My son has PDD-NOS (aka autism). He has been having a very difficult time and we did some urine samples looking for heavy metals. His lead reading was 37 ug/g. It was almost to the end of the chart, meaning if he had any more they wouldn't have been enough room on the paper to quantify it. His mercury was 10 dL. We start chealation soon, but when I mentioned this to someone else they *freaked* and told me that this would put him at risk for liver damage and other problems. He has exhibited VERY aggressive behaviors since age 2, to the point that he has spent a week in a hospital for grabbing a knife and saying he was going to kill himself. 5 days ago he strangled his twin-and his twin vomitted for up to an hour afterward. We will have to place him out side the home for safety reasons, if chealation doesn't help. Is there hope that it will help him? He is also O.D.D and A.D.H.D in many ways, tho not diagnosed. He was also dx'd with PTSD-from his traumatic preamture birth and subsequent hospital stays and 5 surgeries to correct a heart defect and other anamolies.Reply Follow This Thread Stop Following This Thread Flag this Discussion
