Bad Bacteria

The television has done a good job at educating the larger population that positive bacteria can be beneficial and has capitalized on probiotics in many foods you can buy. This is important to do because there are bad bacteria that can wreak havoc on the gastrointestinal system leaving your child very sick.

Children with Autism often have very high pain thresholds so seeing their pain is not always possible, this is why testing becomes imperative. Your doctor needs to see what is going on so they can treat appropriately. When parents refuse to test it makes it nearly impossible sometimes. It will save you time and money in the end if you know what you are treating from the start.

The Journal of Pediatrics did a study on Helicobacter Pylori and GI symptoms back in March 2010. Most people will get stomach pain with these bacteria but how would you know if this was your child? Many other clues have to be considered, such as constipation, diarrhea, large volumes, malodorous, mucus or blood in stool. There is not one definitive thing that I can tell you, but if abnormal bowels are something your family has been struggling with then ask your doctor to test for H. pylori so you can rule it out. I find many kids have deeper issues to solve digestively so I always suggest stool and urine testing to get down to the bottom of what is happening in a child. It’s amazing what you can find out with two simple tests and in turn what you can heal with proper care.
