Open: Katie Price has revealed that she saw a doctor to find out whether or not she has undiagnosed Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD).
“I have to fill out some forms, say how I was as a child, my mum has to fill out forms and my dad and then my next appointment is when I get back from Thailand.”
ADHD is a behavioral disorder defined by inattention, hyperactivity, and impulsivity.
Symptoms typically appear at an early age and become more apparent as a child grows.
The majority of cases are diagnosed in children under the age of 12, but some people are not diagnosed until adulthood.

According to the NHS, the causes of ADHD are not known, but the condition has been shown to run in families.
It comes after Katie was reportedly left “devastated” and “in pieces” after losing her pet Chihuahua Captain while on holiday recently.
The star lost the pup while on a short holiday with fiancé Carl Woods, 32, to Millionaires Playground Sandbanks in Dorset.
A source told The Sun: “Katie was in tears. She thought Captain would be fine without his leash since they were staying on a friend’s private property which was very secure, but he managed to escape.
They went on to tell the publication, “Katie was devastated and thought she’d lost him for good or he might get run over.”

After an eight-hour search, the former Celebrity Big Brother roommate then received a call to say Captain had been found.
The pup had been taken to a local vet, who was able to identify him using his microchip.
However, Katie has come under fire in the past with a Change.Org petition that garnered over 14,000 signatures to ban her from owning any more animals.
She was previously slammed by animal rights groups in November 2021 after bringing guard dog Okra into the family after dog Rolo choked to death in her home while her Alsatian Sparkle was mowed down in February 2020, in shocking echoes of her dog Queenie’s death. who was killed in 2018.
Katie later revealed her shock after being illegally advised to give her late pup Rolo cannabis oil before he “choked in an armchair”.
WHAT IS ADHD?
Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD) is a behavioral disorder defined by inattention, hyperactivity, and impulsivity.
It affects about five percent of children in the US. About 3.6 percent of boys and 0.85 percent of girls suffer from it in the UK.
Symptoms typically appear at an early age and become more apparent as a child grows. This can also include:
- Constant fidgeting
- Bad concentration
- Excessive movement or talking
- Act without thinking
- Little or no sense of danger
- careless mistake
- Difficulty organizing tasks
- Inability to listen or carry out instructions
Most cases are diagnosed between the ages of six and 12. Adults can also suffer from it, but there is less research on this.
The exact cause of ADHD is unclear, but it is thought to be due to genetic mutations that affect a person’s brain function and structure.
Premature babies and those with epilepsy or brain damage are at greater risk.
ADHD is also linked to anxiety, depression, insomnia, Tourette’s disease and epilepsy.
There is no cure.
A combination of medication and therapy is usually recommended to relieve symptoms and make everyday life easier.

The late French bulldog, bought as a 13th birthday present for her daughter Princess, fell asleep under an electric chair after being given the non-psychoactive cannabis derivative and “choked to death” after the family’s nanny sat in the chair sat.
Katie reportedly gave the puppy away to a member of the crew of a recent TV show she directed.
French bulldog Precious was a gift to the teenager after her old dog Rolo got stuck under an armchair and died – before being found by Harvey’s handler.
Shortly after this incident, which happened in 2019, the petition was started.
Katie told the Mirror that she was unaware that the Veterinary Medicines Regulations 2013 made it illegal to give the substance to dogs without a veterinary prescription.
The description of the petition read: “A puppy has died in the care of Katie in the last 24 hours. She bought this puppy 3 weeks ago for her 13 year old child. Who died in an accident that nobody saw.
MIA: Katie was reportedly left “devastated” and “in pieces” after recently losing her pet Chihuahua Captain while on holiday (pictured earlier this year).
“In the last 5 years, more animals have died from lack of care. horses, dogs. Cats, lizards, hedgehogs. This is not a single family tragedy. It’s a common thing at Katie Price Home. 2 dogs were run over.
It continued: “Puppies were found drowned in a neglected swimming pool. A horse was run over on a freeway. Animals just disappear into their home and are never seen again. Her guard dog broke into her neighbors’ yard and killed her chickens.
‘A dog trained to attack humans. Tore up her cat too. The neglect of her shows my crazy life. Cat feces with mold on it. Dog poop just left on the floor.
“Clothes are lying around everywhere. Alger grows up in her pool where her pup drowned. She jokes about her dirty mansion. But it’s no joke that animals die from their lack of care. Being left alone to meet an untimely death with no one saying enough is enough and continuing to sell their animals.
3 weeks ago the bulldog puppy named Rolo was in her care. Nobody knows, including her, how she died. We have to stop this now, no more animals have to die.’

Shocking: A source said: “Katie was in tears. She thought Captain would be fine without his leash since they lived on a friend’s private property which was very secure, but he managed to escape.
