Yes: Sucralfate serves more of a "coating" function for the stomach so it may help with your symptoms and worth a try. You may also wish to try some neutralizing agents like Tums or bicarbonate (sodium bicarbonate) containing antacids. Some alternative/natural agents also include manuka honey, parsley extract, ginger root, among others may also help. Make sure you have been evaluated for h pylori. ...Read more

Is there a diet for autistic adults with violent behavior problems which will help them feel more at ease? He is  only 18 and goes  through very dramatic ups and downs, we think it might be hormones.

In general though, the person to whom you are referring may benefit much more by seeing a board certified child psychiatrist. It may be hormones like you say, and that can be addressed as well.

I have read that the b.R.A.T.T. Diet is no longer recommened.  What would you suggest as an alternative for a 3 year old?

Many possibilities: I'm not sure what you've read but not all of it is valid.Kids routinely benefit from bananas, rice (cereal or steamed), apple sauce, pasta (without sauce) and dry toast.A good oral rehydration solution includes half strength gateraid, pedialyte or similar products.Avoid all juices (apple, prune, peach, pear) and use smaller but frequent feeds to sustain energy and hydration. ...Read more
