I have a 13 yr. old daughter, and my quest now is to help also with her concentration.
I'm looking at Non-celiacs gluten sensitivity right now. Her behavior is a huge concern to me, and I feel that it's diet related. She tested negative to celiacs and also had a scope that came out negative.
The biggest break-through was to have a fructose test. She is highly intolerant to fructose and sugar.
I'd be curious to hear more about your childs behavior. My daughter will get to the point that there is NO getting through to her, a disconnect. When it gets confronted, she gets extremely agitated, over dramatic, and it becomes more physical where she's hurting all over. The sooner she goes to sleep the better. That behavior has been curtailed when we are on a stict diet.
Before I go on, I'd like to see if we're both dealing with the same sort of issue. I'm all over the internet trying to figure this out as her dr. doesn't seem to understand the same thing I do about my daughters health/behavior.
