Is ADHD, Depression, ODD, Hypoglycemia Possible Due To A Father S Drug Addiction?

My now-16-year-old daughter was recently diagnosed with ADHD, mixed anxiety and depression, and ODD. She was jaundiced when she was born and when she was 3 mos was diagnosed with hypoglycemia; she was nearly 4 years old before she grew out of it. Could her biological father s crack addiction played a role in her physical and mental problems? I ve never used any drugs or abused alcohol, and no one on either side of her family has had any of these problems.

Hi,

This is unlikely related to father's addiction. There can be a genetic predisposition.

Take care. Hope I have answered your question. Let me know if I can assist you further.
