Yesterday I took my twins in to the pediatrician because they've had bad colds for a while, and one sounded a bit croup-y. She told me she'd been reading about links between Vitamin D and autism, and she thinks I should give T 5000 IU a day for a couple of months of Vitamin D and see what happens. Wow. I'm still looking into this. She suggested I read this, and I'm working on it. I haven't read the whole thing yet. Already there are claims in here that I am skeptical about, but I am keeping an open mind. I have heard lots of other autism parents claim their kids were very Vitamin D deficient and had benefited from extra Vitamin D, so I'm going to take a look. Thought you might like to take a look at it too.
I have 4 year old twins, both boys. They turned 4 in February 2011. When they were 23 months, one was diagnosed with pdd-nos, an autism spectrum disorder. I'm still not sure if I "believe in" the spectrum. I am posting anonymously in order to protect my son's privacy.
