They can sometimes show strep, although from what I understand, it can hide in lots of crazy places besides the gut.

I assume that mom not dealing with the bacteria or virus appropriately means something's odd with mom's health, and therefore with kiddo's as well, so I'd bet there are different things intertwined together in each case. Stuff like that is talked about in ASD circles, I've barely read anything about it, I think I am going to start reading more.

Here's one take on the topic.
The gut bacteria issue is talked about by this guy:

Healing the New Childhood Epidemics: Autism, ADHD, Asthma, and Allergies: The Groundbreaking Program for the 4-A Disorders

I'm betting he tests for it at his clinic in NY.

Can you access this information without joining her forum? I guess I should read up since its going to take a while.

I'll get my school test results tomorrow, as well as a plan of action from the functional medicine MD. He believes I need major gut work before dealing with metals & such b/c I won't be able to detox them properly. But that was based on a previous stool test so who knows.



On mthfr - Yasko is 45% heterozygous for each of the two mutations, so I'd guess a lot more than 45% have at least one mthfr mutation (but I don't know how many). I know DS is fairly unusual in not having any mthfr mutations.

She doesn't really consider mthfr one of the tougher mutations, unless you are homozygous for A1298C (in which case the issue is more how it impacts BH4, not folate).



Yasko has a ton of stuff on this, Tanya. In her presentations, and there's plenty of info in the forum as well (there's one devoted to viral issues), and a whole list of antiviral supps she recommends.

However, her basic position is that first you get methylation working, because that is the first line of defense against viruses (sticking a methyl group on foreign DNA is one of the primary ways our body turns off viruses, instead of ending up with chronic viral load.

She also believes we are all exposed to these viruses all the time, so it doesn't have to be maternal transmission.



I'm kind of ignorant on it. Have you done a CSA? Sometimes you can see your strep load there (but not always).



We're seeing viral die off as we improve methylation. In particular, I think adding NADH caused a big viral reaction (when I went to fast we got funky rash all over, never seen anything like it).

As I said above, lots of reading in the Yasko forums on viral issues, it's a big piece of what she looks to address (but as a second step, after getting methylation functional).

In terms of gene expression, there's lots of genes that may or may not be turned on in our lifetimes. The panel Yasko runs, though, she's very focused in on particular genes that are core to methylation or related processes - so they are very much turned on. You'd be dead if they weren't.
That was a question I had last night. That not all genes get expressed. But it sounds like these would, no matter what.

Thanks for the info Deb. You're starting a movement, you know?

You guys are losing me on the mutation talk. My head is spinning.

I'm sorry your doc wants more testing, did s/he talk about when you can get that set up? I'll pray for a great outcome.

He wants it done asap so that it's not hanging over my head for the summer. he knows I go away so he's checking into which specialists can see me the quickest. I feel so shaky. what's a good calmer downer besides Mg, which I already take lots of?

I think I posted about this here already? Anyhow, the original study didn't talk about gut bacteria, it tested for taurine & glutamate in pee. There are soooo many reasons those two things can be off, and they have more to do with brain biochemistry than gut biochemistry. My son, for what it is worth, would have totally failed their "diagnostic" test.

The thing I like about Yasko's genetics test is that when you know your genetics, it can really help with chronic gut issues. There are 4 different mutations that are really common with more severe gut issues, including the need for lots of B12. If you don't take care of those (mutation specific supports), then treating the gut will only work for a short time, and the problem will recur. Sooooo many kids on the spectrum end up on antibiotics over and over and over because the gut bugs keep coming back.

Also, clearing metals will likely stir up gut bugs again - so I don't agree with the people who think you can cure the gut and then work on the metals. Both are ongoing issues, and you need an approach that can work on both together...

Huge hugs, Kathy. I don't know if data will feel helpful or not. 80% of biopsies are negative. I hope your doctor can get you seen quickly.

Ok, now I'm paranoid about the approach the function md is going to take. How does one address both at the same time?

I'd say a lot of people treat both at once. Seems like most of the people on the autism-mercury list have probiotics and some sort of anti-fungal going on at the same time they're chelating. Flares of candida happen toward the end of rounds, round stops and it may take a few days to get back to baseline, then (hopefully) improvements are seen, rinse, repeat many, many times. More complex stuff for more gut issues, and lots of variation in exactly how it's working, but it seems like a good approach.

What Tanya said . Basically, take a "gentler" approach to gut bugs than antibiotics, one you can sustain over time. Here's the basic supp Yasko uses, just so you can get a sense of the possible range of ingredients you can use. I have DS on 1/3 cap of this every morning, and probiotics every night, and that seems to be enough to keep everything under control (he may still have bad gut bugs, but I don't see evidence of anything getting worse - if I did, I'd increase the dosage for a few days).

Then we are attacking methylation and general gut environment by supporting his mutations - he has the ACAT mutation, which is one that left unsupported, results in very bad guts a lot. So getting that and the pancreatic supports in place, and B12. We've seen lots of die off during that process, so I assume his gut is getting a lot better, even though I suspect he is also dumping metals. There are a couple of markers on his MAP urine test that suggest he had moderate gut bacteria & yeast issues. We're going to redo that test in a couple of weeks. If those markers aren't back in normal ranges, then we'll do a stool test to see specifically what we are dealing with, and get more aggressive.

Newbie here... but have been soaking up all of the momma wisdom for a while, for which I am very, very grateful.

Ds is intolerant to dairy & gluten. We've eliminated both completely from his diet since the beginning of the year and have seen good results... less GI issues, less eczema. (The sleeping thing hasn't really improved totally, so I'm not sure what's going on w/that.)

The frustrating thing is, from time to time he'll grab snacks he's not allowed from his brothers (we haven't entirely transitioned the whole family over to GF yet) or, like this past weekend, my mom will give him something like mac-&-cheese while she's babysitting him (think she had a momentary brain lapse).
The really weird thing is that lately his symptoms after he has these foods is more behavior related than GI anymore. Has anyone else had experience w/this? I think I'm picking up a pattern... exposure to the food, then 2 days later... MISERY! (Banging head on floor, extremely irritable, hitting, more pronounced sleep issues, & poor appetite.) It used to be poop, now it's behavior....

Just wondering if it's common for his symptoms to change like that. I'm finding it hard to decipher between normal toddler stuff and his body crying out for help. I can't discipline him lately b/c I have this gut feeling things are just not right w/him.

At work...just popping in to give hugs to kathy. Praying for strong health for you!

Ds is coming out of his detox craziness. Slept fine last night and no more anger and hitting the walls... Still pooping daily with some help last night (suppository). Should we settle here for a few days then go to enzymes and viracen 2x per day instead of the current 1x per day? Thanks

Yup, that's what we had here, totally behavioral reactions to dairy & gluten...

Yay!! Yes, I'd hold off a few more days, hopefully get mag to a place where he's almost at diarrhea and pooping daily on his own, then move to 2x/day with enzyme first, then viracen.

Yes, definitely. As DD is getting older, her symptoms have gone from more skin issues to behavioral issues (along with some GI issues as well.) Some foods, like corn, only cause behavior issues for her.

Thanks as usual for your help! That is what I was thinking re the mag, too. So nice when I start to know what to do and then get affirmation. One of these days I have to get into your genetics thread. I see big application to my family, esp ds, dd2 and myself but just have few brain cells to devote to that right now.

Back to work!

Totally common over here. For my DS, he's gone from projectile vomiting to screaming all night long to rash on his butt to bedwetting to "growing pains", etc. each time we try to reintroduce dairy.

Oh, so I called DH to tell him I need a biopsy, and he said "don't worry about it... but could you update all the kids' allergy lists and where you buy all their safe food just in case." Gee, thanks. butthead.

Does anyone know where I can get a lovely list of the aliases corn goes by? How about soy?

Also_is there anything I can do support-wise to help him move through his reaction sooner? We do Epsom salt baths a couple times a week. I haven't started him on any supps yet, except for CLO, b/c I'm still reading up on good sources for them, etc.
I have many discussions from these boards cut and pasted into my Microsoft OneNote to read/absorb once school is out... can't wait to figure it all out. In the meantime, if there's anything I can do for him now... Would Vitamin C help?

That's exactly the same kind of stupid thing my DH would say. I said something to him yesterday about being chubby now (while trying on clothes) and he said "you're not chubby, you're solid" or something equally as stupid.

It sort of made me laugh though. Maybe I should finish the book I started at Christmas (Dale Carnegie) "How to Stop Worrying, and Start Living". One of the things says not to worry until you have something to worry about, because if you worry about it beforehand, then you're worrying twice.

My baking soda was expired (2008). My biscotti didn't rise. I'm batting 1000.
