Expert Pearls

Autism - ammonia, short chain fatty acids - 50067

Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD)
Fecal samples from children with autism ASD showed higher fecal total short chain fatty acid concentrations; fecal acetic, butyric, isobutyric, valeric, isovaleric and caproic acids, and, fecal ammonia was also significantly greater in ASD. These changes may affect behavior.

Autism - casein-gluten free diet - 50044

Casein/gluten elimination in ASD children appeared to have a greater reduction in ASD symptoms upon parental survey if they had a previous diagnosis of food allergy, food sensitivities, GI symptoms and a stricter adherence to a gluten/casein diet.

Autism - folic acid, mother, pregnancy - 49239

Folic acid 600+ mcg in the mother was associated with reduced risk for ASD only when the mother and/or child had at least one copy of the less efficient MTHFR 677 T allele. Mothers of children with ASD had lower estimated folic acid intake on average, and were less likely to meet the recommendation for taking 600+ mcg folic acid during the first month of pregnancy than mothers of typically developing children. As the estimated amount of folic acid during the first pregnancy month increased, the associated risk for ASD in the child decreased. Am J Clin Nutr, 2012 Jul;96(1):80-9.
