This is what the doctor said to me when I told him that my son appeared to be in a lot of pain and has too much gas and eating issues. I told him that he screams and begs "no" at the sight of food, that he cries intensely shortly after eating, that his stomach sounds like a boiling pot. I tried to explain that many Autistic children have problems with their gut and that I would like to run tests to find out what is bothering my 4 year old who can not talk. The doctor was only interested in perscribing emimas and laxatives, no tests as they would be invasive.
Where in Florida can I find a doctor(GI) who is not hostage to HMO guidlines, a doctor who does not practice from a healthcare cookbook, one who will think for himself and do what is in my son's best interest?
The recepe for autism does not exist in the healthcare cookbook.
