This confuses me because this raises the rate of diagnoses even higher.

Either the genetic estimates are really wrong, or the changes in diagnostic criteria are really wrong, or the environmental factors have a much bigger impact on the rate of diagnosis than previously thought?

Genetic factors alone could not change so quickly.

Epigenetic factors could.

I'm not sure what you're asking here.

Mild and moderate may not have been diagnosed in the past.
Inattentive types might not have been diagnosed in the past.
Girls/women often were not diagnosed in the past.

Now that these types of adhd are recognized the overall rate of diagnosis is
higher. That makes sense to me.
