Welcome to a new episode of The ADHD Women's Wellbeing Podcast! Have a look at some of Kate's workshops and free resources here. Check out all the ADHD Hormone Series Workshops here.

This is one of the most inspiring and empowering episodes I've recorded. We are at the cusp of new understandings about combining medical disciplines so we can understand ADHD in girls and women better through the lens of both hormones and psychiatry. This is for the lost generation of women who never got answers and for the future generations of girls who deserve better medical knowledge and research.

This week's guest is Dr Lotta Borg Skoglund. Lotta is an associate professor in psychiatry at the Department of Women and Children's Health at Uppsala University and an affiliated researcher at the Department of Clinical Neuroscience at Karolinska Institutet. Her scientific work and research target the intersection of ADHD and comorbidity conditions (substance use disorders, personality disorders and mood disorders) as well as gender discrepancies and hormonal factors associated with neurodiversity and ADHD. She is the author of six popular science books on ADHD and addiction, and her book ADHD Girls to Women - Getting on the Radar has been translated into several European languages, English and Korean.

On this episode of the ADHD Women's Wellbeing Podcast, Dr Lotta Skoglund and Kate spoke about:

  • Dr Lotta's ADHD diagnosis
  • ADHD purpose
  • The Seven ADHD lifestyle factors we need to think about daily
  • The Letterlife app initiative and research
