Study Title: Study on Vitamin D and Magnesium Supplementation in Children with ADHD
Abstract Summary: This study focused on the effects of vitamin D and magnesium supplementation on the mental health status of children with attention-deficit hyperactive disorder (ADHD).
Methods: The study used a randomized controlled trial format. It involved screening 74 children and selecting 66 participants based on inclusion and exclusion criteria. These participants were divided into intervention and control groups, each with 33 children. The study assessed the effect of the supplementation by considering various factors such as sex, age, BMI, and medication dose.
Summary of Findings: The study observed that, after an 8-week intervention, the serum levels of vitamin D and magnesium significantly increased in the intervention group compared to the control group. There were improvements in emotional, peer, and other related difficulties. No side effects from the supplements were observed.
