Of these children do not respond to prevailing therapy methods. It is reported

That dietetic factors can play a significant role in the etiology of ADHD

Syndrome, and magnesium deficiency can help in revealing hyperactivity in

Children. The aim of our work was to assess the influence of magnesium

Supplementation on hyperactivity in patients with ADHD. The examination

Comprised 50 hyperactive children, aged 7-12 years, who fulfilled DSM IV

Criteria for ADHD syndrome, with recognized deficiency of magnesium in the blood

(blood serum and red blood cells) and in hair using atomic absorption

Spectroscopy. In the period of 6 months those examined regularly took magnesium

Preparations in a dose of about 200 mg/day. 30 of those examined with ADHD

Showed coexisting disorders specific to developmental age, and 20 of them showed

Disruptive behaviour. The control group consisted of 25 children with ADHD and

Magnesium deficiency, who were treated in a standard way, without magnesium

Preparations. 15 members of this group showed coexisting disorders specific for

Developmental age, and 10 members showed disruptive behaviour. Hyperactivity was

Assessed with the aid of psychometric scales: the Conners Rating Scale for

Parents and Teachers, Wender’s Scale of Behavior and the Quotient of Development

To Freedom from Distractibility. In the group of children given 6 months of

Magnesium supplementation, independently of other mental disorders coexisting

With hyperactivity, an increase in magnesium contents in hair and a significant

Decrease of hyperactivity of those examined has been achieved, compared to their

Clinical state before supplementation and compared to the control group which
