We 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.
Hello - My DD age 12 has TS, including a screaming tic. Confirmed malabsorption and gut issues. We seem to be having some success with a regimen of 100% Gluten-free, 90% dairy free, moving toward GAPS diet, non-GMO, Young Living essential oils (massage and diffuser), 500 mg of Taurine, Therbiotic Probiotic and digestive enzymes with some meals. My problem is she dislikes taking any supplements - even chewables. The probiotic and enzymes are chewables that she will only take mixed with yogurt - which is dairy and sugar! She will not swallow pills. Does anyone have a probiotic and/or digestive enzyme that they recommend that is either a liquid or some other form? Also I have not explored taking something to combat candida/yeast which she does have. Any recommendations? I have been adding one thing at a time because her anxiety increases with each additional "thing" she must take. Thank you ALL - this forum has been a lifesaver.
