Hi Ann,

I am also trying to do CLO with my son and am struggling to get started. I hope you don't mind some more questions!


:I bought Total Essential Fatty Acids ( in liquid form)
: It contains a mixed Vitamin E with evening primrose and borage oils. It has been
: great. I dose it according to GLA requirements.

How do you know how much GLA your child needs?

: Here's what Dr Megson reccommends: Pretreat for about 2 weeks with
: Vitamin E 200-400IU/day plus Vitamin C 250-100 twice a day.
:

We have recently added Evening Primrose Oil and are working up to the suggested amounts of extra vitamin C and E. We plan to start CLO after we get adjusted to those newest additions. My son has been having loose stools recently---could the vitamins and EPO do that?
The dose he suggests for vitamin E seems pretty high, considering the RDA is somewhere between 10-30 I.U. Is excess vitamin E likely to cause problems?
I guess the vitamin C is pretty high, too, but I've always heard excess C is just excreted in the urine.

Thanks for any information!
