In Reply to: gfcf diet; I'm looking for more information posted by Teri on October 06, 2000 at 19:00:12:

I have always reckoned that the diet can do no harm. We didn't do any fancy or expensive tests and just trialled the diet with a behavioural chart and kept a diary. That provided us with enough info to know the diet was right for Stephen no matter what the tests might have told us. You can obtain an ATEC score on-line at the ARI and that is a useful tool for evaluating any new intervention.

Whether you start the diet or not I would be going to a doctor for advice on the white stool. Are they foul smelling? Do they float? Are they oily? These are some of the factors they are likely to ask about. As well as a parent I am also a nurse and abnormal stool can be indicative of a malabsorption problem or of pancreatic or biliary malfunction. This could well be something that is specific to your child and not related to the autism or could be a contributing factor to her problems. I think you need to get her checked out by a paediatric gastroenterologist no matter what.
