Seriously woman give me a freaking break with your gfcf diet. It doesn’t cure Autism. I am so tired of seeing this woman’s face on my tv, computer and the paper that her son is cured because of this diet. Really? How about the fact you found out early and had the money to pay for every treatment under the sun. How about the fact that you can afford to do more than what a normal family can with insurance and disability. How about the fact that his symptoms are controlled and I am not so sure your completely honest with your story.
Today on ABC Nightly News there was a talk about how there is no real evidence whether this diet works or not.
I can say we tried this diet for 6 solid months. It was expensive and we saw NO improvement in symptoms or behaviors. So I don’t honestly believe this has any help with the “curing” of kids. What we did do and has worked some for the symptoms is removing dyes and most processed foods. Do we see huge differences? Not huge but enough for us to say ok they aren’t hyper and aren’t always hungry. That last part was enough of a change for us.
I was concerned they were missing important vitamins and other nutritional needs on this diet. You have to be careful not to go over board with this diet.
I hate that Ms. McCarthy is giving false hope to so many with a new diagnosis. Early intervention is key. Do my kids function yes and I am so happy for that. I don’t sugar coat when other moms ask what to expect. It is a long hard road and be ready for bills.
Sorry this topic just aggervates me to know end and more so her.
