We recently started DS on a GFCF diet even though he doesn't have many signs of being intolerant to dairy or gluten. We are trying it because I read how it can be so helpful to kids with ASD- like night and day in some cases.
It hasn't been very long but I haven't noticed any changes.
If you started your kid on GFCF, when did you notice positive results? Was it very obvious all of a sudden, or was it gradual?
I'm very committed to sticking to the diet if it does in fact make a difference, but we're also very into cooking and eating all sorts of different foods around here and we'd be ecstatic if we could rule this out and go back to eating "normally"!
If I don't notice changes in a while, should I reintroduce gluten or dairy and see if it makes a difference that way?
What are small changes that I might not notice as someone new to all this?
