Explosive Anger Disorder (EAD): -"New" label in the lexicon of the psychologists & psychiatrists
Explosive Anger Disorder! (EAD) This is a "new" label in the lexicon of the psychologists and psychiatrists. (You should know that most such labels are
made up in order to get paid by insurance companies, and have no relation to real diagnosis.) It's for an old problem that has been around for many
decades. The funny thing is that most doctors have refused to recognize it, or the cause, and most still don't.
The official party line of the American Medical Assn. is that if there is no diabetes (measurable sugar affect), then there's no sugar problem. As is often
the case, they're WRONG! The problem is virtually always a sugar problem.
Hypoglycemia is a medical term for "low blood sugar". The brain requires large amounts of glucose and oxygen for fuel. When it goes below a certain
point, a hypoglycemic episode occurs. This can become almost any symptom up to and including coma and even death. In most cases, such a
hypoglycemic episode may only cause drowsiness or sleepiness, but fainting and passing out is not unknown.
Let's examine the actual cause of the "new" disease (label for insurance purposes) called "Explosive Anger Disorder" (EDT). As a result of blood sugar
going low because of excessive insulin released, both adrenalin and testosterone may be released in males. (In women, estrogen is released.) In
some males, this causes what is called "undifferentiated" rage in some men/boys. Does that sound like "explosive anger" to you? Of course it is. Why
do medical researchers keep re-inventing the wheel?
This may also be part of the current "road rage" problem as well as childhood tantrums, spousal abuse, bar fights, etc.
Back in the 1980's, I found several male patients who had this form of hypoglycemia. I also found that they all fit a "special" format of the MMPI
(Minnesota Multiple Personality Inventory) test for "psuedo-schizoprenia". Since that time, I have seen such "rages" in boys, and some men. If
