sweaty & wired

   My mother-in-law had a hysterectomy in her early 30s. My husdand has been suffering from extremely low hormones all of his life to where he has adrenal fatigue at 45yrs. My son is 6ft.6in. tall, 225lbs and sweats almost constantly and has a hard time falling alseep at night, even after a hard day's work mowing lawns in the heat. He exibited at an early age, easy distractability, inability to focus & concentrate (so he has been on adderall (adderrall) for ADD since age of 7yrs.). He gets a's & b's in school, has friends, and is a good kid. My concern is that he has some type of hormone disorder that is causing the ADD-like symptoms, the excessive sweating and any other future issues.
   My 10 yr. old daughter has the similar concentration issues, excessive energy, talks non-stop, is ALWAYS hungry and takes 18mg of Concerta during the school year to help her stay focused. She too has a problem falling asleep. I was giving her 10mg of melatonan every night to help her fall asleep. It did not work. With the school yr. starting soon, I was hoping to get these issues resovled before it started.
   Are there any connections between some of these symptoms of ADD( distractability, sleeplessness, irratability, running thoughts and constant hunger) and my husbands Adrenial Fatigue and my mother-in-law's similar problems. She too has thyroid & hormone issues and sleeplessness.
Please help my family & I. Just a bit of insight will help.

Not that I am aware of - thyroid testing would be reasonable for ADD symptoms but likely this is not endocrine related.

What about the other symptoms my son exihibits it seems that there could be a thyroid or endocrine connection there based upon comments that other people have made in regard to their disorders? His symptoms: excessive sweating, hard time falling asleep, distractability, difficulty concentrating.
