Healing the Gut - help
Misy_15 posted a topic in Tourette Syndrome and TicsWe recently had an OAT and IgG tests run for my 6 year old son who has Tourette’s (and OCD / Anxiety). OAT results showed elevated Arabinose, Lactic and Hydroxyhippuric. It also showed extremely low Ascorbic (vit C). The IgG test showed high sensitivity to Wheat. Wheat Gluten, Gliadin and Whey. With moderate sensitivity to Cassein, Cheese and cow’s milk. I would be really interested to hear if anyone who has done similar tests / had similar results and what you have done since them. I’ve not been able to find anyone in the UK who has much background in Tourette’s and the gut/brain connection, so feel we are doing this a bit blind. Our son is taking a magnesium and omega 3 supplement and are now starting a gluten free diet. A herbalist has given us an additional supplement for the yeast infection (using camomile and a few other herbs). I was interested in some of the posts on histamine – and looking at trying to decrease DAO, but don’t really know whether this is also something to try. Any advice, thoughts, input would be great.
Somebody here made this test and willing to share it over here? (if that is too long for you, then at least post your arabinose results which is elevated with people with autism or similar problems, autism can be also aspergers such as high functioning autism which doesn't seem to be autistic on the outside) also write your background story of problems you have, anxiety, sleep disorders, aspergers, autism, pandas syndrome, etc.. here are my results: http://imgur.com/a/PnJil My problems: Severe social anxiety, schizoid personality disorder or aspergers (socially disabled - can't talk to people), generalized anxiety disorder, seasonal affective disorder (worse depression in winter), severe chronic insomnia (after lots of stress events), psychotic disorder, maybe PANDAS syndrome when i was a child (and maybe now it effects me in a way of depression and more), major depression (was mild depression but major after a break up with somebody i loved.. aspergers is autism, and i do think i have symptoms of high function autist.. i don't look like one but i'm very screwed when it comes to socializing with people, severely.
