: I am pretty certain that my 8 year old daughter is ADD. I am not sure about getting her tested because
: of all the stress she has been under lately with the school testing her for pull out help. They are pulling her
: out of class 2 times a week for 30 minutes (a joke) to help her with comprehension. My daugter has trouble
: Paying attention, sitting still, staying on task, very insecure, no confidence and can never complete her
: school work. She is very slow and really struggles with school. She has a brother (4 years old) with
: autism. She has alot of bladder infections and took her to a childrens specialist and they said she has
: a high count of calcium in her urine. We are limiting her calcium intake to 100 mg. a day. I wonder if
: this is a sign of food allergies. She is such a special little girl but has a problem with weight gain (only in
: her stomach). My speech therapist that works with my son is working with her now and trying to help her.
: She thinks since my daughter is so sensitive that I should not do any more testing on her and she will
: try to help her. Not sure if giving her the label (ADD) is the right thing.
: I was wondering if anyone could give me advise on food allergies. Her brother is on a GF/CF diet and
: is doing great on it (really has helped him). When I talk to her about this diet she cries and begs me to
: please not make her do this diet. She loves dairy products (milk, icecream, cheese and cottage cheese).
: Would love some advice if this calcium in her urine is a indicationg of possible food allergies.
I am a mom of 4 and my youngest son(age three) had several markers for Autism. I have also worked in foster care with many children that have severe ADD/ADHD. I know of a food supplement that can truly make a difference in both of these arenas.
I so much believe in what this could do for your family. Please email me and I would be glad to share more information and clinical studies with you. Contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org
