It is best for the Autism Patient to modify their diet and try a blend of a variety of foods, supplements and medication to control the symptoms. Foods that create problem should be avoided:-
- Food Sensitivity. Many children with autism have food sensitivities, due to abnormalities in their digestive and/or immune systems. If food is not fully digested into individual sugars, amino acids, etc., then the partly digested food can cause the immune system in the gut to react to those foods. This reaction is much more likely to occur if there is
inflammation of the gut.
