Thank you for replying to my message regarding Creatine- I found it only today
My comments and questions:
1) I have not heard about the research that you wrote mentioned in U. of CA, San Diego (UCSD) and I couldn't find anything on the Web about it. If you know of any site please let me know. I also want to verify with you that you did not mix Creatine (the subject of my message) with Carnitine- the two are totally different substances:-)
2) In your reply you said "Dr. Ted Paige gave a lecture on creatine levels in autistic kids at a conference of autism topics in Orlando, Fla". I searched Medline for the name "Paige T" (that is the way one searches for authors on Medline). I found only 3 published research papers; none was related to neurological conditions or pediatrics and none was from UCSD. It is possible that you misspelled his name.
3) You also mentioned "fellow researcher, Dr. Arnie Millar" and I searched for Millar A. It is always of an advantage to know the second initial and in the case of Dr. Millar it is necessary since there are several Millar A+ a different second initial. However, I found one researcher with the name Millar A. (first initial only) from Berkley who published ONLY 2 studies so far and both were about drinking and driving.
Of course I do not expect to find a study from either of these researchers about creatine but I wanted to read what they published anyway.
Thank you for responding but I really do not know what to make of the info. If by any chance you have more information please let me know. If you noticed, the abstract that I posted did not come from the USA but from Italy and it also did not "claim" any cure; it was an interesting description of 2 cases.
