Is there a diet for autistic adults with violent behavior problems which will help them feel more at ease? He is  only 18 and goes  through very dramatic ups and downs, we think it might be hormones.

Maybe: I know of a book called: special diets for special kids by lewis which may have some suggestions. In general though, the person to whom you are referring may benefit much more by seeing a board certified child psychiatrist. It may be hormones like you say, and that can be addressed as well. Here is a dvd about behavior problems: http://www.Amazon.Com/s/ref=nb_sb_ss_i_0_16?Url=search-alias%3daps&fi. ...Read more

Can video games cause behavior problems?

Yes, they can: Along with increased aggression if the games are violent, protracted use of all media (more than 2 hours/ day) is associated with obesity. Children with adhd often " hyperfocus" and do not appear to hear instructions. Games and tv at bedtime lead to delayed-onset sleep. A fatigued child often is more "hyper" and irritable than drowsy. Turn off games and tv at least 20 minutes before bedtime. ...Read more

It's difficult: Huntington's disease is a very horrible condition of the brain caused by an excess of the neurotransmitter dopamine. Someone with hd can become psychotic and lose touch with reality.

Does being psychotic cause behavior problems?

It can: When a person is psychotic, he or she may become out of touch with reality. A person who is hallucinating and hearing voices, for example, may talk to him or herself. A person with paranoid delusions may build a bunker to protect him or herself. I knew a patient who ran 15 miles on a highway because he said he heard a voice telling him to do it. So the answer is: absolutely. ...Read more
