BD) are also highly comorbid with ADHD. Clinicians must be cognizant of cultural and methodological differences across continents when differentiating between these diagnoses, to prevent misdiagnosis, and to provide optimal care for both ADHD and BD.
Borderline Personality Disorder (BPD) is thought to be the most prevalent personality disorder amongst people with ADHD, which is something that significantly impacted my own experience with seeking support, diagnosis, and treatment. (I wrote a separate piece on this as well).
But wait, there’s more!
I will cover four more disorders and neurotypes that very commonly co-occur with ADHD:
- Learning and Writing Disabilities
- Sensory Processing Disorder
- Sleep Disorders
