Gluten psychosis
" The present case-report confirms that psychosis may be a manifestation of NCGS  [non-coeliac gluten sensitivity] , and may also involve children; the diagnosis is difficult with many cases remaining undiagnosed. " Elena Lionetti and colleagues [1] (open-a...

Adult outcomes following childhood psychiatric problems
A long quote to begin: " If the goal of public health efforts is to increase opportunity and optimal outcomes, and to reduce distress, then there may be no better target than the reduction of childhood psychiatric distress—at the clinical and subthreshold l...

Medical comorbidity and adult autism (again)
Regular readers are probably tired of reading blog titles like the one for today on this site. It's not as if the idea that a diagnosis of autism might predispose someone to quite a few more comorbid conditions ( see here and see here ) hasn't been discusse...

Introduction
I have been involved in autism research for more years than I care to remember. My Questioning Answers blog (http://questioning-answers.blogspot.com/) is a place to describe and discuss various research into autism spectrum and related conditions. My Gutness Gracious Me blog (http://gutness-gracious-me.blogspot.com/) is for discussions on various gastrointestinal research. I make no recommendations, I am not giving any medical advice, I am not formulating any specific opinions and do not want to get into any ethical, political or religious debates. I am not trying to change anyone's opinions, views, beliefs or anything else. These are purely blogs about science and research in autism and a few other interesting things. Any posts I make are my own opinions and not reflective of any organisation I am affiliated to. Keep in mind that science deals with probabilities not absolutes.
If you're really interested in some of my bragging rights, you could have a look at my book... http://www.amazon.co.uk/Autism-Exploring-Casein-Free-practical-professionals/dp/0415727634/
