Zinc and Iron

    This is going to be a quick one on zinc and iron and how it helped.

    Sierra chewed on metal and ice like crazy!  We would go to the park and she would chew on the swing chains, at home it was anything metal she could get her mouth on! She was about a year old when she started full blast with this and it continued until she was two years old when we started giving her zinc. She had slowed down when we put her on the multivitamin but she didn't stop completely until we gave her extra zinc.  Here are some pictures of her chewing on the doorstop!

    The same thing happened with ice, she was chewing on ice constantly when she wasn't chewing on metal!  She would hold an ice cube in her hand and just eat it like it was a cookie!  Sierra's hand would turn bright red from holding the ice and it didn't seem to bother her.  So after the zinc stopped the metal chewing, we focussed on the ice.  The doctor gave us iron to give to her and she stopped chewing on ice right away!

    Now I have always known that ice chewing could be a difficiency in iron but we were giving her iron in a multivitamin so we thought that something else was causing it.  We just were not giving her enough the doctor said.  He had done blood work and said she was low in these minerals even though she was taking the multivitamins!  Eating or chewing on non food items is most often a sign of some vitamin or mineral deficiency.

    I have a son that will be two years old on May 29th. He has Autism. We had his Iron and Vitamin D checked. The Iron came back at a 7 when it should be 50 or above. We have him on Iron now. His Vit D was low also which is what helps his body absorb Iron. He now is on Vit D also. The Iron is what takes Oxygen to his red blood cells that takes it to his brain. It effects his communication completely. He doesn't speak but since we put him on the Iron, he is trying now. Also, he use to be in a fog all the time. We put him on a Glutin Free diet and within one week, he started to may eye contact and now is pointing and interacting with us all the time. Just thought I would share. :)

    I just saw that you are in NC. We go to the Jeff Gordon Children's Hospital in Concord to a Neruo that works with children with Autism. He is awesome and is who had his Iron checked. He is a leading doctor of children with Autism in the Carolinas. His name is Dr. Corbier. We also took our son to Duke University Hospital to have Chromosone testing. I didn't think anything would come back but found out he has an extra chromosone also. It seems like everyday there is a new twist in the road on this journey we have. We have 8 kids with 6 grown, a 14 year old girl at home and this sweet blessing and last one. :) Hubby is retired Navy.

  3. Hi Carrie, We have a lot in common! My husband is retired Army Special Forces and we have six kids total, all grown except the last 2.... I say the same thing about the fog, the diet definitely pulled her back into this world and she would respond to what we were saying. I try to tell people about it but they act like it is too hard to try it. We go to Dr. Pittman in Raleigh NC, but we live down on the border of NC/SC. Thanks for sharing, I love to hear other people's stories!
