However, one report has suggested that the impact of exposure to parental ADHD on clinical features and dysfunction in offspring is minimal (Biederman, Faraone, & Monuteaux, 2002). This study reported on 1099 offspring of non-ADHD, remitted ADHD, and persistent ADHD parents. It compared offspring across these three groups on clinical, cognitive, and psychosocial outcomes, adjusting for exposure to other parental psychopathology, offspring ADHD status, and social class. The study found that the risk of ADHD was equally high for the offspring of parents with either remitted ADHD or current (persistent) ADHD compared to the parents who never had ADHD.

Ratey, Miller, and Nadeau (1995) were among the first to write about the interaction between changing hormonal states and ADHD in women. It has been proposed that whenever brain estrogen levels “fall below the minimum brain estrogen requirement,” for whatever reason and at whatever age, brain dysfunction may result (Arpels, 1996). Low estrogen states could thus be particularly problematic for women with ADHD, who are already experiencing symptoms as a result of neurotransmitter imbalance. Low estrogen states occur before menstruation, during the postpartum period, and in menopause, although levels begin to decline during perimenopause.
