Tourette's disorder and other tic disorders are neurodevelopment conditions characterized by involuntary motor and vocal tics. While the etiology of these disorders is not fully understood, there is growing evidence to suggest that modifiable factors such as nutrition, environmental factors, and sleep patterns may influence the severity of tic symptoms. This study aims to investigate the relationships between these modifiable factors and tic severity in individuals with Tourette's disorder and other tic disorders.
