Autism and Inflammation

As might be expected, people with autism tend to have the same decreased EPA and DHA levels and increased silent inflammation profile as seen with other neurological conditions.

So far no studies have been done to see whether high-dose fish oil supplementation can bring about behavioral improvements.

But, given the link between brain disorders, inflammation, and low omega-3 levels, these children would probably benefit from supplementation.

They would, however, need high-dose fish oil (probably similar to children with ADD) to reduce their silent inflammation profile to a level where positive behavioral changes can be seen.

Again, this would require periodic monitoring of the blood to adjust the dose as needed.

Have an awesome day!
