Autism usually appears during the first three years of life and four times more often in boys. As many as 1.5 million American children and adults are believed to have some form of autism, and the rate is growing at 10-17% per year. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, autism affects 1 in 150 children in the United States. In Wisconsin autism is effecting over 6,000 children over the age of three. MD Custom Rx offers solutions that can help children with autism in Wisconsin, and their parents, lead a more normal life.
It appears that most children with autism suffer from mercury toxicity, and may potentially benefit from detoxification. The following chelation therapies can be compounded into a variety of hypoallergenic dosage forms (i.e. oral, transdermal, rectal).
Many commonly used medications - antibiotics, decongestants, and pain relievers including acetaminophen and ibuprofen - may contain gluten. Even flavors can contain gluten.

Most children with autism have a need for increased amounts of vitamins, minerals, and some amino acids. Some detoxification agents can remove essential minerals; so additional minerals will be needed. Speak to our professional pharmacist about pharmaceutical-grade nutritional supplements to meet the needs of your child.
A large number of autistic children have abnormalities in gut permeability, defects or deficiencies in intestinal enzymes, and/or abnormal intestinal flora. Yeast overgrowth can be treated by oral administration of Lactobacillus, or use of probiotics. Nystatin and amphotericin B are antifungals that may be administered orally to help reduce yeast in the gut, but which are not significantly absorbed into the bloodstream; so systemic side effects are minimized.
