Is a Gluten and Dairy Free (GF/CF) diet really necessary?

Is a Gluten and Dairy Free (GF/CF) diet really necessary?

Dr. Jerry Kartzinel on 31 October 2011 wrote,
I am often asked if the Gluten and Dairy Free (GF/CF) diet is really necessary.  While that answer really depends on each individual child, in my practice up to 80% of the children I see clearly benefit from removing foods that contain dairy and gluten!
....The potential problem for children on the spectrum of Autistic Disorders is that they are often unable to substantially break down gluten during the process of digestion.  Instead, they end up with gliadorphins, also known as gluteomorphins.  These gliadorphins can act as opiates and cause a range of potential behavioral modifications in children, the same range of behaviors that the casomorphins found in dairy can cause.  These behaviors include:

  • Constipation News/Announcements
  • Cravings
  • Diarrhea
  • Sleepless nights
  • Hyperactivity
  • Bed-wetting
  • Resistance to potty training
  • Hyperactivity Aggressive behaviors
  • Dark circles under the eyes
  • Bloated belly
  • Flatulence (lots of gas being passed)
  • Irritability
  • Self-injurious behaviors
  • Severe self imposed dietary restriction (craving only milk containing products)
