In Reply to: gfcf diet; I'm looking for more information posted by Teri on October 06, 2000 at 19:00:12:
With the white poops, you're on the right track. have you been to www.gfcfdiet.com? have you had her blood tested for the peptides that indicate she would benefit from a gfcf diet? it's easy. just go to your doctor, take a blood sample, and send it to Alletess labs, MA. (800)-225-5404). They'll send you a packet. Have you had an endoscopy or colonoscopy to check for esophagitis or pollips in the colon? both are very common in autistics. see a good gastroenterologist who is familiar with autism.
: We've had our daughter tested for allergies. She has none. I breast fed her the first eighteen months of her life and when she did start eating food I introduced one food item at a time, watching for reactions. I did this for my two older children also. My daughter has never drank a gallon of milk a day, nor has she been allowed to consume food products loaded with sugar. She has always had good bowel movements, however her stools are nearly white. Are there any opinions/in sights? regarding the gfcf diet. We have done very well treating her autism homeopathically, but I'm always looking for something else that may further improve the quality of her life. Thanks to all in advance for your thoughtfulness. Very Best Regards.
: P.S. fyi - she's 14, hypoglycemic (she's on a diet for that), and on an autism scale from 1 - 10 she's a 5.
