What mineral and vitamin supplement helps reduce autism?

Wish that were so...: Although the internet abounds with stories of children with autism improving with certain vitamins, dietary supplements, and special diets, there is not evidence that any of these treatments help most children with autism. My patients are free to try these (if safe) if they want, though i don't endorse them. I wish there was a simple nutritional solution to this very difficult condition. ...Read more

Are there any good vitamin supplements that help with childhood autism?

Are there any good vitamin supplements that help with childhood autism?

Not Really: Many children with autism are picky eaters and have intestinal issues. Nonetheless, supplements are not helpful, expensive, and in some cases unsafe. Stories about improvement after starting a treatment appear to be compelling. However there is a lot of hidden bias in such stories.

Has it been looked into if an abundance of vitamin K in the blood causes autism? I know the study was of a deficiency of the vitamin. Thank you.

Has it been looked into if an abundance of vitamin K in the blood causes autism? I know the study was of a deficiency of the vitamin.  Thank you.

How to say this...: I'm glad you asked the question here. In 2006, someone in the not-so-mainstream world of unproven " biomedical" cures for autism, like treating yeast , thought that giving vit k would be curative. Later, someone decided that vitamin k shots given to newborns since i-don't- know-when were a cause of autism , claiming they were dissolved in a base..Or an acid..Or both..

Dose ? a bit low,: but might eventually be adequate maintenance given build. There is no advantage & ? cost to being in liquid form (will end up in liquid after ingesting) or daily timing. It typically takes 2-3 months to see how dose ingested per wk has worked out & many OTC forms are low quality, not very effective. B-12 rarely useful unless pernicious anemia, http://goo.gl/hTgfHM. Prednisone dangerous over time! ...Read more

An occupational : Therapist & a speech/language therapist often work together to determine the cause of self-limited diets in children with autism.
