I'm doing a big research paper of my writing class about the treatments of autism, and I was wondering if there were any studies of children that have improved by changing their diets.. maybe the BTD?   I could call someone and do a "phone interview" if anyone knows somebody personally who has seen results.  Or if someone could point me to a medical journal, etc., that'd be great.  Thanks!

Eric, would be interesting to know what you find...

There are parents of autistic children who swear that a certain diet cured their children.  The diet that's most popular is the gluten-free / casein-free diet (no wheat or dairy).  Leaky gut is recognized as a big problem for these children.

GTG.  I'll post more later.


My SWAMI diet is a blend of BTD and GTD Explorer, but I'm not totally compliant.  Also I try to choose foods that have a Low Glycemic index.  DW and DD are A+, probably also Explorer.

Yes, additives and food dyes are addressed with the Feingold diet, another popular one.  It's a lot more restrictive in some ways than going GFCF.

I participated on the OASIS message boards at aspergersyndrome.org for a few years, BTW.

Jenny McCarthy came out with a book because of her son's autism, and I know she mentioned diet change. Try googling it... good luck, we all learn from each others' curiosities.

A great book on this subject is "Children with Starving Brains."

There are several books on the subject.  "Unraveling the Mystery of Autism and PDD" (Karyn Seroussi) is one on my shelf.

There is a poster by the name of Maestro who only comes and posts a question every once in a great while who has autism.  You might be able to do a search and find out where he is and how to get ahold of him.  He's somewhere in Europe if memory serves.

check out http://www.gfcfdiet.com  There are lots of testemonilas from parents about the effects of changes in diet (even though it is not specifically Blood Type diet.)  Many years ago there was a discussion on this board on the subject.  I am not sure if the old archives are still available.  If I find the papers I printed out I can let you know.
(I am a teacher of children with special needs, including autism.  Diet DOES make a difference. I was once told by our cook that a child should be allowed to choose chocolate or white milk.  I told her that when she was ready to take over my classroom after a specific child had chocolate milk - containing corn syrup- she could tell me that.  She came and observed the child for a few minutes on a day that he had chocolate milk and told me that I didn't have to offer him chocolate milk any more.  Point made!!)
