I recommend that all children have their Vit D levels checked
The doctor should order a 25OH Vit D3 level- the optimal level is between 60 and 80. Recent studies have shown benefits from Vit D in children with ASD Most children require at least 1000 iu of Vit D3 daily which is much less than is found in most supplements
Has your DAN! doctor ordered a MTHFR gene test? It is available through Quest labs. It will give you an idea of whether or not your child has a defect in the methylation pathway. This info can help determine whether or not your child is likely to benefit from methyl B12 injections.
