Has anybody tried the glueten free/ casein free diet for your autistic kids and if so did you notice improvement in your child's speech/ behavior?
Yes but a regular pediatrician is unlikely to do it since they don't know this specific test. Would need to see a MAPs doctor. Below is the test that we did.
It is simpler just to try the diet as that is the real test.
I have done gfcf. I did not see improvement with my son's speech. But it is different for everyone.
We tried casein free for a short while, noticed he was upset about the restriction (denying him macaroni and cheese when that was his favorite food) I'll admit he may have been "detoxing", but I also noticed he was a happier kid once I let him have the milk products again. I pick my battles...that one wasn't worth it.
Can the pediatrician do the testing?
