autism due to abx? - Page 2

post #21 of 27
Okay, its not my fault. There is something wrong with Pubmed. When they get themselves unconstipated the links should work.

We should prescribe them a massive dose of vitamin C and probiotics, and I'm glad its not me because to put all that together again, would not have thrilled me.

Only the general search is working and it will come up with titles.

I'll show you what I mean.

Go to Pubmed.


Put in this title in the box.

The role of the intestinal microflora for the development of the immune system in early childhood.

It will retrieve five citations for you,

but if you try and click on any of them to read the abstract, you will get the same error message that you get when you click on mine.

So I can give you titles and you will know they are there, but asking to see abstracts results in computer conniptions in pubmed.

No symptoms. What about other symptoms other than constipation? Did you go to the ob knowing you had a UTI?

A great 2 part article summarizing some current ASD treatment:

Autism, An Extreme Challenge to Integrative Medicine.
Part 1: The Knowledge Base
Autism, archetype of the autistic spectrum
disorders (ASD), is a neurodevelopmental
disorder characterized by socially aloof
behavior and impairment of language and
social interaction. Its prevalence has surged
in recent years. Advanced functional brain
imaging has confirmed pervasive neurologic
involvement. Parent involvement in autism
management has accelerated understanding
and treatment. Often accompanied by epilepsy,
cognitive deficits, or other neurologic
impairment, autism manifests in the first three
years of life and persists into adulthood. Its
etiopathology is poorly defined but likely
multifactorial with heritability playing a major
role. Prenatal toxic exposures (teratogens) are
consistent with autism spectrum
symptomatology. Frequent vaccinations with
live virus and toxic mercurial content
(thimerosal) are a plausible etiologic factor.
Autistic children frequently have abnormalities
of sulfoxidation and sulfation that compromise
liver detoxification, which may contribute to the
high body burden of xenobiotics frequently
found. Frequent copper-zinc imbalance implies
metallothionein impairment that could
compound the negative impact of sulfur
metabolism impairments on detoxification and
on intestinal lining integrity. Intestinal
hyperpermeability manifests in autistic children
as dysbiosis, food intolerances, and exorphin
(opioid) intoxication, most frequently from
casein and gluten. Immune system
abnormalities encompass derangement of
antibody production, skewing of T cell subsets,
aberrant cytokine profiles, and other
impairments consistent with chronic
inflammation and autoimmunity. Coagulation
abnormalities have been reported. Part 2 of this
review will attempt to consolidate progress in
integrative management of autism, aimed at
improving independence and lifespan for
people with the disorder.
(Altern Med Rev 2002;7(4):292-316)
Autism, An Extreme Challenge to Integrative Medicine.
Part II: Medical Management

Autism and allied autistic spectrum disorders
(ASD) present myriad behavioral, clinical, and
biochemical abnormalities. Parental
participation, advanced testing protocols, and
eclectic treatment strategies have driven
progress toward cure. Behavioral modification
and structured education are beneficial but
insufficient. Dietary restrictions, including
removal of milk and other casein dairy
products, wheat and other gluten sources,
sugar, chocolate, preservatives, and food
coloring are beneficial and prerequisite to
benefit from other interventions. Individualized
IgG or IgE testing can identify other
troublesome foods but not non-immune
mediated food sensitivities. Gastrointestinal
improvement rests on controlling Candida and
other parasites, and using probiotic bacteria
and nutrients to correct dysbiosis and
decrease gut permeability. Detoxification of
mercury and other heavy metals by DMSA/
DMPS chelation can have marked benefit.
Documented sulfoxidation-sulfation inadequacies
call for sulfur-sulfhydryl repletion and
other liver p450 support. Many nutrient
supplements are beneficial and well tolerated,
including dimethylglycine (DMG) and a
combination of pyridoxine (vitamin B6) and
magnesium, both of which benefit roughly half
of ASD cases. Vitamins A, B3, C, and folic acid;
the minerals calcium and zinc; cod liver oil; and
digestive enzymes, all offer benefit. Secretin,
a triggering factor for digestion, is presently
under investigation. Immune therapies
(pentoxifyllin, intravenous immunoglobulin,
transfer factor, and colostrum) benefit selected
cases. Long-chain omega-3 fatty acids offer
great promise. Current pharmaceuticals fail to
benefit the primary symptoms and can have
marked adverse effects. Individualized, in depth
clinical and laboratory assessments and
integrative parent-physician-scientist cooperation
are the keys to successful ASD management.

i don't know why i didn't get a notice that there was a new response. sorry for the delay!

i went as a regular prenatal visit. they did the urine dip thing and said there were a higher then normal level of nitrates. asked if i had an infection, to which i replied no, since i have no symptoms. she said she felt better doing a culture anyway. a few days later i got a message saying it came back positive, call back with pharmacy info. i never called back. i happen to be switching docs and hospitals, so my current doc called the new midwife and had her call me.

she pretty much used scare tactics, such as high levels of bacteria cause miscarraige, etc.
