logismum Posted April 15, 2013 Report Share Posted April 15, 2013 A couple of weeks ago we seen a new paedatrician in town to try and get a dx for my son, This did not happen as he said he doesnt look like a TS kid!! He did midly motor and loudly vocal tic in the 45min appt though so go figure. Anyway the only good thing i did get out of the expensive appt was a blood test to check some viatmin levels and he also got a liver function test done. I am waiting to get a physical copy for my records but i was told that all the levels were within normal range, i'm just wondering in by how much so will have to wait for that. He tested for.....Magnesium, calcium, zinc, iron and i think something else. I guess my question is will my son still benefit from vitamins if his levels are ok? We also have run out of vitamins from our natropath so my son hasnt been on anything for about 3 weeks now and i havent noticed a huge difference either way (maybe a little more vocal) so i am considering trying the Bontech supplements which have more correct levels suited to kids. Would i just start with the TS Control or purchase all of the products and introduce them slowly? He is still 90% vocal the rest motor. Also for those who dealt with Candida/leaky gut would you get that cleared first before introducing vitamins? I'm still only working with the naturopath on this one and need to get into her to do the candaplex/probiotic she's wants him to do next. In the last couple of weeks we have managed to find ourselves a new gp who listened and is taking it seriously, I got a referral to a paediatric neurologist in Brisbane, (australia) who has experience with TS and was recommended to me from other parents on the wonderful australian ts fb page, Just waiting on a phone call and appt. Any help/adivice appreciated Vanessa Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
